Kamen Stoyanov - Artzone-Timezone



In his newest project, Artzone-Timezone, Kamen Stoyanov goes into the 798 Art District in Beijing to familiarize himself with the works of art there and to understand the role of imported Western marketing mechanisms. From this, he develops a hip-hop song sung by two Chinese musicians to show the intersection of art and entertainment.

In the previous project, Which one should I buy, Stoyanov invites two collectors and two gallery owners to participate in a game.

The Budapest galleries, Kisterem and Godot, compete against one another and offer the collectors, Zsolt Somlói and Katalin Spengler, each a work of art. All communication is conducted via text messaging and both the works and the artists are kept secret until the decision to buy is made.
