Fokus Grupa, Elvis Krstulović, Iva Kovač, et alJoško Pajer
,
Fokus Grupa is an artist collective based in Rijeka, Croatia, founded by Iva Kovač and Elvis Krstulović in 2009. Borrowing their name from a contested research method, used equally for independent research as for PR purposes, they point to the social, economical and political frames of the art field. Their practice is collaborative and interdisciplinary, and it includes art, design and curating. Artistic strategies they use take political shape, without becoming a representational form of ‘political art’. Fokus Grupa concentrates on the relations between art and its public manifestations, in terms of working culture, aesthetics, and social and economic exchange values. Their work investigates ...

Andrea Fraser, Dolores Acebal, David Armengol, et alLúa Coderch, André Chêdas, Lucrecia Dalt, Ricardo Duque, Sonia Fernández Pan, Jaume Ferrete, Antonio Gagliano, [13 More...]
Through her performances, Andrea Fraser (Billings, Montana, 1965) examines the social, economic, and emotional structures of the art world. She turns her critical, self-reflexive, and somewhat ironic gaze on different agents in the art field and analyses their roles, motivations, and contradictions. Fraser’s career has been linked to institutional critique from the outset, and her influences include psychoanalysis, feminism, and the theories of Pierre Bourdieu. Appropriation, site specific pieces, performance and body work are some of the strategies Fraser uses to expose the incongruities of the art world while also harnessing its full critical and political potential. SON[I]A talks to Andrea ...

Dora Garcia, Dolores Acebal, David Armengol, et alLúa Coderch, André Chêdas, Lucrecia Dalt, Ricardo Duque, Sonia Fernández Pan, Jaume Ferrete, Antonio Gagliano, [13 More...]
Drawing on a series of performative, editorial, theatrical, and filmic resources, Dora García (Valladolid, 1965) generates events that question and probe the world around us. Participants in her works tend to get caught up in dynamics of enthusiasm and suspicion, in which any circumstance, no matter how abstract or microscopic, is raw material susceptible to becoming literature. In her work, reality is always haunted by the existence of a new story that can potentially supplant it. Her historical research on psychoanalysis and anti-psychiatry explores the inner vocabulary of dreams, and the figures of madness and delirium hover as elements of ...

In ‘The Anabasis of May and Fusako Shigenobu, Masao Adachi, and 27 Years Without Images’ Baudelaire creates a transmedia piece (a film shot on Super 8, but also photographs and printed documents) that brings to light the personal stories, the political intrigue and the life journeys of these three iconic figures linked to the Japanese Red Army in the course of almost three decades living underground in Lebanon. Like other works by Baudelaire, this piece emphasises multiple tensions, between yesterday and today, between the real and the fictitious, the absent and the present, over-documentation and oblivion, actual events and memory. ...

To broaden the discussion of 21st century consciousness and aesthetic production, Silvershed contacted three artists: Matt Mullican, John McCracken, and Peter Halley. As a selection, these three artists address cultural shifts in the 70s and 80s with early digital inquiries in their work–demonstrating a broadening range of aesthetics, application, and production. The artists’ conversations have been fruitful in many ways and expanded the scope of our initial questions, engendering renewed ways to look and to think about their work today.

Where 5 began with a proposition that Tyler Coburn write a speculative press release for an exhibition he would have enjoyed – but one that nevertheless did not exist. Where took the theme of Coburn’s imagined exhibition and produced three experiments. For the first, Where opened its shipping container “to anyone, to do anything” from September 12 – October 12, 2014. For the second, Where initiated a handwritten letter campaign to established commercial galleries. For the third, Where organized a dinner at one such gallery, David Lewis, entirely comprised of edible parasites. The theme and speculations proposed in Coburn’s press release were ...
