57th Biennale di Venezia: “МИР – МИРУ – FRIEDE” – Guerrilla Performance

MOTA – MUSEUM ON TOUR AUSTRIA, developed as a hybrid between museum and artwork, presents “МИР – МИРУ – FRIEDE” in cooperation with the art-label XXXXi̶s̶m̶TOSHAIN/ MAKOWSKY/ CEEH (Sofia – Vienna – St. Petersburg).
The collective has set themselves the goal of sending out a message of peace to the world and has invited a number of international artists to create a slogan - among them Lawrence Weiner, Olaf Nicolai, Parastou Forouhar and Kendell Geers.

FUCKi̶s̶m̶ Toshain/ Ceeh @ TRANSPARENT BORDERS, Centre “Red”, Moscow

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.

MOTA – MUSEUM ON TOUR AUSTRIA presents XXXXi̶s̶m̶ Toshain / Makowsky / Ceeh Performance in Vienna

MOTA - Museum On Tour Austria, developed as a hybrid between museum and art work, is showing "МИР - МИРУ - FRIEDE": a performance series at the city public spaces by the art label XXXXi̶s̶m̶ TMC.
Focusing on the ongoing International crises, shifts in religious and political power as well as armed confrontations, the collective has set themselves the goal of sending out a message of peace to the world. The messages are written on T-shirts worn by soldiers and can only be seen with a night-vision device. Experience it - how the moving immaterial art space appears!

FXXXXi̶s̶m̶ TOSHAIN / CEEH at More than SHE, Dotyk, Minsk / Belarus

"Першая спроба пазнаёміць беларусаў з праектам FEMINi̶s̶m̶TC: ПРЕЙЪР скончылася трагічна. На трэці дзень постэры з выказваннямі сусветна вядомых мастакоў былі выдаленыя з выставы Anatomia (у ЦСИ на Някрасава), пасля таго, як дух клясыка сацрэалізма Міхася Савіцкага пачаў чыніць розныя тэхнічныя і псіхічныя перашкоды знаходжанню працаў у ягоным былым лаундж-руме, дзе ён любіў аддавацца медытацыі пасля кантактаў з брутальнымі беларускімі рэаліямі. Ёсць надзея, што з другой спробы наша арт-абшчэсьцьвеннасць зацэніць пасланне замежных зорак у поўным аб’ёме і ў больш спрыяльных варунках...

“ART VENDETTA” VERSUS 6 th MOSCOW BIENNALE CURATOR

"Art is Personal. We made this Guerrilla Art / Vendetta Performance to question curatorial self-representations, institutional power and hierarchies; extending the established status quo of artistic concept and space."

FXXXXi̶s̶m̶ TOSHAIN / CEEH at Center for Contemporary Arts, Minsk / Belarus

"...За скандальнасць гэтым разам адказвае аўстрыйска-расейска-баўгарскі арт-лэйбл FXXXi̶s̶m̶TC. Ягоныя завадатары Anna Ceeh і Iv Toshain абзываюць сябе post-socialist post activist modular perpetual motion machine і працуюць у сфэрах дыскурса і пэрформанса на мяжы поп-культурнай семантыкі, тэорыі мастацтва, актывізма і contemporary art. Яны крытыкуюць усе ідэалёгіі (-ізмы), прапагандуюць мультыгендарны падыход (няма мужчынскага і жаночага мастацтва, ёсць гуд арт і бэд арт) і заклікаюць вызваліць фемінізм з карсэта бінарнасцяў і супрацьпастаўленняў. У свае правакацыйныя вылазкі з арт-прасторы ў рэальнасць яны ўцягнулі Марыну Абрамовіч, VALIE EXPORT, Slava Mogutin, Olaf Nicolai ды іншых зорак сусветнага мастацтва. Наведвальнікі выставы ў Мінску змогуць безнаказана вынесці з залі газеты з маніхвестам і модным постэрам гэных арт-хуліганак і дакументацыяй іхніх бясчынстваў на вуліцах Вены і іншых мястэчак Еўропы."

FXXXi̶s̶m̶ TOSHAIN / CEEH: РИТУАЛ – URBAN DIARY – Vienna Extended – Charim Galerie Wien 23.04.-30.06.

FUCKi̶s̶m̶ Toshain / Ceeh counteract the branding concept of the Kunsthalle, as their emblem logo bears all areas of the Viennese art world, with a counter- branding: Nicolaus Schafhausen (curator and director of Kunsthalle Vienna) is stamped, or at least his portrait poster, which now bear the stamp of FXXXi̶s̶m̶ in an edition of 750 pieces. This gesture is only a part of the FXXX performative installation, questioning curatorial self-representation and power,
It refers to a change in the art field, which in the last 15 years has led to a production division of the curatorial, with their own training courses, institutionalized form, media and discussion forums.

The complex relationship between artistic and curatorial autonomy, questions of power and access to resources, as the practices of marketing and branding, which now both sides- artists and curators concern, must be renegotiated."

RED, MY COLOUR IS RED, April 3 @ National Center for Contemporary Arts Moscow, RU

EUREKA Carte Blanche to KENDELL GEERS/ Galerist, Istanbul

Your mind finds inspiration as your body creates, generating works of art that are given limits by your galleries. Your work embodies the limits of your perceptions dictated by moral, spiritual, physical, economic, cultural and political constraints. In the battleground of your body expressing itself as an artist, how would you give expression to an ecstatic state of being that runs naked down the street with the words “Eureka” on your lips ?

The exhibition that I would like to invite you to be part of is conceived as a protest song in which the body is the celebrated.
