XI Media Forum — The official program of the 32 Moscow International Cinema Festival 19-23 June 2010  Moscow International Film Festival This year’s program promises to be especially vivid and intense. We have invited artists from the US, Western, Eastern and Central Europe, the classics of video art and ultramodern media-artists, the founders of the interactive art for the Internet, and those who particularly appreciate the live exchanges with the public. This year, the MediaForum is planning to give the Moscow audience a most thorough introduction to the oeuvre of Gary Hill — one of the most renowned American video artists, one of the pillars who shaped the video-art of today as we know it. His most recent work will be exhibited in GMG Gallery. Classic videos of this artist will be shown at Garage Center for Contemporary Culture where his workshop will also take place. Trendy net artists JODI are responsible for Media Forum parties, and if you know something about net.art, explanation of who they are just isn’t necessary. This time around, they will arrange a live performance at Solyanka club. Also, the best works selections from Ars Electronica and Transmediale festivals as well as Japan Media Art Festival will be shown in the club format. One of the main events of this year — the Transitland retrospective of video art from Central and Eastern Europe spanning from the fall of the Berlin Wall to the present day. There will be events in various formats for this project. For those who like to browse leisurely through artworks returning to see missed parts or favorites again, there will be an exhibition at the Moscow Museum of Modern Art. Those who prefer movie theatres will be able to attend screenings at the Garage Center for Contemporary Culture. The whole program is divided into three thematic video selections, which will be shown separately. Those who appreciate personal conversations with the artists will enjoy the workshops of Anri Sala, Milica Tomic and Egon Bunne. The panel discussion will bring together critics and art historians, who won’t miss the opportunity to express their opinions about video art after the fall of the Berlin Wall. However, those members of our audience who would like to get a thorough impression of the project, shouldn’t miss any of these events: different video works will be shown at each venue.

Manufacturing Today | Trondheim bi-annual, 7 April – 16 May 2010, KULTURBUNKER DORA, Trondheim, Sweden. ‘Manufacturing Today’ has been conceived as a five year research project and exhibition based in Norway but created, this time, in collaboration between art academies in Norway, Finland, Lithuania and the UK. This research will be publicly manifested in formal workshop sessions, a symposium, a publication, an exhibition and a series of commissions, all in an effort to address the question of how art and art education might resist instrumentalisation by the art market on one hand and the streamlining efforts of the state on the other. To resist this instrumentalisation means to support the idea of a potential within the institution of art for the imagination of an alternative social order. To focus on education is to engage with real political questions about how institutions shape society.

Agents & Provocateurs, HMKV(HartWare MedienKunstVerein), May 15 – July 18, 2010, Dortmund, Germany. The research-based art project Agents & Provocateurs surveys certain forms of confrontation: agency and provocation, both understood as dissenting artistic attitudes. Starting out from the counter-cultural scenes of state-socialist East Central Europe, the project asks what sort of critical potential the oppositional artistic positions of the time really had. Was “oppositional” a self chosen stance, or did the narrow confines of a repressive regime constitute dissident thinkers so? Did artists engage with various aspects of social reality under an autocratic political rule, or were they rather concerned over the infringements of their artistic and intellectual freedom? /Julius von Bismarck (D) Scott Blake (USA) Ondrej Brody (CZ) Jan Budaj (SK) Budapest Reconstruction (H) Ildiko Enyedi (H) Ion Grigorescu (RO) Andris Grinbergs (LV) Igor Grubic (HR) Tibor Hajas (H) Hungarian Two-tailed Dog Party IRWIN (SLO) Künstler informieren Politiker (D) Istvan Kantor (H/CND) Judit Kele (H/F) Andreja Kuluncic (HR) Ivank Lazki (AR) Zbignew Libera (PL) New Collectivism (SLO) Orange Alternative (PL) Tanja Ostojic (RS/D) Ewa Partum (PL/D) Tamas St. Auby (H) Janos Sugar (H) The Yes Men (USA) Milica Tomic (RS) U.R.A.

Quartet–Four Biennials Reflected in Prints, International Centre of Graphic Arts (MGLC), 21 January – 21 March 2010, Ljubljana, SLO Exhibition presents print portfolios from four biennials (Hamburg 1985, Sydney 1990, Istanbul 1995, and Cetinje 2005) containing more than eighty graphic works by sixty well-known and established artists from all over the world; thus it mirrors the development of art in the past twenty years. These print portfolios represent a unique artistic and art-historical achievement, for they show the development of printmaking techniques and their involvement in the context of contemporary art. They present artists from different generations and different geographical settings; in this way they tear down borders and encourage further communication and creative possibilities – which is also what reproduced, multiplied, and distributed art generally does.
