OIL AND COURAGE OR ONLY TO THE EDGE OF THE 50TH BIENNIAL FESTIVAL OF CONTEMPORARY ART IN VENICE
"“The moon shines nowhere as sweetly and as dreamily as it does in Venice.”Jan NerudaThe Venice Biennial is still the only exhibition of contemporary world art in which — unlike Sao Paolo, Istanbul, Quangzhu or Lyon and Valencia — Czech art critics not only regularly take part, but to which they regularly (albeit with doubtful success) refer.The Venice Biennial is accessible for us not only…

TERROR = DÉCOR: ART NOW
Despite the fact that the Slovenian exposition Terror = décor: art now in Venice cam away with no prizes, it ranks alongside some of the most interesting projects in this summer’s Biennale. Žiga Kariž works with the theme of the commodification of violence in his project, with the viewpoint that artwork comes back to the viewer. The equation Terror = décor contains different possible readings for…
