EMÍLIA RIGOVÁ: Čohaňi 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.

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.

ZORKA LEDNÁROVÁ: Perspective

Zorka Lednárová’s project visually combines a variety of scripts and symbolic systems. Using a cartographic language, she shows the world as a single living organism transmuted by the mental activity of its inhabitants, which develops freely outside of state borders and often despite the political arrangements of countries.
