Of Meese and the Germans Spunk Seipel | review | 01.01.2007
OF MEESE AND THE GERMANS
Jonathan Meese is currently Germany’s most controversial artist. His exhibition Mama Johnny, held in the Deichtorhallen gallery in Hamburg, was the exhibition event of the year. An artist of just 36 years of age, he was given the chance to fill more than a hundred square meters of space. He sold piles of junk to the interested public, labelling them as part of a new, intellectual world system:…
A Somnambulist Paparazzo Pavel Vančát | review | 01.01.2007
A SOMNAMBULIST PAPARAZZO
A poem with this ending was once published by Markéta Othová in the forerunner to Umělec, a more warped and chaotic publication that she had helped to found and create. From this point of view, Markéta Othová is, in her mid- to -late thirties, a matador. At the same time, we can find an indication of how the graceful elegance of her photos is grounded in cunningly naive roots, how it is necessary…
Beauty on the Bottom, in Bytom. ExGirls’ Bad News William Hollister | review | 01.03.2006
BEAUTY ON THE BOTTOM, IN BYTOM. EXGIRLS’ BAD NEWS
Curators Magdalena Ujma and Joanna Zielińska have picked up Helen of Troy’s tale where she left it. Carefully crafted for Bytom – an industrial town in Polish Silesia surrounded by the steep slag-hills of discontinued coal-mines – this exhibition seeks to reveal a sublime nuance that lurks within contemporary ideas of beauty, and is visible in news-media imagery. Last year, the two curators – who…

COUPLES
Ateliér Josefa Sudka / Josef Sudek Studio, January 6 – February 5, 2006 The corner of the mouth is slightly higher; next time, a bit lower. Lips are tight; next time, loose. Eyebrows are frowning; sometimes they’re not. Occasionally they’re colored and shaven. These are some of the minimalist elements in the photographic self-portraits of Václav Stratil. But before we are drawn to these…
Contacts of the Third Kind Denisa Kera | review | 01.02.2006
CONTACTS OF THE THIRD KIND
Kontakt, Mumok, Vienna, March 17 – May 21, 2006 The Kontakt exhibition in Vienna shows a cross-section of middle-European art from the 1960s to the 1990s from the collection of the Erste Bank Group, which was founded within their Tranzit project. It shows works that were unable encounter each other because of the communist regimes, but yes still somehow “communicate” and follow common…
