LUCIA NIMCOVA

UNOFFICIAL (2007-2010)

Since 2000 Lucia Nimcova was researching different approaches to reality in Eastern Europe. She wanted to show how the past influences the present. The history of Eastern Europe is changing depending on political structures. In her view, communism has never finished; it has just transformed into something else. “Normalization” was an ideological programme of social and political integration in Czechoslovakia after 1968. During the normalization period, people were taught to be passive. She couldn’t stay without an opinion. She wanted to visualize this process of transformation. In order to do that, she combined archival photographs and films she found with contemporary images and videos.

ARTSAVA - Inside the Mirror (Andrei Tarkovsky)

Mosfilm is a film studio, which is often described as the largest and oldest in Russia and in Europe. Its output includes most of the more widely-acclaimed Soviet films, ranging from works by Tarkovsky and Eisenstein (commonly considered the greatest Soviet directors), to Red Westerns, to the Akira Kurosawa co-production (Dersu Uzala) and the epic - War and Peace.


The Mirror (Russian: Зеркало, Zerkalo; known in the UK as Mirror, Mosfilm,1974) is a Russian film directed by Andrei Tarkovsky. It is loosely autobiographical, blending childhood memories, newsreel footage and poems by his father Arseny Tarkovsky. The film features Margarita Terekhova, Ignat Daniltsev, Tarkovsky's wife Larisa Tarkovskaya, Alla Demidova and Anatoli Solonitsyn.

 

The Mirror has no apparent plot. Instead it rhythmically combines contemporary scenes with childhood memories and newsreel footage. At various points in the film poems by Tarkovsky's father are recited. The loose flow of visually oneiric images has been compared to the stream of consciousness technique in literature. Its complex yet simultaneously simple structure makes The Mirror one of Tarkovsky's most difficult films, as well as his most personal. Today The Mirror is widely regarded as a masterpiece and one of Tarkovsky's best works.

 

The concept of The Mirror dates as far back as 1964. Over the years Tarkovsky wrote several screenplay variants, at time working together with Aleksandr Misharin. This script was initially not approved by the film committee of Goskino, and only after several years of waiting Tarkovsky would be allowed to realize The Mirror. At various times the script was known under different names, most notably Confession and A White, White Day. The completed film was initially rejected by Goskino, and after some delay only given a limited release in the Soviet Union.

Viva - Tinguely, un portrait

Viva - Tinguely, un portrait | Who said ART? Quién dijo ARTE? | Scoop.it

Jean Tinguely, son œuvre et ses passions pour les automobiles et les motos de course. L'émission Viva nous donne l'occasion de faire connaissance de cet artiste fribourgeois et de le suivre pour son exposition à Venise.

 

---------

 

Jean Tinguely is remembered for his entertaining mechanical sculptures, but there was much more to him than ingenious contraptions made from junk. A new exhibition highlights his role as one of the most original artists of his time.

 

For over 30 years, the Swiss artist was an influential figure in the European avant-garde. Tinguely@Tinguely, on at Basel’s Museum Tinguely, also looks at his role as an agitator and a poet through the revamping of a collection started 16 year ago, and to which major pieces and biographical elements have been added over time.
