I'm happy to announce that DIK Fagazine is featured in LIVE ARCHIVE which is a part of the exhibition THE GENERATIONAL: YOUNGER THAN JESUS at New Museum, New York. Organized by freelance critic Brian Sholis, LIVE ARCHIVE will serve as a research platform, discussion venue, and repository of international periodicals, films, and music created by or documenting this generation.
8th April - 5th July 2009
New York, NY 10002
About the LIVE ARCHIVE:
In the events and cultural milestones included in the Live Archive historical timeline represent some of the cultural and world events that influenced the artists featured in "The Generational: Younger Than Jesus", the zines, magazines, and artist's books complied here examples of how this generation has processed these moments. Independent publications like these have proliferated since 1990s, as desktop publishing software and independent distribution networks made making and sharing alternative viewpoints easier in international communities. In these networks, the boundaries between consumption, production, and distribution dissolved. The media savvy is often recognized as defining characteristic of the Millennial Generation, but personal agency and initiative are less often discussed, though are equally important. This installation showcases the diverse visual-culture influences and production of the generation and its overlapping international dialogue. As the curators turned to a network of art-world professionals to recommend artists for inclusion in "Younger Than Jesus" so this collection of publications, all released in the last few years, was organized through the counsel of a handful colleagues and friends around the world.

Until 26th of April you can visit a really nice exhibition featuring my work. Young artist Jan Szewczyk created the show in which his role as an exhibition curator is ambiguous (he appears in other artists works as a model). Check for more www.janszewczyk.com
Janek will appear as a main figure in my next solo show in May, so don't miss that.
