Dear Rainer Ganahl,
Hi. My name is Jan ┼man. I don't think we ever met, even though I heard a
lot about you from Victor Misiano in Moscow in 95. Yesterday Elein Fleiss
sent me an e-mail with your text on Alexander Brener and Flash art. I was
really happy to read it, since it is - as far as I know - the first attempt
to come to terms with what is behind not only Alexander Brener but has a
more general implication on that generation of artists from the "former
east". I am part of the case as curator with Victor Misiano of the Interpol
project here in Stockholm... that I guess you know of.
I am just on my way to Trondheim to work at the academy there for a couple
of days, and will return to you later, but just a couple of things:
I am part of the V2 e-mail-syndicate, initiated by Andreas Brockman. It is
mainly a directed towards information between the so called former eastern
and western europe. I have an on-going conversation with the irwin-group
from slovenia there, regarding the same issues (I responded to their
defense letter for Alexander Brener). I'd like to put out your article for
the syndicate, since it is a very relevant comment and something that has
not been said there before. Inform me if you think it is ok.
I hope to finish a text on Interpol, Brener, Kulik and the so called
communication gap next week, that will also be sent out on the V2
Do you know that there will be more coming up: in Vienna (I met Joseph
Bakstein last week who is curating a show at the Wiener Seccesion with all
our friends...), and in Venice (Victor with Kulik)? There will be a lot of
discussion about these issues during the coming weeks - and that why I
think it would be interesting to send out your text.
Looking forward to hear from you.
all the best, jan ňman
