READING ROOM IN DIVUS LONDON

Without the least scent of desperation DIVUS London opens it's doors as a reading room and bookshop this holiday season. Come to sunny Deptford, sit on the artificial grass and have a flick through the archive of DIVUS publications. (Though be aware that a bent spine means you own us monetary compensation).

Recent DIVUS releases include Simon Barkers' PUNK'S DEAD; an exclusive historical and cultural document featuring candid photographs of seminal protagonists of the era such as Jordan, Siouxsie Sioux and Adam & the Ants.  Also in stock we have AMERICA: LIVE/DIE; the double book boxed set of paintings and cartoons by Mike Diana, the first ever artist to receive a criminal conviction for obscenity for his artwork in the United States of America.

DIVUS London also houses an archive of the international art journal Umelec; covering Central European, Eastern European, and Balkan Art since the 90’s, and now offering a hard hitting political perspective on the global art scene.

Our bookshop holds a selection of artists' publications for sale (Buy! Buy! Buy!), though is also an archive of artists’ printed material as a public library; a resource to be utilised by the local community or anyone who happens to want to get in out of the cold.

In addition to the reading room DIVUS London hosts a group exhibition of all the artists that have exhibited with DIVUS this year... so if it's photographs of 70's punks or paintings of dismembered penises you're after come on down to DIVUS London, Enclave 5, 50 Resolution Way, SE8 4AL.

The Top 10 Czech Artists from the 1990s The Top 10 Czech Artists from the 1990s
The editors of Umělec have decided to come up with a list of ten artists who, in our opinion, were of crucial importance for the Czech art scene in the 1990s. After long debate and the setting of criteria, we arrived at a list of names we consider significant for the local context, for the presentation of Czech art outside the country and especially for the future of art. Our criteria did not…

An unsuccessful co-production An unsuccessful co-production
If you know your way around, you might discover that every month and maybe even every week you stand the chance to receive money for your cultural project. Successful applicants have enough money, average applicants have enough to keep their mouths shut, and the unsuccessful ones are kept in check by the chance that they might get lucky in the future. One natural result has been the emergence of…

S.d.Ch, Solitaires and Periphery Culture (a generation born around 1970)
Josef Jindrák
Who is S.d.Ch? A person of many interests, active in various fields—literature, theater—known for his comics and collages in the art field. A poet and playwright foremost. A loner by nature and determination, his work doesn’t meet the current trends. He always puts forth personal enunciation, although its inner structure can get very complicated. It’s pleasant that he is a normal person and a…

We are the fifth global party! Pítr Dragota and Viki Shock, Fragmenty geniality / Fragments of Charisma, May and June 1997. When Viki came to visit, it was only to show me some drawings and collages. It was only as an afterthought that he showed me the Czech samizdat publication from the late 1990s, THC Review. When he saw how it fascinated me, he panicked and insisted that THAT creation is…

Who’s Afraid of Motherhood?
Zuzana Štefková
Expanding the definition of “mother” is also a space for reducing pressure and for potential liberation.1 Carol Stabile The year was 2003, and in the deep forests of Lapák in the Kladno area, a woman in the later phase of pregnancy stopped along the path. As part of the “Artists in the Woods” exhibit, passers-by could catch a glimpse of her round belly, which she exposed especially for them in…
