Launching Art Police Gazette - 54th Venice Biennale 2011

Meet with The Krasnals from 1-7 June in Venice. You will notice us at Giardini or Arsenale area, with our The Kingdom of The Krasnals pavilion.

We have a pleasure to inform you about launching of the new art magazine Art Police Gazette. The first issue of this publication is fully devoted to 54th Venice Biennale 2011. The Krasnals have just begun to print hundreds of thousands of copies and to distribute them for free all over the world. This journalistic experiment is recommended by top art critics and curators, some of their opinions are placed in the issue.

Is modeled on the World’s Leading Art Magazine Flash Art and an old American tabloid Police Gazette.

Founded in 2011 by anonymous artists The Krasnals (The Dwarves), it immediately established itself as the leading magazine of contemporary art worldwide, both for its choice of artists and its coverage of the most up-to-date trends. It has the chance to become the “cult” benchmark for contemporary art in Europe. Published irregularly for a year, it will be most followed and influential art magazine. Distributed in 87 countries.

Polish joke artist WHIELKI KRASNAL – (the leader of The Krasnals art collective)
is launching a new art magazine Art Police Gazette, in collaboration with much-loved Greek supercollector. Dubbed Art Police Gazette, the publication is described as “a new generation magazine that combines commercial painting, twisted narratives and surrealistic imaginary to create a series of powerful visual tableaux.” Whielki Krasnal is collaborating on the project with the photographer Krasnal Bansky.

The launch of the publication coincides with The Krasnals show at Venice Biennale, June 1 – November 27, 2011. Located in the New National Pavilion of The Kingdom of The Krasnals, the space is inaugurated this year with a collaboration between Bice Curiger and Vittorio Sgarbi.

According to Anda Rottenberg Art Police Gazette is “introducing an iconosphere that makes you think into the public domain, a lot wider than the gallery circulation”.
When asked whether The Krasnals were provocateurs, Rottenberg said that provocation is not the aim of those anonymous artists, but a means to “expose certain phenomena to the eyes of the society”.
