Arterritory Conversations No 7

It is important to us to ask our interlocutor the best-aimed question. One that would help them reveal their outlook on the world and the role of art in it. ‘How do you think your work differs from a child’s scribble?’ ‒ we asked the British artist David Shrigley. ‘Do you think as you talk, or have you already thought everything out beforehand?’ ‒ we asked Hans-Ulrich Obrist, one of the best-known curators on the contemporary art scene. This time, we have put a whole variety of different questions to eighteen brilliant personalities, including the painter and filmmaker Julian Schnabel, the art collective Slavs and Tatars, director of Fondation Beyeler Sam Keller and many others.

Arterritory Conversations No 6

What and how do we speak about contemporary art? Why are our discussions on the subject important and what do they influence? We talk about it with Artistic Director of PinchukArtCentre Björn Geldhof, the Polish artist Artur Żmijewski, the Flemish Jan Fabre and Belgian Hans Op de Beeck. The Israeli artist Sigalit Landau tells us about her experience of artistic collaboration with the Dead Sea. The issue also features curator of the first Riga International Biennial of Contemporary Art Katerina Gregos, architect Yoshiharu Tsukamoto, Director of Art Cologne Daniel Hug and many others.

Arterritory Conversations No 5

How does contemporary art feel in the world of post-truth (according to the Oxford English Dictionary, Word of the Year 2016)? Could we say that it is art that becomes ‘truth’ in this reality ‒ exactly for the reason that it makes no claim to realism? Between the covers of the fifth issue, you will find compiled our conversations on the subject with Tony Oursler, Jake Chapman, Ernesto Neto, Tino Sehgal, Joana Vasconcelos, Wilhelm Sasnal, Hedwig Fijen and a whole range of other important artists, curators and gallerists.

Arterritory Conversations No 4

‘What would be the perfect or ideal world for you?’– we asked the Austrian artist Erwin Wurm. ‘More freedom, more tolerance, less orthodox structures coming back in politics and relations, more enlightenment; yes – more freedom’, – he said. The subject of freedom of thought and artistic gesture is developed in our conversations with the Polish artist Mirosław Bałka, cult heroes of the British art scene Gilbert and George, the French ‘feminist icon’ ORLAN, as well as Olafur Eliasson, Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev and Lev Manovich. We also present two Baltic stars ‒ Miķelis Fišers and Raul Keller.

Christian Boltanski tells us: ‘The job of an artist is to finish the work, but at the same time, to leave it open – unlocked.’ Antony Gormley assures us that ‘art can shift our thought and feeling patterns in a new direction’. Others who talk to us and share their thoughts on art include Udo Kittelman, Sune Nordgren, Thaddaeus Ropac, Marcel Wanders, as well as the director, artist and genuine avant-garde figure that is Jonas Mekas, whose name is a symbol both in the Baltic States and the USA. Plus ‒ Alvis Hermanis, Signe Baumane, Olga Sviblova and others.

While the first issue was a compilation of our best interviews from 2012, the second one presented the most important conversations that had taken place in 2013. We were lucky to sit down for a chat with Jan Fabre, the Belgian artist expressing himself not only in contemporary visual art but also in the performance genre, with the pioneer of Finnish video art Eija-Liisa Ahtila, the Danish architect Bjarke Ingels, world-class curator Hans-Ulrich Obrist, Estonian artist Raoul Kurvitz, gallerist Andrew Renton (Marlborough Contemporary art gallery), Czech sculptor David Černý, Latvian artist Maija Kurševa and others.

Arterritory Conversations No 1

Interviews with artists and curators are more than just condensed summaries of world views. It is an intellectual spark that is born between collocutors and starts the fire of conversation. It is something like a photograph, a snapshot capturing the state of mind of the people talking. The first issue features our ‘pictures’ with the British artist Mike Nelson, Ragnar Kjartansson from Iceland, Henrik Vibskov from Denmark, Marat Gelman and Viktor Misiano from Moscow, as well as Director of the Whitechapel Gallery Iwona Blazwick and Turner Prize winner Martin Creed.

There is no doubt that collectors complement and perfect the art world. And art helps them and everybody who is ready for that to become more aware of themselves and everything around them, to expand the boundaries of imagination and perception. ‘Imagine spaces without art. Imagine churches without art. Imagine all the history, all the creative people – without art. It just doesn't work’ – believes the Swiss gallerist and collector Stefan von Bartha.

Only collectors are ready to take a risk and invest in artists who are in need of support “here and now”. In addition, a collector’s collection is a statement of sorts. It cannot be described with a single word or phrase; a collection’s logic is much more complex and individual. Turkish art collector Agah Uğur tells us: “I am responsible for the collection to achieve its mission. Not my own personal mission, but I have a responsibility to help the collection achieve its own mission.”

Is it true or just a legend? It’s difficult to tell. But in this issue of Arterritory Conversations with Collectors we talk about whether there is such a thing as a “collector gene”. And if yes, where is this gene located in a person? There can be various opinions about this, but we like the idea that it might reside in the eyes and visual system. Because this system operates a bit differently in art experts, apologists and collectors.

In today’s art world, collectors have become just as influential as art critics and curators. The collector enters the art environment through his or her passion and is ready to share it with others just as passionately. The way in which collectors speak about art and display their collections allows art to enter other people’s worlds as well. “I don’t think of the things in my collection as of things that I own,” Daniel Wolf told us in New York. “No, I think about having them for a period of time to learn from them, and then they move on. Owning is not the goal. Learning is.” The eleven conversations in this issue tell eleven very personal stories about how art expands the space for thought and about how art can change as well as heal us.

The protagonists of this issue are people of all ages and of different opinions about contemporaneity. But one element nevertheless unites them: they share not only a passion for art but also a distinct ability to focus and turn their attention and energy to a specific goal they have set for themselves. They are all guided by a vision that they strive to embody in reality. “You have to be focused. You can’t do everything; it doesn’t work,” says Jean Pigozzi, who owns the world’s largest collection of contemporary African art.

This publication offers an insight into some superb art collections as well as conversations about art and how the passion for collecting art has changed the lives and world views of the people linked with these collections. These are conversations about causes and effects, about the process and each individual’s personal path to the collection, about how art can become an integral part of everyone’s life. The people featured in this first issue of Arterritory Conversations with Collectors are united by a result: the creation of a prestigious art collection. These are personalities who, due to their status and investment in art, have become authorities whose opinions are taken into account not only by the art market but by the art world in general.
