Art Magazine

Every year, in parallel to the art fair, SUPERMARKET publishes the Supermarket Art Magazine. The art magazine is an important part of Supermarket's public activities, where we share ideas and issues from the artist-run world, give voice to local and international contributors and introduce artists' initiatives in interviews and short snippets. The magazine is formulated around a specific theme that changes every year.
The magazine is distributed internationally and available to read online.
You can browse through the previous issues of Supermarket Art Magazine here.

The theme for Supermarket 2019 is 'Temporary Moratorium: All Allowed?'. Read the theme text below.
If you have a proposal for an article or other form of contribution to the Magazine, get in touch with alice@supermarketartfair.com.

 

Temporary Moratorium
All allowed?

Art, in its many forms of expression, has since its origins been fascinated by the unspoken. Depicting the unknown, addressing controversial subjects, breaking taboos and probing into firmly set principles, both the artist and the audience have found at the same time thrill and malaise in momentarily peeping into feared or prohibited topics. From nudity, eroticism, death and perversity to things seemingly less scandalous to portray – the issues of gender, nationality, race or freedom of speech. The limits of what is acceptable to exclaim differ from society to society, as do conventions, cultural habits and laws. They have also transformed considerably with time: subjects that used to be taboo are today passed without raising an eyebrow. What once shocked the viewer, be it sex, violence, decadence or obscenities, has become so commonplace in contemporary art that it is no longer shocking, just tiresome. At the same time, by common consensus, other less obvious topics have become undesirable to discuss, thus creating new taboos.

Although sometimes persecution follows the attention-seeking extravaganzas of artists, most often they are either generously forgiven for their eccentric but harmless caprices or, even more frequently, their artworks simply remain unnoticed outside of the self-contained artistic bubble. In this sense, contemporary art has had a privilege of nearly absolute, carefree freedom. There has always existed a certain moratorium in contemporary art, a state of lawlessness that shields it from the norms of the real world. Instead, it follows its own laws and trends of the art market. The downside of this freedom, however, is lack of wider impact. Inside of this microcosmos, everyone believes that in art, all is allowed, for it is Art and that is what makes it Real Art. Outside of it, no one cares to see more scandalous art. What may be considered a groundbreaking milestone in the artworld often at best draws a breeze of bemused public attention to the decadent and aimless existence of a contemporary artist. The common spectator wants art for the qualities ascribed to art for centuries – beauty, permanence and masterful technique – and most of all to find something relatable within.

Is then contemporary art not as relevant and revolutionary as we like to think? May it be that it is just a comfortable way of resistance, an acquisition of yet another type of convention, for we know that we are encircled by similarly-thinking minds and a large gap shielding us from the thoughts and judgments of the outside world?

The thing is that taboos have become more nuanced, whilst the temporary moratorium of art has turned permanent, stuck in its own conformism instead of challenging the constantly transforming tabooed subjects. It is easy to be scandalous if no one is looking. It is even easier to believe that we, the artists, are breaking boundaries with our art and challenging the viewers’ horizons. But what boundaries? How? For whom? For ourselves? Are these really the taboos that still need breaking, or have they been broken a long time ago? It is too simple to talk about things everyone else talks about, agree with the majority and jointly laugh at different opinions that are too different, horrible and absurd for us to wish to engage with in a debate. It is another thing to dare to question our set values, fears and principles and debate subjects that we would rather avoid. Only then we manage to ask: what are the taboos of today?

-AM

What is a moratorium?
A moratorium is a state or a situation when some laws or agreements are temporarily invalid. You could think of it as a bubble separated for an agreed amount of time from certain laws on the outside, but still complying with the remaining laws.

Happiness!

For 2013, we examine the theme of Happiness. Happy – is it really something we can become? In what contexts do we define and identify its meaning(s)? From positive psychology and scientific methods to religious and socially constructed beliefs, we are trying to understand what happiness is, how it might be attained and how it feels. What role does the concept of Happiness play in forming art’s meaning and role in today’s society?

All this in the third issue of SUPERMARKET artist-run art magazine:

Jeong Mee Yoon interviewed about the ‘Pink and Blue’ project.
WHAT’S HAPPENING IN THE ISTANBUL ART SCENE?
In search of artist-run spaces in Cape Town.
TWO-TO-ONE: THE ODDS OF A WOMAN SURVIVING THE ART SCENE IN SOUTH AFRICA.
On not making art in the revolution .
A STORY OF AN UNHAPPY ARTIST.
Interviews with Mary Ellen Croteau, Livia Rózsás, Alexia Turlin, Maryline Billod.
