street action in Moscow, January 2011

Элеонор была на прошлогодней акции 19 января и задокументировала происходившее у памятника Грибоедову. Стоит напомнить, в 20-ти градусный мороз техника часто капризничает и поначалу художница забраковала те снимки, которые пригодились нам в этом году. По прошествии года художница вспомнила о своем архиве, услышав призыв к участию в выставке «Искусство против нацизма». В размытых нечетких изображениях можно представить себе светлячков, которых Пьер-Паоло Пазолини считал метафорой несконяаемого процесса борьбы и сопротивления. Пазолини – один из крупнейших итальянских режиссеров и поэтов с ясной антифашистской позицией. Элеонор использовала фрагменты стихотворения Пазолини о светлячках и свою документацию акции 19 января 2009 года

January 19 Committee: Art Against Nazism (brief report)
Dear friends!
During the week-term anti-Nazism street-art action your stickers and posters have appeared in the cars, passageways, and escalators of the Moscow metro right up until January 19, 2011. The amount of propagated items was about 8.000 stickers and posters. The media coverage of the exhibition was unexpectedly wide. We got several major weekly national magazines including Expert and Kommersant Vlast. Also there was a good number of radio shows, including ones at Echo of Moscow, Radio Liberty, Russkaya Sluzhba Novostey and many others. Now we can say that our exhibition was visible and our campaign helped to attend at list 1000 of citizens for the march. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hRZSz0PIJ54). The news about the march headed the list of major news at the Yandex.ru home page (the most popular web site in Russia). According to preliminary calculations marches on Jan. 19 were held in more than 35 cities of Russia and abroad.
Here you may find almost the full list of artworks from this show. Sorry to say: some got temporarily offline by technical reasons and will be loaded back ASAP. (http://19jan.ru/iskusstvo-protiv-natsizma-stikeryi.html) Many of artworks are explained in Russian.
As expected our call for contributions reached the goal and many artists and activists have helped to enlarge the list of participants by contributing their own pieces. There were people from Tambov, Samara, Riga, Paris, St.-Petersburg, etc.
All artworks were online during campaign and many of them was printed by activists and brought to demos even far from Moscow. (For instance in Kyiv, see pics attached)
Here you may also find a documentation of the action in Moscow metro. (http://www.antifa.ru/5473.html)
Here is a sort of interview with me (in Russian), but if you scroll directly to the 3rd minute you will see also a video documentation taken. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J57iRwFb1gw)
So, dear comrades, on behalf of the January 19 Committee I thank all the participants and hope that we will continue our common struggle against Nazism worldwide.

Eléonore de Montesquiou 'Naine' video still


January 5 - February 11, 2011
University of Florida,

University Gallery presents "Precarious Status", a digital media installation of work by French-Estonian, German and French artists Eléonore de Montesquiou, Julika Rudelius and Anne-Marie Schneider. Each of these artists explores international culture in a stylistically different way.

The videos they produce are socially and politically powerful, dealing with global feminism through issues of censorship, voyeurism and identity. The vehicles of expression in the actual videos include printmaking and drawing, interviews and film produced in cities and obscure natural environments, through a broad range of perspectives. This exhibition is organized by Irish independent curator Clodagh Keogh.
The work of these artists has been exhibited throughout the international art scene in biennales, and prestigious galleries from Russia to Taiwan to Madrid. Well-known in Europe, these three women artists have just begun to be an important part of the art scene in the United States. Julika Rudelius’ most recent video “One of Us” was made in Florida last summer. Anne-Marie Schneider was recently nominated for the prestigious Marcel Duchamp Prize juried in Paris in the fall of 2010.

performance/lecture de Romana Schmalisch
suivi d'une programmation de films

Eléonore de Montesquiou et Romana Schmalisch se sont intéressées à des usines à Moscou qui mêlent activité industrielle (production de papier) et artistique. A partir de films documentaires et d’images, elles questionnent l’idée même de la représentation de ces usines, de leur histoire, de leurs productions et de leur reconversion. Entre cinéma et production, Eléonore de Montesquiou et Romana Schmalisch s’interrogent sur la transformation de ces lieux industriels en lieux culturels pour répondre à un climat de désorganisation économique actuelle.


SURVIVAL KIT, Riga, Latvia
see: http://www.lcca.lv/projects/survival_eng/

During the night from September 4 to 5, the SURVIVAL KIT 2 contemporary art festival, organised by the Latvian Centre for Contemporary Art for a second year, will take place alongside the activities of the White Night contemporary culture forum. More than 70 artists will reflect and produce different survival strategies in the contemporary world. Exhibitions, workshops, performances, film programme and lectures will take place from September 4 until September 11.

The SURVIVAL KIT festival was launched in 2009 in response to the dramatic crisis-induced changes within Latvian society. This year the festival will continue to beat to the pulse of the latest trends and positive transformations within cities, society and the world at large, and report on the contribution of artists in making the world a better place.

“In the last year, parallel to the opening of multifunctional shops, coffee bars and hairdressers with their own cultural programme, several creative hubs have come to the fore in Riga. The city has also witnessed the development of creative incubators encouraging interaction between culture and business. These new initiatives declare culture as a substantial component of the “survival kit” and as a vehicle for future development,” says SURVIVAL KIT 2 Festival Curator Solvita Krese.

pointligneplan: la nouvelle collection en ligne
Avec le soutien du Forum des images, du Centre national des arts plastiques et du Centre national du cinéma et de l’image animée, pointligneplan vient de mettre à jour sa collection de films au croisement du cinéma et de l’art contemporain. Elle réunit aujourd’hui 42 auteurs et 100 films.
Ces films sont accessibles dans leur intégralité en vidéo à la demande sur www.pointligneplan.com et www.plpfilmmakers.com
Cette collection confirme l’émergence d’œuvres singulières inquiétant les lignes de partage entre documentaire et fiction, journal filmé et essai, fonction narrative et expérimentation plastique, cinéma et art contemporain. En autorisant un accès aux œuvres en vidéo à la demande, pointligneplan s’engage dans le passage de relais entre le cinéma et de nouvelles formes de relations aux images.
