Fear Not the Fair Ivan Mečl | news | 01.04.2001
FEAR NOT THE FAIR
"A number of Czech art theorists and artists are still under the impression that art fairs amount to nothing but a brown stain on the list of international art happenings. The more pragmatic consider them a necessary evil; they will sometimes dare to visit one, but the tradition of contemptuously slamming fairs perseveres. This is called the anxiety of reality and the panicky fear of looking into…

A VIEW ON GLOBALIZATION AT THE SLOVINIAN PAVILION IN VENICE
The prevailing multicultural tendencies of late postmodernism and its pluralist aesthetics have ultimately merged into the globalized world of new technology, interaction and speed that McLuhan envisioned years ago. Although our existence today is confronting the climax of the capabilities that the post-human world is offering — the mess of total alienation through new media and painful…

SCOTT`S FILM COLUMN
"There is much talk today about the so-called “Dogme” school of filmmaking, in which extraneous music, violence and props are kept to an austere minimum, the idea being to strip cinema down to its bare essence: actors performing a screenplay in front of a strategically placed camera. That should be enough, adherents say, to capture whatever it is you’re trying to capture. Standing in opposition…

GRADUATES
Cars stole the show at this year’s exhibition of graduates from the Fine Arts Academy (AVU) in Prague. Vít Novotný’s massive ”Batmobile” made from solid wood hunkered in front of Veletržní Palác and the artist (from Karel Nepraš’ studio of sculpture), gave free rides around the building. Once inside the exposition viewers discovered Jitka Havlíčková’s (Miloš Šejn’s studio of conceptual tendencies…

MOTHER ACT
In July, Universal NoD gallery saw an action of parental activists fighting for the emancipation of art within the family. Their manifesto attempted to convince us that artists/parents were being oppressed by a mass of lonely and antisocial artists/non-parents. These goons have too much time for their art and self-promotion through various excesses and are too easily able to win the artistic…

LITERÁRNÍ SPOT:BATMAN@STEALTH.COM
"Gotham City, 1953. Batman is lying in bed, wearing the famous “batmask,” complete with pointy ears. He’s listlessly playing with his cock. Is he masturbating? Flesh & Blood on October 15 last year (according to well-informed sources) claimed that Batman detested sperm, and, out of principle, refused to masturbate. On the other hand, Flesh & Blood, February 21 this year, described in detail the…

ICAFollowing its earlier spotlighting of Beijing and Bombay, June saw the ICA continue its survey of art in significant urban centers, this time presenting works from contemporary Berlin. The organizers were inspired to create this three-year-long series of exhibitions by a sense that urban loyalties are gradually replacing the power of national identity. Berlin artists Oliver van den Berg,…

IMAGE YOUR DESIRE
For a while it seemed as if everything imaginable was happening at Universal Space NoD in Prague, that is, before the government inexplicably decided to shut it down. But before they could padlock the door, from 27–30 March the Swedish/Czech production of A Mantelpiece — A Story for the Eye by the Blackstone groups artfully cluttered the backroom of the building with their floor-to-ceiling live…
