2019 lösen FXXINi̶s̶m̶TOSHAIN/ CEEH im„Sacrilegium“ einen neuen subversiven Turn indem sie unter anderem als politische Referenz zu Gräueltaten im Nationalsozialismus aus verbrannten Überresten von 11 Postern mit 11 künstlerischen Botschaften 11 Schminkstifte produzieren und diese symbolisch nach den Künstler_innen der jeweiligen Poster-Kunstwerke benennen. Durch ein Vernichtungsakt der Zerstörung erschaffen aber Iv Toshain und Anna Ceeh wieder etwas Neues.

FXXINi̶s̶m̶ TC “MARK 1” at “MERDELAMERDELAMERDELAMER” curated by Kendell Geers at Mario Mauroner Contemporary Gallery

The performance MARK 1 circles around a pink suite. Made by the Haute-Couture label Jacquemus it is worn by a Ex topless stripper, pacing around the room. On the back of her Suit as well es on the front of her mini skirt two hidden messages become visible and therefore only readable with an infrared night vision device. One part of a slogn is referring to Michelangelo’s iconic Pietà, where Madonna bemoans her son’s deaths, contrasts the second part, that presents a murder weapon acting as a dildo. Anna Ceeh dismantle in her slogan a german word in canon in vulva. The visitor here in the role of a voyeur, becomes part of the artwork and in its participative performance process. Fashion is signifier and medium of communication at the same time. MARK 1 demonstrates its pro-active potential and uses destruction as a form of recreation.

The Art Gorgeous: The coolest art girls in Vienna

If you’re looking for a reason to fuel your girl power fire, look no further. Iv Toshain and Anna Ceeh spearhead a feminist art collective in Vienna called FXXXi̶s̶m̶ , if you can believe it or not! They’re worth keeping an eye on, as in recent years they’ve caused a storm with poster projects, protests, performances, photo-based work and beyond (one project includes a protest at Mainfesta in Italy last fall). Check out their manifesto on their website and on Instagram to see what they’ve got cooking up next (Toshain will be showing at the Vienna Contemporary art fair this fall with One Monev Gallery).

FUCKi̶s̶m̶TC Manifesto at MANIFESTA 12, Palermo, Italy

The latest illegal FUCKi̶s̶m̶TC poster action has just taken place at MANIFESTA 12 in Palermo. The art duo Toshain and Ceeh plastered posters of their MANIFESTO around the city, criticising well-established art formats of representation, stylized as omnipresent, whose democratic power has become illusory, with nothing to gain except death itself.
They assimilated their performance into one of MANIFESTA 12's main topics called "co-existence."

Provocation in the heart of Moscow Art as the new power

МИР- МИРУ- FRIEDE at the Red Square, Moscow, Russia, March 31 2018

On the eve of the celebration of the anniversary of the Second World War, one of the biggest holidays in Russia, the activists from the Austrian art-label XXXXi̶s̶m̶ TOSHAIN/ MAKOWSKY/ CEEH publish the information about the performance they have recently executed right on the Red Square - they stood with provocative slogans for peace! Ten people dressed in civilian clothes with armored vests arranged in a row just a few minutes before being arrested. On the vests with invisible paint, specified later by the organizers as a special military paint used only in the United States, artists from various conflict spots around the world share their messages for peace. The hidden texts can only be seen through a dedicated infrared device. Among them are slogans like “GO BOMB YOURSELF” by the Afghanistan artist Ammanulah Mojadidi, "HE KILLS ME, HE KILLS ME NOT" by Parastou Forouhar from Iran, whose parents were killed by the regime, the Russian artist and activist persecuted and living in the United States fighting for the rights of homosexuals, Slava Mogutin with "LOST BOYS", the German artist Olaf Nicolai and his "KEINE HEIMAT (I have no Homeland)", the american artist Lawrence Weiner "HERE TODAY, HERE TOMORROW" and others.
