TransArts - Robert Jelinek: INCREASE THE HIGHT OF FALL

An event organised by TransArts - Transdisciplinary Art

With his transdisciplinary artistic work, Robert Jelinek has been providing effective and progressive impulses for establishing and communicating contemporary art outside the traditional art business since 1990. As a visual artist, he works at the interfaces of time-based media, electronic music, olfactory, publishing and statehood and is always looking for new artistic strategies, contexts and cross-over position. The lecture focuses on two of his projects as examples free from giddiness: State of Sabotage and Der Konterfei.

Robert Jelinek was born in 1970 in Pilsen, Czechoslovakia. An essential element of his working method is expanded artistic positioning and contextualization to continually further the sense of immediacy between work and audience. This method has been developed and refined over the past 30 years through his various brands and manifested in cooperation with several other artists. Whether with his internationally-renowned record label, Sabotage Recordings (1994-1999), the hit perfume, CASH - The Scent of Money (1998), or the micro-state, State of Sabotage (SoS) (2003-2013), Jelinek’s body of work has consistently offered a bold alternative to the established practices and solutions of the conventional culture industry. In 2014, Jelinek founded the publication series, DER KONTERFEI, an extended artistic production in which epistemological interests and the drive for depiction are reduced to language and text, which also provides a growing curricular basis for a future SoS Academy. Jelinek lives and works in Vienna and Athens.
