Animal Imago is Nimcova's fourth publication, this time around, departing from social and documentary topics, finding herself publishing a book for kids of all ages. The book is dealing with our relationship with animals and nature around us. Animal Imago comprises many approaches to the topic of animals, but also to the medium of photography itself. „In essence, it speaks to the idea that the reality of the world around us is never a given, it is something we have to create“ (Lucia Nimcová).

Jana Farmanová - Under the Sign of Virgo

The book includes the selection of works by contemporary painter Jana Farmanová, divided into sections according to the technique used. There are watercolour paintings and drawings, followed by paintings. The focus is given to her watercolour paintings that have not been presented so far separately in such a large scale. The technique of watercolour painting that requires concentration, focus and speed, form the essence of Farmanová’s further artworks. Such a technique foregrounds the fleeting temporariness of everyday situations that she gradually develops and multiplies in representations and thus homogenises her own iconography. Published on the occasion of the solo exhibition at City Gallery Bratislava 2/5 - 4/5/2015.

Erik Šille

We are delighted to publish Erik Šille´s first catalogue on the occasion of his current exhibition Noir Wellness. Apart from the latest works, you can find a selection of Šille's work after 2006, mapping his specific visual language. Text from Vladimír Beskid in a swift and catchy phrase diagnoses according to him “healthy and stabilised” painting programme of Šille, and offers iconographic keys to his interpretation. Norbert Lacko's text is dedicated to the background of Šille's painting in the context of changes of society and the media since the 90's in former Czechoslovakia, and characterises its fundamental themes.

POINT 0

Freedom square in Bratislava (Slovakia) is one of the last authentic spaces in the centre of the city proposed in socialism era. It stands out with its formal workmanship corresponding with time of its creation/design in 1970s and placing in 1979–80. Its current neglected state and out-of-order monumental fountain refl ect our inability to face our history of the socialism era. Point 0 brings to the square four temporary projects, which pro-actively react to its historical layers. Temporariness, impermanence, openness are terms by whitch we create a space, where on the background of socialist environment we are able to think about ourselves diff erently.

HOME EDITION

Behind the expression Home edition we often find the range of home products, edition is also a common format in the visual arts. The exhibition with this title presents the work of twelve women artists working mainly in new media that deal with the changes of home in the globalisation and transformation period. The book accompanying the exhibition brings together experts from the various fields writing about the diff erent aspects of this transformation. Globalisation marked by the impact of new media radically changed the character of home and proximity reducing it to a life-style product freed from the traditional social relations and exposing it to the neoliberal power of market and mobility. In the visual art fl exibility and mobility appear in the new forms of art as a creative research laboratory or in the works in situ. In art generally, including literature, the nomadic character of home becomes a key issue. However, neoliberal ideas of limitless fl exibility and mobility challenge the life-forms and social communities. It is not just in design or pop-culture that ostalgy appears. Is a post-socialistic experience of home specific? Can it help us in creating the relevant resistance practices? Finally, a panel discussion brought the importance of the transformation of the human and social sciences themselves that fail to recognize these aspects and their opening to the interdisciplinary cooperation including the sphere of visual arts.
