Cleaning up the disordered world; state of the world, contemporary and itsfuture.
We create a perfect world, discovering and inventing new goods every singleday.Discovering thing that make our life easier and better. Connected to each otherwith one click. Having the lastest information and news provided by tv, radio andinternet. Sharing your life with friends and strangers within a second. Travellingto places for as cheap as buying shoes and as an everyday journey to work andback home. Simple and easy. You can have it now forget about the past.Instead, think more about your future. History is gone forever, because
we don’t 
need it anymore. Five minutes a day. Two days a week. One week a month. Threemonths a year. Five years for life. You will not remember more than that, because
you don’t know how to use your world to make it valuable and useful. Vast 
amounts of choices among important and signified contents. You need to beincredibly precise in order not to make a mistake. If you do so, you might loselots of your time, which is definatley important. With twenty five browsersopended simultaneously on your desktop you do not even remember what youopended the first one for. However you are still generating your own mess.Searching for
the best between more than a hundred “the best ever” products.Which one is really ‘the one’? It is all in your hands. No one can question your
selection nor can neglect it.And so it is with contemporary art. With millions and millions of artistseverywhere you are the only one to choose who you respect and whose art work is the most significant. You are also the one who has the power to reject.Founded on-line with google search, youtube or in one of six other small galleriesin Chelsea you start to have masters, stars and paragons.This is how I perceive contemporary world and this is how I place you withinthis world.You are going to be who I am writing about. Looking at art at present I will try tobound using any examples from todays artworld.Usi
ng the word ‘you” everytime I am just trying to address my work to you
particulary, you as a part and as a creator of my surrounding and you as a part of my other
art world.Whilst reading Hans Urlich Obrist 
Interviews 1, I found that all theartist/writers/thinkers he is talking to, were born before 1975. And all thosepeople (including an author) are the one I respect ( not even like, but know about them and know how much good they did for art since they came on the scene.Whene I went to the Berlin Biennial after all the exhibition we saw, my friendasked me if I can tell him about my favourite artist from our generation. I started
to think and after a while I said ‘I don’t know any genius artist who was bornlater than ‘75’. We started to talk why there is so much ‘art’ and ‘Art’ going onaround us, that we can’t even remember, and don’t have time to think about, for
more than 5 minutes. We could go to 10 openings on one night, and we would
find some magnificent work but later on we will visit and will no longer remberthis initial work. I could tell you today I saw a magnificent video by someone. Iwill remember it until the next good work I see. There is to much informationand too much going on creating the worst disorder.
‘A contemporary art bien
nal is a message in a bottle, a statement from its artist 
and curators about the times we’re living in. Visitors to the 5
berlin biennial canbe found trekking across grassy wastelands formerly occupied by the berlin wall,nosing through repurposed industrial buildings, and investigating antiquely
modernist palaces of glass and steel in search of…well, what exactly? Perhapswhat they seek is that elusive thing germans call zietgiest ‘[1]
 I read many articles responding to what was happening in berlin that year. Iheard that it was the worst art fair for years and also that there was nothing tosee. In some point I agree with this statement but I am not critising it. I
understand the curators ‘Szymczyk’ and ‘Filipovic’s concept behind
theexhibition. I un
derstood the title of the exhibition : when things cast no shadow’
 And I understand their way of curation in relation to general art condition today.The curators made a mess on purpose and to find a good work in this muddledheap you must be patient even though there is no time for contemplation asthere is so much art and so many events to see.Artists since modernism are making their work out of trash, found objects andusing their own excrements as components in their work. I observe that withevery new generation of artist they seem more and more focused on thedirtiness and filth (in terms of art) as I think that every next generation is moredamaged and more unresolved than the one before.The berlin biennal for me represented the current state of art.Next I would like to write about aesthetics in post modern art.In conversation with a friend we talked about how we could show our works toour families (say grandmother
grandfather) and tell them this is art, if theywould see some pixelated dark imahe of a naked man inbetween two trees forexample. How cheeky should I be to say this is my piece of work and I think it is
bery good.’ They wouldn’t understand my point as they need things to be nice
and shiny, a craft work. Exposing skills and talent from the initial aesthetic view.
Obcourse they appreciate Duchamps ‘Fountain” because it was revolutionary.
The point is that our art is not nice and it responds to what we are surroundedby.Next point is about making order and repairing the broken parts in relation tocontemporary art. What is the future of art? If art has to constantly re invent itself in order to survive. Is it destroying it self with its own weapon?In one interview the most detested Italian philosopher Umberto Eco isforeseeing tht all the super gadgets such as mobile phones, emails, youtube andgoogle, will die and we will only listen to the radio. We will return to a timebefore. He also wrot
