The Modern ArtistKOSAARA
"Kosaara - The Modern Artist" project, a combination of happening, lecture and campaign, is the first project by the Kosaara Group. An art historian presents Kosaara on the basis of the Internet work entitled "The Modern Artist", published at http://www.citygallery.pl/. The lecture is an attempt to grasp the condition of the modern artist, as well as to "promote coca-cola and hamburgers" or - in other words - to voice a protest against commercialisation. Everything can be treated as art, it is only the question of interpretation and promotion. All Kosaara's works, except one - the authorial "Kosaara's dance", are influenced to a greater or lesser extent by real artworks of the second half of the 20th century. The historian of art is fascinated with Kosaara and tries to pass this fascination on the audience. In the sources of inspiration for the project the authors mention such artists as Woody Allen, The Monty Python Group, Witold Gombrowicz, Francis Rebelais and Miguel de Cervantes.
