Presentation: Ursula Maria Probst

In his newest project, “Artzone-Timezone,” Kamen Stoyanov went into the 798 Art Zone in Peking in order to get to know the works of art there in through a game and to understand the imported Western marketing mechanisms. From this he developed a hip-hop song sung by two Chinese musicians to show where art and entertainment intersect.

In the previous project, “Which One Should I Buy,” he got two collectors and two gallerists to participate in a game. The Budapest galleries, Kisterem and Godot, competed against one another and offered the collectors, Zsolt Somlói and Katalin Spengler, each a work of art. The communication was conducted through chat and both the pieces and the artists were kept a secret until the decision to buy was made.

Kamen Stoyanov, born 1977 in Rousse, Bulgaria, lives and works in Vienna
