The project “Transparent Borders” includes the works by eight artists from different countries with different cultural and social background, united by one important feature – the ability to make the borders that we usually deliberately overlook visible and tangible. Seemingly invisible due to the modern technologies, the increasing speed of communication, social networks and the constant flow of images, these barriers and constraints have a significant influence over the daily life of a society, an individual and his interaction with the surrounding physical reality.
(…) The radical representation of this conflict is enhanced in the “FUCKi̶s̶m̶” manifesto by Anna Ceeh and Iv Toshain – a sincere call to reject all the different brands, tags, and autonyms and to initiate independent artistic activities outside the existing institutional rules and procedures.
Despite the apparent differences in individual artistic practices, the participants of this project are united by the desire to study the limits of the chosen formats and media. To make up for the constraints of the format of an exhibition itself, which no longer corresponds to a specific spatial experience, a temporary website will be launched to make the exhibition available to a wider audience.
7 – 11.03.2017, Centre “Red” (Bersenevsky lane 5, bld. 3, 3rd floor)
