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!

Update: Aljoscha


31.05-05.06.2011, Venice: “Thirsty bioism creature at the fountain of Rialto-market, rising up its water content, maintaining plasma volume, keeping thermal regulation upright, dissolving, metabolizing. After water drinking, the pet was glad to kiss the door of european center for living technology and participate in funking around with highly adorable La Tunca Art Foundation, what caused an immediate expropriation of it by François Pinault Foundation.


After a couple of days we are so far to see our pet and going to visit the mighty animal euthanasia organization. yes, the thirsty child is alive, but new owner has no idea about desires and needs of living artworks. please send it to our headquarters: PO Box 1300, MI6 cultural department, London SE1 1BD, UK.

Neue Arbeiten von Aljoscha in Venedig und Göttingen. Via: Mail, thx!

Raphael Sbrzesny: “Enter German Pavilion”, 2009

Raphael schreibt mir: “Ich bin Student an der Staatlichen Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Stuttgart. Derzeit habe ich mein Studium bei Prof. Rainer Ganahl und Prof. Christian Jankowski aufgenommen. Ich habe letzten Monat eine illegale Performance in Venedig auf der Biennale gemacht und bin derzeit auf der Suche nach Möglichkeiten die Aktion einer größeren Öffentlichkeit zugänglich zu machen. Vielleicht haben Sie Interesse darüber zu berichten: Zu sehen ist die Aktion unter entergermanpavilion.de.” Ja, klar, danke! Ich habe doch eine Schwäche für illegale Performances – und Luftmatratzen!
