I LOVE 69 POPGEJÚ
If the Red Hot Chilli Peppers shocked their fans, at the time, by wearing socks on their private parts, then i love 69 popgejů hypnotizes them with leopard print hand-made underwear (with a large stuffed phallus hanging out) while writhing their bodies and wearing tennis shoes on their head. Three of the four members of this performance group met in Valašské Meziříčí, Moravia. Currently they live…

Filip Nerad Jiří Ptáček | new faces | 01.01.2006
FILIP NERAD
At the beginning of the century a small circle of artists from Brno’s FaVU (Faculty of Fine Arts), who investigate the language of animated films, converged around filmmaker Filip Cenek. Typical for this creator were short-term alliances between a few artists, rearranging of characters and various language of animation narrativity, a reminiscence to a generation’s experience with fairytale…
Dominik Lang Jiří Ptáček | new faces | 01.01.2006
DOMINIK LANG
Dominik Lang (1980) lives in Prague, studies at the studio of Jiří Příhoda at the Academy of Visual Arts (AVU) situated in Prague. In general, Lang is interested in “solutions.” He watches how things are being done, what is considered as given (“we accept it and don’t think about it anymore”), and suggests changes and different solutions. Sometimes he strives for a visible change, sometimes for a…
A Conference Jiří Ptáček | review | 01.01.2006
A CONFERENCE
Johanna Billing – Alan Currall, Display + Tranzit, Prague, October 11 to 30, 2005 In October 2005, Czech Umělec editor Jiří Ptáček received an invitation to a conference. The subject of the conference wasn’t on the invitation, but as it was organized by his good friend, and since in this business that’s what counts, Ptáček decided to attend. At the right time, he arrived at the right place, in…
The Oldest Fire In Poland Jiří Ptáček | poland | 01.03.2005
THE OLDEST FIRE IN POLAND
When I first noticed the plastic digital watch made by Janek Simon, a Polish artist, I assumed he had some particular reason for not simply buying one. But Simon, who was born in 1977, grew up in real socialism. Perhaps he couldn’t get over a childhood trauma. Digital watches used to be cult objects for Poles, Czechoslovaks and the Soviets. The watches were deified as the ultimate unattainable…

Go Only Halfway? At Least Then You Are Halfway There. Jiří Ptáček | info | 01.03.2005
GO ONLY HALFWAY? AT LEAST THEN YOU ARE HALFWAY THERE.
To any passer-by one Friday morning last May, the smoke billowing over the roof of Prague’s House at the Stone Bell could have seemed rather frightening. But this gothic monument was not aflame; the smoke was an experiment by Jana Kalinová to create an artificial cloud there, while worried firemen stood by. White gas wafted through a transparent pipe upwards reaching a set of balloons,…
This Will Always Be Beautiful Jiří Ptáček | review | 01.03.2005
THIS WILL ALWAYS BE BEAUTIFUL
