This book is an Absolute Report of the last five years of the 20. century from the perspective of a specific artistic network that was active at that time. We present the projects that APSOLUTNO created in that period as well as reports by various artists, media thinkers and other important personalities that APOLUTNO met within the same East-West network in the sphere of new art & media practices. In this book we find parallels between our own projects and those of others, by identifying four important themes that run through the work created at that time: time, space, code, and memory. (association APSOLUTNO)

It takes place when it doesn´t. On dance and performance since 1989 follows the congress of Tanzquartier Wien to which we had invited participants from all over Europe to talk about new geographies and artistic workforms and workspaces in the fields of dance and performance, about the widely interweaved and cross-referencing, often indistinguishable and multiply coded cultural figures of production, reception and reflection. The focus was beyond the borders of disciplines and beyond the classical play of presentation and interpretation. Also, it was about showing spaces of action that lie outside the hermetic and taxonomic models of representation of a medial and academic discourse mostly reproducing areas of terminology or dichotomies like Western/ Non-Western, which by now have become canonical.

The point of departure is a difference between Eastern and Western Europe that I try to conceptualize philosophically, insisting on a difference - a critical difference within and not a special classification method marking the process of grounding differences. This book can be perceived as a radical theorization of a particular (Eastern European) position; here positioning means repoliticization. Fiction Reconstructed offers a very detailed inquiry into specific Post-Socialist art and media strategies. (Marina Grzinic)
