The Krasnals in Venedig

Das polnische Kollektiv The Krasnals hat in Venedig den polnischen Pavillon mit einer Kette verschlossen, einen Protest-Banner gehisst und für mehr Liebe demonstriert: “On the third day of the biennale we carried out guerrilla-style action. We went at night to Polish pavilion and closed it with a chain and padlock. We left the information that the only Polish representation at the biennale The Krasnals banner hanging on the main bridge at the Arsenal. It looks really imposing! W hung it without any obstacles, and no one had the idea that it is “unwanted” work of art. And actually it is – it was rejected in Poland by prestigious corrupted circle of independent jury to the Biennale in Venice, and also by additional independent committee of corrupted curators at Art Boom Festival in Cracow. And this comic situation (phone calls) is recorded in audio. Perhaps our work is still hanging at Arsenal – “Pole lifting meteorite from Pope. 21:37″ – Cattelan’s meteorite, that over a decade age symbolically endorsed the authority of the current art establishment in Poland.” Via: Mail, thx!

Ronen Eidelman: “Coming out in Lublin”, Polen

Stencil-Stolpersteine von Ronen Eidelman in Polen: “Around the city of Lublin in Poland, on empty buildings as well as inhabited ones, in the alleys of the old city on streets of the newer parts I posted photos of all kind of Jews who lived on these streets in these houses in between 1926 and 1941. In a modest gesture, I return the people in the photos to the place they where taken. The photos show all kind of Jews. Young, old, modern, religious, political activist, Bundist, Zionist, nihilists, bourgeois, Hasid, yeshiva student, communist, who knows? In some photos the identity is clearly visible, while in others its not so clear. Near the photos appear different questions in polish: Czy zawsze czułeś się inny od swoich przyjaciół? / Have you always felt different from your friends?; Czy w twojej rodzinie jest wielka tajemnica? / Does your family hide a great mystery/secret?; Czy twoja babcia mamrocze w obcym języku przez sen? / Does your grandmother mumble in her sleep in a foreign tongue?; Jakim Żydem jesteś? What kind of Jew are you?” Via: Mail, thanks!

Und hier kommt sie – die erste polnische Pop-Art-Welle: “How many people will have to die, Before we will take a stand, How many children will have to cry, Before we do what we can”: “We (The Krasnals) declare that we are closing phase of Polish sentymental gray art (minimal art, polish art, polish shit art), finish our masochistic national tendency to sink in a depressing gray and open the era of color, joyful, kitsch-pop-art. Let us enjoy consumerism honestly, without stings of remorse , especially in a time of crisis, let the real perfect kitsch host in great hearts of our viewers! With this painting – The Krasnals. Whielki Krasnal “Great Heart of Michael Jackson and Jeff Koons from The Krasnals for children”, 2009 – we open up officially era of kitsch-pop-art in Poland! Via: Mail
