Mladen Stilinovic, Roman Ondak: A SHOW ABOUT NOTHING

A Show About Nothing

an idea of Francesco Bonami, curated by Stefano Collicelli Cagol and produced by BY ART MATTERS curatorial team

In one of the most iconic moments of the TV sit-com Seinfield, two of the characters are sitting in a diner, thinking about potential topics for a show to propose to a TV company. They come up with the idea of doing a show about nothing, with no narrative, no plot, but focusing only on people talking and making jokes. An ingenuous self-reflective moment, where the characters of the sit-com conflate themselves with the actual actors while inventing the jokes for the episode, this scene it is not just a great piece of comedy but, also, shows the potential of a meta-narrative. It is able to reveal the behind-the-scenes secrets and moments of a TV format: it makes you laugh but, also, is a way to talk about the rules of entertainment.

Mladen Stilinović: A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man “Films, Photographs, and Collages” 1973–1978

Július Koller Society, Bratislava, Slowakei, 01.10.2021—13.02.2022

Mladen Stilinović: A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man “Films, Photographs, and Collages” 1973–1978

Mladen Stilinović, Oko 2 + 2 + 2 / 2 (Eye 2 + 2 + 2 / 2), 1973, felt-tip-pen and printed paper on paper.

The young man will gaze at the table thoughtfully, resting his head on his hand and flicking the ash off his cigarette for as long as the swirling lines on the surface of the photograph last. The lines shoot out and pulsate like fireworks between entropy and order, balancing between psychic automatism and critical examination, oscillating between the chimeras of mass culture and the heightened senses of the poet. The first solo exhibition in Bratislava by one of the crucial figures of European art – Mladen Stilinović introduces his early works. At the time, it was not yet quite clear what direction he would take. Even so, it contains everything Stilinović would later so aptly express in his mature oeuvre. The driving force of these early works is in poetry and film, which enter into the explosively spontaneous visuality of his photomontages and collages on the one hand and the analytic precision of the photographic [...]

Mladen Stilinovic, Július Koller: Enjoy - The mumok Collection in Change

mumok, Vienna, Austria, 19.06.2021—18.04.2022

Mladen Stilinovic, Július Koller: Enjoy - The mumok Collection in Change

Mladen Stilinovic, White Absence, 1990-1995, Installation, 8 parts

Ten years after joining the museum, Karola Kraus is organizing with her team a collection presentation that includes central donations and acquisitions from the past decade. The selected works range from classical modernism to the present day, following the path of the collection’s development. Twenty years after mumok opened in Vienna’s MuseumsQuartier, and forty years after the founding of the Austrian Ludwig Foundation, this exhibition is both a survey of the past and a glimpse ahead to the future. As the past years are reviewed, new perspectives are proposed as basis for the museum’s future collection and exhibition activities. The collection exhibition Enjoy sets out to convey the intertwining of past and present as a living process of continual reassessment and revaluation that reflects everchanging socio-political, socio-cultural, and philosophical developments and discourses. The main themes cut across time and media: the depiction of [...]
