skarbek. reprise at cca warsaw

"What is it that

constantly changes its shape

but retains the same internal order?

What is it

for which there is no place on earth,

and that has no definite borders?

What is it

that affects other things,

and at the same time permits other things to affect it?

What is it

that is always available,

yet still remains unnoticed?

What is it

that is made up of many parts

that at the same time can be parts of something completely different?

What is it

half of which looks very familiar,

and the other half of which resembles nothing you know?

What is it

that changes into something else at the precise moment you learn

of its existence?"


Come and find out! Skarbek by Antje Majewski, with libretto by Sebastian Cichocki and music by Katrin Vellrath. April 29, 2016 (Friday), 5.30 – 8.30 p.m., CCA Ujazdowski Castle, Warsaw

Flo Kasearu’s House Museum

Tracking down artist-run museums we recently ended up at Flo Kasearu’s House Museum in Tallinn, Estonia. A gorgeous wooden house is dedicated to the oeuvre of Flo Kasearu, who also lives there, curate the displays and gives tours. The house includes dozens of works by Flo eg. a hole in the attic from where you can look at things outside, neatly appropriated as art. And there is a slide instead of a staircase. And a sauna.

self-organised (makinguse#15)

Self-Organised, edited by Stine Hebert and Anne Szefer Karlsen, is the third book in the Occasional Table series. "This new anthology of accounts from the frontline includes contributions by artist practitioners as well as their institutional counterparts that provide a fascinating account of the art world as a matrix of positions where the balance of power and productivity constantly shifts. Artists, curators and critics discuss empirical and theoretical approaches from Europe, Africa and South and North America on how self-organisation today oscillates between the self and the group, self-imposed bureaucratisation and flexibility, aestheticisation and activism.”
