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’s project visually combines a variety of scripts and symbolic systems.

EAGLES & DOVES

What is the form of national identity today? What influence do various symbols exert upon it? Can we positively identify with a nation without nationalistic and xenophobic overlays? The exhibition Eagles & Doves presents works by contemporary Slovak and German artists who respond to these difficult questions with broad perspective, criticism and humour, in a playful and open manner. Contemporary art can be actually a medium of intercultural communication: the encounter, not the clash, of cultures.

Works of Jiří Franta and David Böhm most frequently involve an attempt to find new contexts and meaning shifts in the classical medium of drawing, exploring its physical limits; they may also, convey thoughts on the wider relationship between image and text structure.
