ArtConcept presents program of multimedia exhibitions under the title All History is Contemporary History.

 

Being interdisciplinary, the program aims to investigate the intersections of history, science, technical progress on the territory of contemporary art.

 

Special focus is on the opposition cultural vs. natural and its ramifications on the human condition nowadays. The ensuing crisis of modern man will be the point of departure for a few explorations into controversies of classical and industrial societies, a rupture with tradition, a correlation of degeneration and sociopolitical decay.

 

Science-based approach, visual data and theoretical underpinnings of innovative research are integral to multimedia exhibits, comprising video art, documentary and experimental cinema, installations, animation, as well as classical medium of drawing.

 

Politics as being, political interaction of people, alienation of the individual from society and in relation to labor cannot but form a central axis for contemporary art expressions. This can be done through synergetic perspective drawn upon vestiges and witnesses from the fields of history, evolution, culture, scientific theory and practice.

Kempinski Hotel, St.Moritz

 

Private viewing of new works by Dimitri Horta, followed by dinner at Segantini House on the occasion of White Turf Race – the most exciting winter horse race annually taking place in Engadine

 

A bold aesthetics of Dimitri Horta coupled with quaint animal subjects poses a question of modern day mythology – a worldview formed by contemporary societal dynamics, but still rooted in traditional, even archaic thinking and imagination. The realm of weird fantasies and inner workings of the unconscious is unfolding, as the artist imbues beasts and birds with ambiguous references and meanings. Horta cannot escape the affinities with Swiss-born Dada ethos and surrealism tradition, disclosing the unstable and fragile human condition.
