In the past few years graphic novels have attracted more and more attention both in the field of literature and the visual arts. Not only do they allow for an alternative perspective on the complexities of everyday life, but because of their distinct use of two media - image and text - they also suggest how memories of the past can find new forms of expression despite their inherent blanksRead More

Confronting the Balkans: Post-Socialism, Post-Modernism and Contemporary Art Practice in South Eastern Europe since 1968. Maria Todorova’s Imagining the Balkans (OUP, 1997) sought to unpick the implications of the word Balkans, understanding and negating its toxic connotations. Whilst this canonical text has gained traction in Slavonic and Eastern European studies, the implications of the book for how art from the Balkan region can be understood, and discussed, have yet to be worked through.

Low budget and highly efficient artistic interventions in public space – that is the idea behind the project, which is presented in the ICA-Sofia Gallery. Five young artists from Bulgaria are showing photographic, video and sound documentation of their interventions in the urban space of the cities of Sofia and Dobrich from the summer of 2011. Amusing, ironic, critical, nostalgic, and poetic – these artistic interventions are concentrating on the dysfunctional aspects of the 'wild' neoliberal space that we inhabit during the last 20 years. They are asking the question: is there space left for the individual human being with his/her everyday life joys and concerns?

In 2007, Christa Frieda Vogel visited Istanbul for the first time. She was immediately fascinated by the city at the Bosphorus. It was her ambition to portray the city from an insider perspective, which led her to let Istanbul’s artists lead her to capture the city through their eyes. From this thought follows the concept to portray both, the individual artists and the spots that best represent their personal perception of Istanbul.

Marko Stojanović from Belgrade presented his latest multimedia exhibion Edukacija at the Center for Urban Culture Kino Siska in Ljubljana. The work ironically entitled Edukacija / Education is based conceptually on the phenomenon of a new reading of the world of art in the sense of status-defining or a simulation of serious and devoted culture exploration. Displaying the scenes from Serbian TV shows and series that in their set feature artworks of world renown, the author explores the function of art in the context of mass media.

Greek artist Panos Sklavenitis who produced the composition (and the idea) together with Manolis Anastasakos and Kretsis Crew (who painted the mural) have created the mural No Signal in the streets of Athens, just a few blocks from the Greek Parliament. Of this street art, he says: ‘The sign No Signal interests me for a number of reasons. It declares and cancels at the same time the lack of signal in Greece. And the analogies with the current socio-political situation of the country are more than obvious’.
