FICTIUNEA CONTEMPORANEITATII: COLECTVITATEA SPECULATIVA SI TRANSNATIONALUL GLOBAL

"Practicile artistice sunt in ziua de azi subordonate timpului in forma unei cereri pentru contemporaneitate.
Este, in opinia mea, ceva exemplar in lucrarile Atlas Group, prin combinatia de contemporaneitate si fictiune, in ceea ce priveste constructia unei categorii critice a artei contemporane. Proiectul Atlas Group este exemplar ca o constructie si expresie artistica - o constructie si ca rezultat, o expresie- a insasi fictiunii contemporaneitatii. In special, se va dezbate ca arta Atlas Group este inteleasa in mod productiv ca o constructie/expresie a fictiunii contemporaneitatii in forma specifica a colectivitatii speculative a transntionalului global. 
Aceasta afirmatie are cinci mari componente conceptuale:
1. Contemporaneitatea ca idee, problema si fictiune.
2. Caracterul global transantional al artei contemporane.
3. Arta ca o constructie/expresie a contemporanului.
4. Fictionalizarea autoritatii artistice.
5. Colectivizarea fictiunilor artistice. 
Ceea ce urmeaza subliniaza aceste coordonate teoretice inainte de a ne intoarce la proiectul Atlas Group. In consecinta, aspira la statutul unui studiu de caz in formarea critica de canoane in arta contemporana."

THE FICTION OF THE CONTEMPORARY: SPECULATIVE COLLECTIVITY AND THE GLOBAL TRANSNATIONAL 

"Art practices today are subject to time primarily in the form of a demand for contemporaneity. 
There is, I believe, something exemplary about The Atlas Group’s works combination of contemporaneity and fiction with regard to the construction of a critical category of contemporary art. The Atlas Group Project is exemplary as an artistic construction and expression – a construction and thereby an expression – of the fiction of the contemporary itself. More particularly, it will be argued, the art of The Atlas Group is most productively understood as a construction/expression of the fiction of the contemporary in the specific form of the speculative collectivity of the globally transnational. 
This claim has five main conceptual components: 
1. the contemporary as idea, problem and fiction 
2. the globally transnational character of the contemporary today
3. art as construction/expression of the contemporary 
4. the fictionalization of artistic authority 
5. the collectivization of artistic fictions. 
What follows outlines these theoretical coordinates before returning to The Atlas Group project. As such, it aspires to something like the status of a case study in critical canon formation in contemporary art."
(excerpt from "The Fiction of Contemporary: Speculative Collectivity and the Global Transnational", Peter Osborne, 2010)
