LOOPHOLE TO THE UNIVERSE

DIVUS LONDON | en

We are sorry to bother. You should really care about the credit crunch and downturn. But please use your last moments to glance at this show before you’re melted into a human vortex. Maybe then the rulers of the universe will forgive and you will benefit from last given chance.

Group exhibition arranged by

IFIDOTA (Institute for Intergalactic Dissemination of The Arts)

and

DIVUS (Dry Intelligence Versus University Satanists)

 

Would you mind if they steal the sky from you? Do you still care what’s up there? No. You probably prefer to peer downwards upon goods and sales. Maybe there are too many parties, or perhaps you waste your nights staring at your personal computer. Ah, it makes your life very complicated; you could drown in those glowing blue seas. There are few opportunities to flee from this trap. But there still is a chance. We’d like you to know that there remain a few loopholes left to see the skyto the universe. And if you still remember who you did meet up there in your dreams, if your mind still has some conception about these impossible remote regions - then feel free to join us.“

My Career in Poetry or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Institution My Career in Poetry or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Institution
An American poet was invited to the White House in order to read his controversial plagiarized poetry. All tricked out and ready to do it his way, he comes to the “scandalous” realization that nothing bothers anyone anymore, and instead of banging your head against the wall it is better to build you own walls or at least little fences.
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…
Acts, Misdemeanors and the Thoughts of the Persian King Medimon Acts, Misdemeanors and the Thoughts of the Persian King Medimon
There is nothing that has not already been done in culture, squeezed or pulled inside out, blown to dust. Classical culture today is made by scum. Those working in the fine arts who make paintings are called artists. Otherwise in the backwaters and marshlands the rest of the artists are lost in search of new and ever surprising methods. They must be earthbound, casual, political, managerial,…

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…

Aš menininkas — Aš save myliu Vincent van Gogh in one letter to his brother described a café as a place where one could easily go insane. The café in the Center for Contemporary Art (CAC) in Vilnius is such a place. Insider connoisseurs of the local scene consider it “very bohemian” and, indeed, in contrast to traditionally lackluster and overpriced eateries in museums, the atmosphere in the CAC…
