Paris is elsewhere Anaid Demir | q & a | 01.01.2003
PARIS IS ELSEWHERE
Cécile Paris opens her worlds to us through her seemingly simple photographs and video works.She is called Paris after the city, but this does not mean that she confines herself to its borders. She loves movement, learning about the country, storytelling, and she enjoys giving others the chance to travel. Each picture opens up a spiritual perspective. She makes photos as she breathes. In the…
Vietcong versus Dodge Ball Jiří Ptáček | q & a | 01.01.2003
VIETCONG VERSUS DODGE BALL
"The Brno region advance design firm Pterodon has been active since 1998. But the groundwork was laid by Jarek Kolář and Petr Vlček earlier, in 1993-1994, when they created the adventure game The Secret of Donkey Island, one of the very first Czech games. It was distributed exclusively by mail, delivered in simple plastic bags. It is certainly one of the precursors of more advanced works in Czech…

INTERPRETERS OF A STATE IN TIME (INTERVIEW WITH DUŠAN MANDIČ AND ROMAN URANJEK: MEMBERS OF IRWIN)
Neue Slowenische Kunst was formed in the early 1980s in Slovenia as an umbrella organization of separate but thematically related artistic groups, including the music group Laibach, the theater group Scipion Nasice Sisters, the design group New Collectivism, which caused a scandal when they remade a Nazi poster that subsequently won a national competition, and the visual arts group Irwin, which…

BIG HOPE (INTERVIEW WITH MIKLOS ERHARDT AND DOMINIC HISLOP)
Could you please speak a little about the meaning of your project in Torino, why you wanted to do it, to what ends, and why in an art gallery? M.E., D.H.: We first went to Corso Brescia 14, Torino, around six months ago while we were working on a previous project. We were immediately impressed by this colorful space, its rich variety of objects, paintings, posters and stencils that covered its…

INTERVIEW WITH VLADIMÍR SKREPL
Be an Artist I. Do you enjoy your art or do you suffer over it? It’s connected, isn’t it? If there wasn’t pain, there’d be no ecstasy. So a kind of SM? Sure, basically that’s it.How did you come to be an artist? (laughs) That is, if I am actually there… That’s also a question. If I am there.GroupsYou used to played the electric guitar, didn’t you? I started around 12. But that doesn’t mean that I…

JESUS IN VENICE (INTERVIEW WITH RENÉ ROHAN)
"A project by the group Kamera Skura (Martin Červenák, Jiří Maška and René Rohan, est. 1996) from Ostrava, CZ and Slovak artist Erik Binder won the competition for the joint Czech-Slovak pavilion at the Venice Biennale 2003. This is the first time in recent history the jury selected a proposal submitted by artists without representation by a curator. During a day-long session on 26 September 2002…
End of an Era Vladan Šír | q & a | 01.02.2002
END OF AN ERA
"Significantly, one of the first and most important private contemporary art galleries has closed shop just as the political elite that formed post-totalitarian life in the Czech Republic over the past twelve years were voted out of office. On Sunday, June 23, the doors of Prague’s Gallery MXM closed for good. Amid the piles of catalogues and artwork belonging to artists who had just lost the…

WHO`S THE MAN
"RtMark: Interview with Ray Thomas by J. A. Buehler and Denisa KeraHooray! The now nearly mythical corporate pranksters, RtMark, were coming to town, or at least Ray Thomas, their spokesperson, was. It seemed time to finally get some answers (and maybe put a face to) some of the provocative issues these corporate media activists have a knack for raising: this mysterious group has been accused of…
Marginal Differences Lenka Lindaurová | q & a | 01.01.2001
MARGINAL DIFFERENCES
"Michal Koleček established himself in the 1990s as a unique curator for the Emil Filla Gallery in Ústí nad Labem, CZ. As a result of his efforts, many artists from the former Eastern Bloc are not only finding a place in Ústí, but also in Prague.In your work as a curator you mostly focus, as few here do, on post-communist art. How did you first become interested in something so specific? First,…
