TAKE THE MONEY AND RUN
Tranzit Tranzit is a new activity for the support of contemporary art in central and eastern Europe. The colossus Erste Bank Group has patronage over it and so it is possible to expect that it will not get into the usual financial problems and will be able to accomplish its plan, which has no time frame. And it seems that after a long time we are not talking about a petty project, but a…

ALVAER UNDER AN ARDENT SUN
If we are to believe that the Tranzit prize-winner was to be kept secret until a special announcement, then Norwegian artist Jesper Alvaer, who resides in the Czech Republic, is suspiciously clairvoyant. For on the very day the three-member committee officially crowned him, he gave an accompanying seminar for Tranzit. Not in the muggy auditorium, but directly in the environment he wished to…

ONE RIDE TO ZORILOR
Reportage from a study abroad stay in Romania Where ever you look once, it is nearly the same. Nor can you change much. You once told someone similar stories, or you definitely already heard them somewhere before. This one’s about a little girl who’s always asking questions, but she only receives answers that apparently have nothing to do with the question, at least not in the standard meaning of…

SUMMER ON LOUISE WEISS STREET I LOUISE WEISS
"According to the materials of Linda Fournierwritten by Lenka Kavanová Louise Weiss Street, as a very important platform of contemporary art, has prepared a summer program corresponding to its reputation as the backers of all that is “in” in Paris. The street offers activities joining different fields of art, full of active and creative streams that have spread through the periphery of Paris from…

INSIDE THE BLACK CUBE
“I make technology look ridiculous”Nam June PaikIf you aim your gun at somebody, even if you do it in a playfull manner, you may hurt yourself fatally. When President Bush came to visit Berlin in May 2002, German security forces were on red alert. In Bejing, a young man destroys the windows of his family’s already discarded country house, so his dead relatives’ souls can escape the locus delicti,…

LADY IN RED
This is one of those events about which it is not easy to say: I like it. The “Peace Wall” area, close to Falls Street in Belfast: a system of fences and gates. Fences dividing “problematic neighborhoods” Fences showing that the estimated amount of hatred came up shorter than expected. The original height of the fences was not sufficient and it became necessary to raise the upper edge, to build…

PLEASE, FOLLOW MY JOURNEY ACROSS THE USA
To everyone I haven’t told : I spent the last three months of last year in the USA. Most of this time I spent in Headlands, a former military zone now a “Center of Arts,” as announced by the sign on the roads leading in. Headlands lies among the hills about a 15-minute drive from San Francisco and about a 15- minute walk from the waters of the Pacific. I flew to California because I won the…

WONDERLAND
The project Wunderland offers mines an alternative to disappearing mineral resources. Art is an amalgam that can fill in the worm holes in the earth, as well as the cultural atmosphere of society, whose existence was based on the mining of minerals. The curators are Ulf Robe, David Waliker and Jiří Surůvka, who are also participating as artists. Other exhibitors include Asa Andersson Broms, Peter…

Arndt & Partner In his work for Kassel documenta XI, Thomas Hirschhorn occupied himself with thinking about Georges Battaille; this year he devoted his individual exhibition Doppelgarage at gallery Arndt & Partner to the work of Friedrich Nietzsche. Like in the Battaillian series, besides a hybrid sculpture from recycled material — among which this time his landscapes with giant mushrooms and…

TIP ZCCA THE NOMAD — ARTIST
The more I stop belonging somewhere, the more I realize that I come from somewhere. 14. 6. 2002 (The Book of Sighs)Commodities have found other, faster routs than caravans. One can now only choose to lead a nomadic life for what used to be the side effects: to learn about a place and cultural exchange — the intoxicating perhaps illusory sense that you are part of some movement. But frequently…
