Moscow Case: from Dialectics of Hope to a Chronology of Hopelessness Alena Boika | info | 01.04.2004
MOSCOW CASE: FROM DIALECTICS OF HOPE TO A CHRONOLOGY OF HOPELESSNESS
The First Moscow Biennale with a meaningful name Dialectics of Hope will open on January 28, 2005. This first one will be the most scandalous one. The scandal is associated with the two most prominent curators Viktor Miziano and Joseph Backstein. Initially, both names were among the head curators. Then, it turned out that Miziano was absent from the curatorial group. On May 22, 2004, it became…

WELCOME TO THE FREE WORLD
“Welcome to the free world!” - productive squabbling at Authentic Structures – symposium and discussion platform, Prague December 2004. The colourful squabbling at this event was productive in the sense that very different voices were heard and intensely complex issues - of a workable infrastructure for fine art in any case, and in a post Communist world in particular - were extrapolated. The…

THE GWANGJU BIENNALE
Gwangju is pretty far from Middle Europe. But the experiences from Southern Korea can be inspiring and empowering knowing that something’s happening somewhere. The Gwangju Biennale is a huge exhibition that brings top presentations of contemporary art creation to a place that has an interrupted or, to be more precise, no tradition of contemporary art. This presents a problem in itself, before…

THE SCANDAL AT THE 5TH CETINJE BIENNIAL
Speaking at a National Campaign for the Arts conference in London, June this year, playwright David Edgar said it was the responsibility of artists to challenge great cultural institutions. Art, Edgar explained, „has been properly concerned not to preserve national identity, but to question it … disrupting rather than confirming how we see the world.“ Edgar then called for provocation and…

ARS ELECTRONICA 2004 – DIGITAL CIRKUS, MANDALAS AND TRACES
The 25th anniversary gathering of the Ars Electronica festival successfully encapsulated a quarter century of electronic and digital art. On one side it featured projects and presentations expanding on one of the original aesthetic values associated with technological art—interactivity. On the other, it strongly promoted projects dealing with computer visualizations that represent a more…

RAFANI 2: THE FUTURE SHOULD BE PLANNED
It seemed for a moment that Rafani was losing its breath. This Czech art group — which investigates whether and how art can be linked to political ideologies and whether it is possible to carry on a deeper discussion outside of self-promotion — had became its own pastiche. Their tailored uniforms had frayed at the sleeves and their KSČM communist party membership cards were returned with humbug. …

The assembled group…

MAREK POKORNÝ: WHO FROM WHERE TO WHERE AND WHO SWITCHES OFF WHOM
The curator and theoretician Marek Pokorný returned after a few years in Rome to the Czech Republic and became curator of the House of the Lords of Kunštát (dům pánů z Kunštátu) in Brno. A year later he left the position to become the director of the Moravian Gallery. Is this change a promise of new opportunities for contemporary art or the end of work well begun? You started profiling Dům…
