PASSPORT


While some speak of power strategies, it appears to us to be much more justified to join those who not only talk about but also create strategies of resistance. And it is for this purpose that we have started up the on-line magazine ART-e-FACT, intending, in the digital age - in which power lies neither in institutions nor on the streets but on the Web, that is, in the communications system - to seek and to encourage possible answers, exchanging ideas about the burning questions of both culture and art, and of society at large.

ART-e-FACT, then, not at all accidentally, is not just a magazine for contemporary art and culture. It is above all an open and public forum for the critical consideration of society, of new practices in art, their interaction with the theory and politics of presentation in an artistic and indeed a non-artistic context. For this reason the first edition of ART-e-FACT was devoted to one of the most acute social problems at the turn of the millennium - in East and West, North and South - illegal migration.

For the moment,
ART-e-FACT is a bilingual magazine, in Croatian and English, but in future we shall try to include the original languages of individual contributions. We plan an update of ART-e-FACT every six months and this will still be focused around a central theme. For the next editions we propose two themes: big stories and micro-utopias, or the politics of presenting art, and this will deal with the institutional and non-institutional forms of presentation, the big biennials and the highly selective exhibitions as well as projects that come into being on the edge, with small teams and low budgets… backing up the live power of the idea, and becoming important catalysts for artistic and critical work in our surroundings.

ART-e-FACT is an online cultural initiative of a group of curators, critics and artists, based in Zagreb, Croatia. It is funded by the Ministry of Culture Zagreb City Office for Cultural Affairs and private sponsors.

The editorial board of ART-e-FACT is not closed in terms of either generations or disciplines, nor does it stem from sectarian or commercial interests. It has been conceived as a dynamic body, which is continuously re-formed and changed, involving various authorial personalities and experiences, while the central theme is given shape by an invited guest editor.
