The Beagle Boys Are Here David Kulhánek | artist | 01.04.2001
THE BEAGLE BOYS ARE HERE
"Few initiatives in the Czech art scene in recent years have attempted to break past the borders of the communal cottage industry that is the visual arts. Generally speaking, only rarely does Czech art respond to immediate social and political influences; and if it does, the reaction is almost always refined and polite. The activities of the Czech group Rafani (Beagle Boys in English) are…

ARTIST OF A NEW ERA
"Biographical art novels, plays, films, TV series and talk shows can all be trawled in the search for an archetype of the artist, but it’s a rich field and the range of images is broad. The key to identifying a true artist is the recognition of certain fundamental signifiers (in addition, naturally, to quality output). Since a systematic list of such signs is not the subject of this text, I will…

THE MONOSODIUM EFFECT
"From MSG to ZenJuly 25, 1908 is an historic day. Unaware of the consequences, Professor Kikunae Ikeda of Tokyo University is patenting his method of manufacturing Glutamic acid. He has discovered the secret of “the fifth taste,” or umami (deliciousness), and extracted it from the Kombu seaweed that his wife brings home from the market. In fact, Ikeda also goes on to discover a way to mass…
Filling the Unfillable Nebojša Jovanović | artist | 01.02.2001
FILLING THE UNFILLABLE
The theorist Renata Salecl has noticed a certain preconception whilst lecturing in the West: Western universities invariably expect her to speak primarily about events in the region she is from, meaning Eastern Europe, the former Yugoslavia or Slovenia. The list of relevant topics includes the fall of socialism, post-socialist phenomena, nationalism, and so on.1 It has become a rule of thumb that…
Unveiled Beauty Karel Císař | artist | 01.01.2001
UNVEILED BEAUTY
"There is no doubt today that art historian Jan Avgikos was correct two years ago when she claimed that one of the images that would always remind us of the 1990s was of a formation of twenty girls in Tom Ford’s Gucci bikinis, or without them, standing still at the center of the New York Guggenheim’s rotunda. On 23 April 1998 about 500 invited guests were lucky enough to see Show, the work of the…

JOKER ON THE LOOSE (IEPE RUBINGH)
They took him to the police station for interrogation. But he’d counted on this and had consulted his lawyer beforehand who explained to him all the possible penalties, which ranged from a pardon to fines and imprisonment. He was anxious to find out what scenario the uniformed peacekeepers would pursue. Still, he and his lawyer would plead for the mildest possible punishment. After all, he…
A Space Expedition & Laboratory Experiments Holger Emil Bange | artist | 01.04.2000
A SPACE EXPEDITION & LABORATORY EXPERIMENTS
"When I first saw Max Mohr’s objects in 1992 in the Museum of Modern Art in Frankfurt, I was attracted and repelled at the same time. I was confused but they gripped me; I was excited but I felt like I should be careful. I had never seen absurd forms and materials like these in art, and all I could feel was respect. At first I wasn’t sure how to appreciate the works, but they soon drew me into…
Paraphotographer or Photografist? Jana Tichá | artist | 01.03.2000
PARAPHOTOGRAPHER OR PHOTOGRAFIST?
Paraphotographer or Photografist? I did not make up the words in the title myself: the first one was invented by Robert Heinecken, when he tried to label his own artistic activities, and the other one was invented for Heinecken’s art by the art critic Arthur C. Danto. Both basically wanted to make clear that Heinecken is not a photographer in the regular sense of the word, meaning someone who…
