The Myth of the Art World Ivan Mečl | catalogue | 01.01.2008
THE MYTH OF THE ART WORLD
Since the time that art became a field, a system, and enterprise, I keep asking myself, is there a way out of it all? Although the exhibition a Berlin’s Feinkost gallery sported the seemingly scholarly title, "Art World," it was neither an educational exhibit of great masters nor any basis for their inspiration. Today, the sound of the expression itself, "art world," brings to mind the sound of…
We all want an SUV Ivan Mečl | editorial | 01.04.2007
WE ALL WANT AN SUV
The European Union was not created out of regional cultural interest but rather to support free, cross-border investment. If you have a full wallet or a credit card, then you are an investment. This is a given concerning EU residents, and therefore they can travel where they want. We don’t want poor people, and thus there’s an iron curtain at the eastern border of the Union. It’s just they…
INVISIBLE PARLIAMENT Ivan Mečl | interview | 01.04.2007
INVISIBLE PARLIAMENT
"Kein Mensch kapiert, was das Europarlament is" Robert Birnbaum At the beginning of the 1990s, philosopher Mirek Vodrážka indicated in his Lao Tse-inspired texts that the best government is that which citizens do not even know exists. It’s possible that he didn’t realize then how close his prophecies were to becoming true. The European Parliament is truly something about which we know nothing. I…
Return of the art dead Ivan Mečl | editorial | 01.01.2007
RETURN OF THE ART DEAD
Oh you ungrateful readers who have surely come across this piece of paper by chance – this piece of sincerity and, at the same time, the weekend headache of the editors. You surely don’t know that editorials as such were invented in ancient Egypt. The Egyptians used the concept for the texts in which the hieroglyph-producing artisans, faced with the task of completing long and difficult…
The German Issue-Or How We Once Again Didn’t Conquer the West Ivan Mečl | imprints notes | 01.02.2005
THE GERMAN ISSUE-OR HOW WE ONCE AGAIN DIDN’T CONQUER THE WEST
This story is a composition of short extracts from the novel The Fiery Valley of Culture in the Rays of the Dawn Sunlight. The excerpts are linked with the history of this ‘German issue’ of Umělec magazine, which the Divus publishing house began preparing at the start of 2004. At the Luxembourg book fair in March 2005 the publication was evaluated as the stupidest publishers’ act in the history…
Fairy-tale Entangled Marie Hladíková Ivan Mečl | new faces | 01.01.2005
FAIRY-TALE ENTANGLED MARIE HLADÍKOVÁ
In the forest of the winter kingdom there is a princess who brings animals to life out of whitened bones. A monkey pottering around finds a red rose in a snowdrift. The monkey comes within an inch of being hit. Hordes of bloodthirsty angels attack the kingdom. First two princess are maliciously slain. The petrified princess tries to flee but is also hit. Dying in agony she rips her heart out of…

EDITORIAL
Belarus is, along with Luxembourg, one of the least known countries in Europe. Luxembourg is the destination of order-loving retired people from the West, Belarus for Russian ones. Both countries provide the same amount of opportunities to have fun. Belarus is like traveling with a time machine—one that won’t bring you back very far, but you can be sure of going back a good thirty years. The…
Blasphemy / Examples of Anti-Social Phenomena in Art Ivan Mečl | blasphemy | 01.03.2004
BLASPHEMY / EXAMPLES OF ANTI-SOCIAL PHENOMENA IN ART
The only pleasant thing left over from Christianity is the reservation of luxury and democracy. Outside this reservation, there is an exotic world of chaos inhabited by enemies. Probably the best, albeit unintentional caricature of this world concept, is the current film industry. The soiled protagonist, ragged and rain-drenched, is being beaten up by humanoid monsters gone berserk. After he…
Truths that Don’t Hold: A Bitter End for Idealists Under High Imperialism Ivan Mečl | 01.02.2004
TRUTHS THAT DON’T HOLD: A BITTER END FOR IDEALISTS UNDER HIGH IMPERIALISM
On June 21, 2004, 24 hours after the opening of the Eastern Alliance exhibition in Berlin, a work by Ivan Vosecký was removed on the request of a transnational corporation. The lettering, “Kill Them All,” put on the top of the Lichtturm in Oberbaum City, Berlin, was not directed against any group of citizens or other subject. The text-installation was a sequel of a critical social series that the…
