territory








сегодня в день международной солидарности трудящихся плавил лбом ледяную свастику из своей крови на стене биржи труда в веймаре. обошлось без ментов.

наше тело - территория государственной собственности, территория капитала, на которой правящей элиты выстраивают свои механизмы.
через отчуждение, возьникающее при продаже рабочей силы, система замораживает наше тело, превращая нас в статический объект, неспособный к творческой страсти, легко поддающийся деформированию/манипулированию в соответствии с потребностями.
наше тело должно стать территорией пламенного столкновение с системой, с государством. мы должны расхуячить лед, в который мы скованны.


Am 1. Mai zum Internationalen Tag der Arbeiterbewegung hat Bionihil ein Hakenkreuz aus seinem gefrorenem Blut an der Wand des Arbeitsamts mit seiner Stirn geschmolzen.

Die Aktion nimmt Bezug auf eine Performance von Fluxuskünstler Wolf Vostell - er und seine Partnerin haben einen Eiswürfel zwischen ihren Stirnen geschmolzen.

Unser Körper ist das Territorium des staatlichen Besitzes und Territorium des Kapitals, auf dem herrschende Eliten ihre Regelwerke aufbauen.
Das System friert durch Entfremdung beim Arbeitskraftverkauf unsere Körper zu einem statischen Objekt ein, das für schöpferische Leidenschaft unfähig geworden ist, und das entsprechend des Bedarfs leicht zu deformieren/manipulieren ist.
Unser Körper soll das Territorium des brennenden Zusammenstoßes mit dem System werden. Wir sollten das Eis in dem wir eingeschloßen sind zerschmelzen.

Полина Заславская и еще одна акция солидарности с Олегом






Мы, группа Верхотура и друзья и Арт-Группа Аффинити, хотим

поддержать художника, Олега Мавроматти, который оказался в тяжелой ситуации.

Сейчас он находится в Болгарии и ждет экстрадиции в Россию, где на него было

заведено уголовное дело в связи с проведенной художественной акцией «Не верь

глазам» в 2000 году. В России он обвиняется по статье 282 Уголовного Кодекса в

разжигании межнациональной и межрелигиозной розни. Сейчас у Олега просрочен Российский

паспорт и заканчивается Болгарский вид на жительство. На родине его ждет только

тюрьма. Мы просим генерального консула Болгарии, господина Казакова, проявить

человечность и не идти на поводу у Российских властей. Мы просим предоставить

Олегу Мавроматти политическое убежище и тем самым освободить его от политических

 преследований. Художник обязан быть свободным! Свободу Мавроматти!

Crucifixion Artist Flees Russia, Fears Interpol, Jail as Censorship Surges

Oleg Mavromatti

“Russian prison means death for people like me,” said Oleg Mavromatti, a filmmaker and performance artist.

Mavromatti, 45, fled to Bulgaria in 2000 after the Russian Orthodox Church complained about a movie he was shooting in which he is crucified. He was accused of violating a criminal code that includes inciting religious hatred and denigrating the church, an offense punishable by as much as five years in prison.

Last month, the Russian consulate in Sofia refused to renew Mavromatti’s passport.

“They gave me two options,” he said in a telephone interview from his apartment in Sofia. “Either I voluntarily fly to Moscow and stand trial or Interpol comes after me.”

Mavromatti’s case highlights what human-rights activists see as a return to Soviet-style censorship, with a resurgent Russian Orthodox Church playing a central role and the Kremlin supporting it.

Last month, four artworks by Avdei Ter-Oganian were temporarily withheld by Russian authorities from an exhibition at the Louvre Museum in Paris because, a Culture Ministry official said, they incited religious hatred. This summer, two prominent art curators were found guilty of the same crime because several works in the “Forbidden Art” exhibition they organized in 2007 were considered offensive, including a depiction of a Christ figure with a Mickey Mouse head.

“Some people may find a particular work of art offensive or disagreeable, however this cannot be the basis for restricting the right to freedom of expression,” said Denis Krivosheev, a researcher on Russia at Amnesty International in London.

Recession, Iraq War

Mavromatti has spent the past decade in Sofia and New York where he regularly showed at Exit Art, a nonprofit exhibition space. In his performance-art pieces, his subjects have included the financial crisis and the war in Iraq.

After Russian authorities released Ter-Oganian’s work, the Prague-based artist announced he wouldn’t participate in the Louvre show unless Mavromatti’s passport is renewed.

In New York, Mavromatti’s backers include U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Exit Art director Jeanette Ingberman, art dealer Ronald Feldman and Mark Rothko’s son Christopher Rothko. All of them have written letters to immigration officials in Bulgaria and to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in support of Mavromatti’s application for the humanitarian-refugee status he would need to enter another country.

After learning on Sept. 11 that Mavromatti’s passport wasn’t renewed, Ingberman called Feldman, who had campaigned on behalf of Soviet dissidents in the 1970s and 1980s.

“It’s a dangerous sign that democracy in Russia is struggling,” Feldman said. He and Ingberman buttonholed Gillibrand at a reception and told the senator about Mavromatti’s plight.

“Time is running out,” said Feldman. “We want to forestall his deportation. We don’t want to fight this battle in Russia.”
