Lukáš Karbus Jiří Ptáček | new faces | 01.01.2008
LUKÁŠ KARBUS
When Lukáš Karbus left Martin Mainer’s studio at the Brno school for the arts, he returned to the town of Pihel, near Česka Lípa in the Sudetenland. He set up shop, became a partner in a saw mill and currently plants Japanese poplar trees whose fast growing wood serves as biomass. He paints in the evening when he can, after work. There would be no reason to imagine Karbus as a northern Bohemian…
Pash* Jiří Ptáček | new faces | 01.02.2007
PASH*
To write about Pash* is to write about a generation, born in the mid-80s, that has only recently begun to change the shape in the Czech Republic of what this magazine calls visual culture. Pash* was born in Prague in 1984, and studies photography at the FAMU (Film and Television Academy of Prague). He rarely works in film, preferring instead to create street art, his series of colorful posters…
Daniela Baráčková Jiří Ptáček | new faces | 01.02.2007
DANIELA BARÁČKOVÁ
At the end of last year Daniela Baráčková fell prey to the cultural gutter press when her former teacher, Jiří David, pointed out similarities between her video and another project, entitled Replaced, by Barbora Klímová. Baráčková’s work is a record of a busy New York street on which Baráčková is seen stretching out her arms—just like the artist Jiří Kovanda three decades earlier in Prague. This…
We Hope That the Chinese Will Forgive Us Jiří Ptáček | interview | 01.03.2006
WE HOPE THAT THE CHINESE WILL FORGIVE US
We met the young director Lucie Králová to discuss her new documentary Ztracená dovolená (Lost Vacation). Before we switched on the recorder she apologized for not being able to speak freely about the film, since she wants the film to surprise the viewers. But the structure of the interview was clear: we were going to speak about the discovery of 22 sets of negatives documenting a journey of a…
Petra Herotová Jiří Ptáček | reviews | 01.03.2006
PETRA HEROTOVÁ
Petra Herotová was born in 1980 and since 2004 has been studying in the intermedia and conceptual studio of Jiří David at Prague’s VŠUP. Trying to define the key subejcts of Petra’s work, we can use words like “communication,” “family,” “identity.” But that is so general that we should add at least three more concrete indications: “screwdriver,” “smilies” and “daddy.” What comes out of this? …
Pavel Švec Jiří Ptáček | new faces | 01.03.2006
PAVEL ŠVEC
“When the medicine helps, we don’t ask where it comes from.” (Pavel Ryška in a critique of Pavel Švec’s Life on Other Planets) I would say, “When the medicine doesn’t help, we have another prescribed.” And we can never admit to ourselves our own mortality. We try to keep ourselves alive as long as possible, although we don’t know why; we think of long life as if it was some sort of important…

COPYRIGHT
The festival of contemporary art Tina B. was supposed to be the most prestigious action of this summer. Visiting it I recalled my old wish to award anti-prizes in visual art just like in any other field. Tina B. would be in the running for the Fiasco of the Year. Odd and even years Tina B. is a fictitious artist and an acronym at the same time: This Is Not Another Biennale. In the Czech…

Jiří Ptáček | editorial | 01.03.2006
BOLTS FROM THE BLUE
We have been working the whole summer on this issue of the magazine. The contributors were leaving on vacation, apologized for unkept deadlines, sometimes they even broke their hand, so they couldn’t finish the text at all. The new graphic designer got pregnant right after getting the job (congratulations) and one contributor gave birth to a baby on the day she should have handed in her article …
Václav Girsa Jiří Ptáček | new faces | 01.02.2006
VÁCLAV GIRSA
If you are looking for a painter whose enthusiasm you can trust, don’t miss Václav Girsa. His pictures are diverse, brutal and funny. Girsa doesn’t limit himself; he paints landscapes, cottages, volcanic eruptions, metal rock groups, abstractions and cats. He does not fear impasto or brushstrokes, and is generally unkind in his treatment of canvas. He manages to thwart accusations of too much…
