ismTC is an art project co-founded by Iv Toshain and Anna Ceeh in 2012, which celebrates their first upcoming group show in Vienna, БАЙХТЕ.
For the show FEMIN
ismTC: БАЙХТЕ (the name represents both a semiotic sign and the transcription of the German word “confession” in Cyrillic script ) Anna Ceeh and Iv Toshain have invited 12 renowned Austrian and international artists and duos to develop one slogan or message concerning the concept of the ideology-critical art project FEMIN ismTC.
Taking part are the provocative shooting stars of the art scene – Anetta Mona Chişa & Lucia Tkáčová (RO/ SK) , the he/she transmedia artist Hans Scheirl (AT), the duo made up of the socio-critical Nomeda Urbonas(LT) and MIT professor Gediminas Urbonas (U.S.), the outspoken gender/ porn artist and writer Slava Mogutin (RU/ U.S.), the sharp thinkingmedia art pioneer VALIE EXPORT (AT) alongside the relish-emancipatory art icon Carolee Schneemann (U.S.). Also on board is the master of minimalist and post-conceptual art Boris Ondreička (SK), androgynous music producer and „multichannel meta-artist“ Kiwa (EE) who’s work is notorious for identity and language games, the Vienna-based socio-critical comic book artist Linda Bilda (AT).
Further participants are Siggi Hofer (IT/ AT) who is removing the boundaries between text and image, as well as both the project initiators and artists themselves – Anna Ceeh (RU/ AT) who acts actionistic – performative, questioning concepts such as „erection“, „ejaculation“ and Iv Toshain (BG), who is shooting with throwing stars, analyzing Social Symbols and their ambiguity.
The spectacular slogan presentation will take place at the Charim Events at Schleifmühlgasse 1a in Vienna.
