They have written, designed and directed two Rose d’Or nominated series of their own Modern Toss (6 x 24 minute episode) cartoon sketch show, broadcast on UK ‘s Channel 4 in 2006 and 2008.

ABOVE Marisol Rodríguez | interview | 01.01.2009
ABOVE
ABOVE is a native from California of unknown age and identity. He travels almost without a break around the world, like a postmodern beatnik who boasts about having almost anything, and whose work tries to reach everybody with such a kind of undefined art, that we are unable to name it. He’s not a graffiti artist and he never calls himself an artist nor a designer, but we can say that ABOVE is…
Wicked / Interview with Jim Hollands Ivan Mečl | interview | 01.01.2008
WICKED / INTERVIEW WITH JIM HOLLANDS
“A person must shake someone’s hand three times while gazing intently into their eyes. That’s the key to memorizing their name with certainty. It is in this way that I’ve remembered the names of 5,000 people who have been to the Horse Hospital,” Jim Hollands told me. Hollands is an experimental filmmaker, musician and curator. In his childhood, he suffered through tough social situations and…
INTERVIEW WITH ISRAEL MORA Ruth Estévez | interview | 01.04.2007
INTERVIEW WITH ISRAEL MORA
In the last years, Israel Mora’s artistic endeavors— mostly events and performances—have straddled the line between reality and simulacrum, both in form and content. Notably influenced by Mexico City (where he lives), Israel’s work functions like a representation of an underground society or counter-culture. Using his body as a site from which to work, Israel’s staged situations take on…
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…
An Announced Protest Interview the with Rafani group Lenka Vítková | interview | 01.03.2007
AN ANNOUNCED PROTEST INTERVIEW THE WITH RAFANI GROUP
Creation—a relentless search for border points, situations—in time traces the space between them, indicating a certain shape. We perceive it in the same way as we finger the shape of a face in darkness. The only difference is that we don’t know which side we are on – inside or on the outside, we cannot tell whether we are touching our own face or someone else’s. We don’t even know if all the…

Frog steak Petra Vargová | interview | 01.01.2007
FROG STEAK
Tissue art is the art of manipulating growing tissue into statues or the form of other objects. The Australian group SymbioticA (www.symbiotica.uwa.edu.au) started these experiments using animal tissue. They let the tissue grow into the forms of half-alive dolls or the ear of the famous artist Stelarc, or they created bird wings from the tissue of pigs. In their project Disembodied Cuisine, Catts…
Cyril Lepetit - About Frredom, the Titanic and Respectful Identity Jan Suk | interview | 01.03.2006
CYRIL LEPETIT - ABOUT FRREDOM, THE TITANIC AND RESPECTFUL IDENTITY
Cyril Lepetit – le petit – petty, minute, tiny, itsy-bitsy, minor, flimsy, piffling You all know the feeling when after a day's march or a lengthy bike ride you stop to rest, squat to explore the ground, when suddenly a gust of wind passes through your sweaty private parts. Or in the evening, lying in a tub filled to the top you contemplate over gently rippling water surface reflecting the…
We Hope That the Chinese Will Forgive Us Jiří Ptáček | interview | 01.03.2006
WE HOPE THAT THE CHINESE WILL FORGIVE US
We met the young director Lucie Králová to discuss her new documentary Ztracená dovolená (Lost Vacation). Before we switched on the recorder she apologized for not being able to speak freely about the film, since she wants the film to surprise the viewers. But the structure of the interview was clear: we were going to speak about the discovery of 22 sets of negatives documenting a journey of a…
