What do artists do in spring?

What do artists do in spring? They go for a walk around the city or take trips to the countryside. And most importantly – they have their eyes open and transform the world around them into a work of art. What is your most favorite activity at this time of the year?

EMÍLIA RIGOVÁ: Čohani z Koni Ajlend. After Bári Raklóri

The social and personal message of the exhibition is clearly readable. Emília Rigová works with a reconstruction of cultural history and with the actuality of her own I; with the erased history of the Roma diaspora and the actual identity of a young woman – intellectual, artist, feminist. The format of the museum of art, adopted for her paradoxical “display” of paintings, encompasses a critical revision of the western history of art and culture.

School programs to the show Power of the Powerless

We will travel 30 years back in time to investigate what happened in former Czechoslovakia in November 1989 and what the situation was like at the SNP Square in Bratislava where Kunsthalle is headquartered. We will learn how artists lived at the time, how people used the keys on the square, and what their common goal was – although they did not know each other personally. The educational programs are held on-demand and adapted to visitor age.

THE POWER OF THE POWERLESS. Political Aspects in Slovak and Czech Art After 1989

November 1989 is an important political turning-point in the Slovak modern history, which has also essentially influenced the status of art in society. The newly-acquired freedom of expression enabled artists not only to present their works in public but also to express critical opinions. On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the November events Kunsthalle Bratislava has prepared The Power of the Powerless, an exhibition focused on art that critically reflects on social problems in the Slovak and Czech context.

PLASTIQUE FANTASTIQUE: The Right Pill

The Right Pill is a project dealing with the uprising nationalism and xenophobia within the western counties as well as with the increasing ignorance in our society. The European history is full of examples of people having to leave their native lands to escape war and misery. Nowadays many immigrants set o on their odyssey until they get stuck. If they are rescued, they mostly get a space blanket as a first aid for immediate thermal relief. Since a few years in Berlin people started to use space blankets in demonstrations to protest against the upcoming fascism.

ORIENT2

Orient2 is a meditation on East European identity. The exhibition finds a unifying aspect in this ambiguous region: a contradictory but also complementary self-underestimation, and a simultaneous arrogance. These are two definitional positions of the region’s wounded identity. Suggesting that a suppressed inferiority complex is a possible reason for the recent upsurge of nationalism and non-democratic tendencies in Eastern Europe, the exhibition asks whether the failure in constituting and performing Eastern European identities, if it were accepted, could not be turned into a virtue.
