Operation Žofín, or: A Czech Voina Ivan Mečl | editorial | 01.02.2011
OPERATION ŽOFÍN, OR: A CZECH VOINA
“The state will not help slackers and delinquents who abuse government handouts,” said the Prime Minister. If his position was not filled by an idiot without talent or feeling, he might have said: “We will help those who have been pushed to the margins of society by twelve years of irresponsible politics, who have been pushed to the self-destructive use of already low welfare payments, or who…
Playing at economics. Let’s Burn the King of Carnival! Ivan Mečl | editorial | 01.01.2011
PLAYING AT ECONOMICS. LET’S BURN THE KING OF CARNIVAL!
God died years ago. The Germans spent a long time working on that. Today, human rule is biting the dust as well – through international cooperation and exchange. It’s no longer safe in the distant headquarters of the leaders of the world economy, nor in the hideaways of the smallest fish in the pond. Everybody is weighed down with a sense of ruin. The filth is piled up against the gates of the…

HAPPY HOUSE
When we dream of changing the world it is commonly supposed to be idealism. The label “romantic idealism” usually implies the utmost disapproval. Particularly refined minds shape their idealistic views into teachings and programmes, provoking revolutions. But when a revolution fails to occur, the concepts, stubbornly focusing on the search for the way to change and improve the lives of the…
A reevaluation of reevaluations Palo Fabuš | editorial | 01.01.2010
A REEVALUATION OF REEVALUATIONS
We have just had the end of a decade, with all the requisite media retrospectives and reevaluations. Although the tendency to review and analyze has been ascribed to the entire modern era, it would seem that there has been an upsurge in looking back into the past. It has been said that the 20th century came to a close with the events of September 11, but we still seem to be coming to terms with…

UMĚLEC IN AUSTRIA
It was chance that led me to the editorship of this journal; and then, the fact that I had grown up in one particular small town in Austria, one that before many years was known only for its high church-tower and later for one Herr Schicklgruber, somehow fitted into the liking of oblique facts which is characteristic for Umelec. And so the publisher forced me to work on the task of an Austrian…
About Carrot, War and Anarchy or Carthago est delenda, Extended Editorial in three parts Alena Boika | editorial | 01.01.2009
ABOUT CARROT, WAR AND ANARCHY OR CARTHAGO EST DELENDA, EXTENDED EDITORIAL IN THREE PARTS
1. This text was written on the way to Luxembourg, in the four consecutive trains required to get from Prague to Colophon, the International Magazine Symposium. This event had looked extremely attractive to me till the very last moment. However, on the evening before departure I was amazed to learn that a “flash-pass,” giving the participants the right to be just that, would cost 100 euros. Of…
Yes or No Ivan Mečl | editorial | 01.02.2008
YES OR NO
The exhibit by the activist group, Guma Guar, at the Prague Municipal Gallery was damaged allegedly by a group of unknown iconoclasts, whose subsequent closing is accompanied by conspiracy theories. After the institution’s curator decided to prematurely shut the exhibit down without consulting the artists, the Czech art scene reacted in a rather atypical manner. Artists, whose exhibits had been…

EDITORIAL
We work like old people, yet we behave like children more than ever before. We surround ourselves with mobile miracles, and therefore we have no idea what we are dealing with. We try to live in safety, and yet we do not know what it means to be safe. Many of us have lost time, but acquired “things.” We love “things” and their names sound nice to us. We love them, but they do not love us. We are…
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…

EDITORIAL
Mexico entered into NAFTA, the North American Free Trade Agreement, in the early 1990s with dragging heels and a history of suspicion, while the United States hailed the questionable arrangement as a universal victory for freedom and equality, as it always does for anything that mainly benefits the United States of America. Now there is equal regret on both sides of the fence, and jingoistic…
