"I will present my last projects related to activism and happenings. I will explain my strategies concerning how I’m working in public space and site specific."


When Political Art and Activism are sharing the same methods.

"I will present four individuals who are not artists and who came from different countries. Although those individuals are not related to any political organization, they are tying to raise political and social question trough their practice and performance. It is a sociological research, asking what is the intense of those people to act without fear while the media reactions can change their life and what’s the similarity between Political Art and Activism, practices that share the same methods."

visible examines the spatial relationships within which different players, from different cultural backgrounds and with different temperaments, generate meaning and form alliances. The alliance between actors and spectators brings to life the space of action of cultural and social relationships. visible brings to light and gives strength to artistic actions which have a real capacity to experiment and produce visions that can have impact on the social and cultural imagination of our contemporary world.

Introduction by Tamara Moyzes

"He drew antennae onto politicians' posters and underneath he wrote they are liars, thieves, and corrupt whores. One of his colleagues – also a bus driver – turned him in. The judge in his trial was the wife of one of the defamed politicians. He destroyed private property! He paid 15,000 crowns in damages, but refused any additional punishment. “I have nothing to atone for!” Roman Smetana called out in court. He got 100 days. For the film makers, it was not enough to merely document his story – they bought spray paint and hit the streets..."

Hi colleagues, I will not be in Helsinki, but I will follow how things are development... What happened with Tanja Ostojic, does she coming?


Ivor Stodolsky Sat 30 Nov 2013 11:45PM

We are very pleased to welcome Tamara Moyzes on board the group of mentors -- a most wonderful and colourful artists and curator based in Prague. Tanja Ostojic was actually intent on coming, but was caught up in technicalities of all kinds, which may have made her participation a little rushed. So we decided to change plan, and are very happy that Tamara agreed to join.
