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.

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."

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.

FUCKi̶s̶m̶ Toshain & Ceeh at PROCESS TERMINUS, Art Encounters 2017, Romania

Process terminus starts from the premise that destruction is in itself creativity, and the performative act that implies the physical action necessary for reducing the chosen work to its zero moment is, in fact, constructive. Sandwich assumes the role of an art sanitarium and applies an ecology of ideas. Not only it encourages the destruction of things that are no longer desired, but offers space for new projects, it liberates and creates support for new concepts. Moreover, the project discusses attachment and renouncement to one's own ideas, images, objects.

On the first day of summer, anti-war artists Toshain/ Makowsky/ Ceeh, performed their work at MOTA, ‘Museum on Tour’, Austria. Their performance was titled : МИР : МИРУ : FRIEDE and mirrored the venerable artistic culture contributed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Gustav Klimt, Ludwig Wittgenstein and Falco.

Various international artists, ranging from Austria, Germany, Iran, Turkey, Afghanistan, Bulgaria, USA, South Africa, and Russia were invited to present a slogan on the topic of “world peace”. Each statement was printed onto T-shirts which could only be viewed with night vision devices. We got in contact with these Viennese Austrian actionists in order to get a commentary on their project.

"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...
