tasks look difficult in the contemporary situation. Philosopher and writer Ken
Wilber characterizes: ”With the death of the avant-garde and the
triumph of irony, art seems to have nothing sincere to say. Narcissism and
nihilism battle for a center stage that isn’t even there; kitsch and camp
crawl all over each other in a fight for a representation that no longer

critic alike, caught in halls of self-reflecting mirrors, admiring their image

interest to art is very low, and sincere arts are devoid of possibilities to
communicate in the world.

our joint endeavours, goals, and mission as a new paradigm of the twenty-first
century: ”Let us perpetuate cooperative communication among us – producing
important international theme exhibitions, sponsoring educational forums and
programs, creating and distributing new age publications, and inventing far
reaching, new visual languages that employ universal movement, sound and
symbology. We, both collectively and as individual artists, must
simultaneously initiate economic enhancement projects as we will encourage the
human spirit to reach new heights. In this new paradigm of the twenty-first
century, humanity’s quest for peace, tolerance, love and harmony is treading
exciting new paths. We take pride that our collective work has contributed
significantly to the creative footprint of this era”.
believe in quick progress of our endeavours;
people are inner waiting for a new renaissance in art. In the New Year the new
ideas will come from many people, many enthusiasts will realize them.
