"The drive from Germany along highway E-55 is pleasant and peaceful thanks to the well-defined hard shoulder and the locals maintaining the speed limit. In the evening, when the streets are deserted, it’s possible to witness the stereotypical German penchant for accuracy and kitsch. The Czech-German border is, for the time being, chaotic, possibly due to its recent reconstruction and relocation.…

DEPORTATION CLASS
At a time when both the German socialist government and even the conservative opposition are calling for the acceptance of immigrants into the country in an effort to avoid economic decline, refugees are still being deported by the federal police forces. The expulsion of refugees brings border issues to the heart of country as refugees are often shipped out through border checkpoints located at…

SAVAGES, BARBARIANS AND CIVILIZED MEN
"“Soon the people will decide that they want their land to be part of today’s monstrous world, and once that happens, it will all be over. As soon as you have that desire, you are infected with the deadly virus, and you begin to show symptoms of the disease. You live in terms of time and money, and you think in terms of society and progress. Then all that is left is for you to kill the other…

PRAGUE STREET CLASHES AS A MAJOR WORK OF ART
"On 26 September 2000, several thousands demonstrators realized a truly magnificent work of art in Prague—a demonstration that lead to street clashes with the police and a number of broken windows. Long live artistic production! We however wish to postulate that this event, pulsating like the heart of a sperm whale aboard a whaler, was not part of the slowly expiring 20th century. It was already…

WHO, HOW AND FOR WHOM (152 YEARS LATER)
"The initial idea that triggered the concept for the exhibition What, How and for Whom at the Croatian Association of Artists in Zagreb, Croatia, 16 June 2000 dates back to 1998 when the activist organization and publishing house Bastard/Arkzin republished The Communist Manifesto to mark its 150th anniversary. Only at first glance does this decision seem like a nostalgic gesture completely devoid…

EXPOSITION 2000
I. Time and Space“Welcome to Hannover, the city of trade fairs” read a sign greeting visitors at the main train station in Hannover in 1981. It is common knowledge here that the Hannover trade fair was conceived in response to the first largest trade fair in Germany ending up after World War II in Leipzig, in the territory of the (socialist) German Democratic Republic. Concurrently, in 1981, the…

THE GREAT GRAFFITI SELL-OFF
Arriving in New York used to feel like falling through a trap door into a dirty little secret. Ubiquitous filth and ecstatic energy, New York outlived the rest of America in extremes of high and low cramped magically into a tight little island bursting at the seams. It was more permissive than the puritanical hinterlands—here there was danger, balanced out by excitement, mess, offset by splendor,…

ON BEATS, RHYMES, PRAGUE WALLS AND LIFE
"Hip hop is an autonomous subculture with its own image, growing as a means of expression in ghettos. The music itself (whose roots go back to Jamaica’s toasters, or MCs, in the 1960s, James Brown and George Clinton; Afrika Bambaata claims he was influenced by Kraftwerk’s electronic music) is only one part of an extended subculture sharing space with graffiti art, breakdance, and rap. Like punk,…

ARCHI-TAG-TURA: THE SYNERGY OF ARCHITECTURE & GRAFFITI
"“Reusing existing stuff is a rich and varied practice. Bach reused Vivaldi; Busoni reused Bach; Tinguely reused garbage; countless people reused found film footage. Each to different purposes and with different effects. Sometimes it’s an homage, sometimes an attempt at destruction, sometimes a breathing of life, sometimes a critique, sometimes an exploration, sometimes an evening of scores,…

THE CREATOR GAME
Cyberspace is formed by a hallucination of data received from an assortment of equipment connected to the computer network. It is a world created by the increasingly improved mathematical abilities of machines, whose computational operations are getting faster and faster. It is a world created by the exponentially growing information base, to which all of the entities connected into the…
