“Unlimited Growth”

Everyday we consume more than we necessarily need. It is embedded in our consciousness, we accept it, it is drive of our life. It is its fulfillment. Consumption is necessary part of functioning economy. I am investigating ground principles of the market/capital and peoples’ manipulation within the market environment. I translate the results of my investigation into new visual and functional forms where I apply my personal conclusions and critique.

„Nekonečný růst“

Naše spotřeba přesahuje naši každodenní potřebu. Jsme si toho plně vědomi. Konzumace je motorem našeho života – jeho smyslem – jeho naplněním. Je součástí fungující ekonomiky. Zkoumám základní principy trhu/kapitálu a překládám je donových vizuálních a funkčních forem, kde používám moje osobní shrnutí a kritiku.

A New Sweden /invitation

Victor Marx (1983) is visual artist and architect who lives and works in Stockholm. He works with contemporary social themes that he incorporates into his urban interventions/projects. Scale of his work is somewhere between architectural forms and more sculptural forms with elements of performance, social interaction and participation.

His work goes over several fields of cultural/art production – his main focus is on social and urban solutions within the context of Sweden. But his themes have much broader importance, rather global – changes of current social fabric, multicultural identity, art and cultural activities within economically defined environment and their independence, DIY architecture and architecture in the margins, regeneration of unused public spaces, renewal of local social interaction etc.

Victor Marx’s work is frequently mentioned in Swedish media because of its connection to ongoing heated public debate about Sweden’s future and future of public/street art.

Victor was one the founders of Cyklopen independent culture house of which he is architect as well.

Cyklopen has gained its firm position in Stockholm’s contemporary cultural/art scene because of its community oriented approach and distancing from traditional and official cultural/art institutions that are having its limitations when being organized on hierarchical and bureaucratic base. Cyklopen is situated in the part of Stockholm where different cultures meet (Eastern European, Middle Eastern…) and where future Sweden is just taking shape.

Work if Victor Marx was currently documented by Martina Iverus for the new art program ARTityd (Swedish TV 1).

Mikael Tofvesson (1983) is visual artist working in the city of Stockholm. He is commited to street art for a long time and he uses street art related expressions and techniques – graphic, illustration, 3D animation… He was also taking part in Cyklopen independent culture house project and he is a member of street art collective (its name is hidden) together with Victor Marx and others. Micke does not prefer to use his real name – strong anonymity has ethical and practical use for street art artists but this time we meet him under his civil name.
