THE BLOOD RITUAL (B&B)
EntranceThe Big Paranoia Gallery is packed with guests clutching plastic cups of wine. A side table is loaded with cold dishes of lobster, broth jelly, a whipped mousse of smoked salmon (garnished with tiny shrimp and seasoned with green tomatoes in the Mexican “coulis” style), rows of fantastic little sandwiches, an apple pie, various salads and creams, pudding with cognac plus bowls of salted…

TERRORISTS IN OSTRAVA
Pierre Daguin recently displayed his collection of art weapons for the first time. His project in terrorism took place in the Ostravian pub/ gallery, Černý Pavouk, where the shadowy atmosphere made it feel like terrorists were just sidling in for a beer. As an artist, Daguin walks the perilous line between the acceptable and unacceptable, the division between art and reality. He manipulates both…

…BUGGER OFF, TV!
“Freedom of speech” is one of those formulations charged with extraordinary power, one phrase within a larger grouping of phrases, all of which — if deftly employed — are capable of striking weapons from hands and arguments from mouths. Yes, freedom of speech, human rights, equality, liberty, fraternity, and — especially in post-communist countries — the free market. Swaying supporters to your…

LA RÉSISTANCE LIVES ON
Demonstrations against the already oldish black and blue coalition in Austria have long abated. The squares in Vienna and other cities are no longer filled with hundreds of thousands of protestors. All that’s left as a testament to the once powerful resistance movement are a few websites on the Internet. Gradually the majority of the population has become reconciled to the fact that government…

NOTES FROM SWITZERLAND
migros museumMuseum für Gegenwartskunst in Zurich was in 1998 renamed “migros museum” after one of the two biggest shopping chains in Switzerland, following Rirkrit Tiravanija’s project to convert it into a supermarket for his exhibition Social Capital. This institution, with a program comparable to that of Le Consortium in Dijon, has recently made public its collections from recent presentations…

SCOTT`S FILM COLUMN
That Frankenstein has a place in the canon of modern thought is unquestionable. Repeated reshaping since its creation by Mary Shelley in 1816 has transformed this tale of “man playing god” into little more than a recurring pop motif — albeit one fraught with racial, sexual and political undertones, and one that invariably attempts to evoke the alienation of modern life. Today, scientific…

IN CECA WE TRUST
"Ten years after the disintegration of former Yugoslavia it seems that the once brotherly republics only have one last thing in common: a drink called Cockta. During our trip to the Balkans, we first came across Cockta in Belgrade, and then we noticed with surprise this local version of a cola appearing in menus in Sarajevo, Makarska Riviera and Ljubljana. The citizens of the newly independent…

INTERVIEW WIHT RAŠA TODOSIJEVIĆ
"What is the situation for young artists?Many young artists have left Serbia. For me it’s OK; I can travel; I have contact with people though I’m completely broke. But it’s worse for the youngest artists who have finished the Academy. They have no money; it’s difficult to travel around; there’s no information, no magazines, no contact with foreign artists and so on. We can expect the effect of…
