Burnt Toast and Broken Satellites: The Art of Jan Jakub Kotík Travis Jeppesen | profile | 01.01.2004
BURNT TOAST AND BROKEN SATELLITES: THE ART OF JAN JAKUB KOTÍK
Like a lot of young artists, 32-year-old Jan Jakub Kotík started out as a musician, playing with a number of indie rock bands in New York after finishing his art studies at the prestigious Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art, where he was a student of Hans Haacke. He actually quit making art altogether for a few years after school, focusing all of his energy on music. Then he…

JÁN MANČUŠKA: FROM THINGS TO THEIR MEANING
For several years now Ján Mančuška has been one of those rare species of artists — visible. This could be credited to his monumental installation projects, which in their variety and complexity demand of the viewer a great degree of awareness and an unusually long period of time to take them in. Consequently they remain seared in the minds of viewers somewhat longer than his four-second puns,…
Units of Speakers Threaten the Peace Ivan Mečl | profile | 01.03.2003
UNITS OF SPEAKERS THREATEN THE PEACE
“And by Wednesday I’ve got to have everything ready. But now if I think about it, there’s still a chance to postpone it, yeah, that would be good, because then I could get done what I haven’t done yet, but then again it’s not like it can wait, and what’s got to get done gets done. But then, what if I just don’t even do it? Anyway, nothing would even happen if I never even did it. Maybe what would…

METROPOLIS OF SILENCE (RYUTA AMAE)
“Synthetic image” is an expression used to describe a painted image numerically processed via informatics. Because it is held in coded form in the memory of the computer — on a magnetic tape or on an optical disc — it is unreadable to the human eye, unless in a projection on a cathode screen, or some other graphic receiver. The so-called pixels, or basic units of color image, carry light…

MARTIN PIAČEK SCANS “KINDERVAJCIA”
"(Kindervajcia are chocolate eggs with toys inside)MARTIN PIAČEK (1972), graduate of Bratislava VŠVU (University of Fine Arts) (studio of professor J. Bartusz 1994-98 and studio of professor J. Jankovič 1998-2000) is the most controversial artist in the Slovak scene. When in January the periodical 3/4Revue published a poster of naked Piaček, pointing to his genitals, he alone purchased a large…
Advice From a Poor Relative David Kulhánek | profile | 01.01.2003
ADVICE FROM A POOR RELATIVE
"Daniel Bozhkov moved to the USA from his native Bulgaria in the early 1990s. Like many other artists from the Eastern Bloc, he took advantage of the open border to go taste what had been forbidden fruit. In many respects even today he is still the same poor relative from the East, an artist with an academic education in the techniques of wall painting who left to see the world. He looks around…
Situations, Circumstances and Particips Vít Havránek | profile | 01.01.2002
SITUATIONS, CIRCUMSTANCES AND PARTICIPS
"“It was at the time when I was working with the phenomena of surface adjustments, transparency, reflection — reflection of a situation within an image and the theme on the margin of the image — that was when I started using stencils, spray paint, varnished surfaces and sheets of plastic.” And so Czech artist Tomáš Vaněk abandoned oils to look for something else, something traditional canvas…
Art Is as Simple as Mooning Anatolij Osmolovskij | profile | 01.04.2001
ART IS AS SIMPLE AS MOONING
"The Russian painters Alexandre Dubosarsky and Vladimir Vinogradov began collaborating in 1994. Before that time Dubosarsky had been known as one of the most active artists in the Tryokhprudny Gallery, which under the supervision of Avdei Ter-Oganian maintained a constant intensity of exhibition activity. Its weekly exhibitions/actions captured the attention of the Moscow art scene for more than…
Cloned Identity Vít Havránek | profile | 01.03.2001
CLONED IDENTITY
"Those familiar with the Czech and Slovak art scenes may recognize the name Stano Filko. And very likely those same people would, without hesitation, and mostly based on his initial oeuvre, place him in the 1960s context – rightfully so. Few recall, however, what exactly it was that this artist did back then, and perhaps only a handful of Slovak art historians know what he`s been working on…
The Realistic Obsessions of a Recluse Lenka Lindaurová | profile | 01.01.2001
THE REALISTIC OBSESSIONS OF A RECLUSE
"Most Czechs are familiar with the ironic drawings that depict on the cover of Respekt the less-than-encouraging phenomena of our post-totalitarian society. This political and cultural weekly was originally the samizdat publication Informační Servis whose contributors included the current politician and Senator Jiří Ruml. Pavel Reisenauer, an artist of brilliant style, is the man behind the tens…
