Art Style du Jour - BON INT No.8

My first article Art Style du Jour in Bon International No.8 focused on the trends in art. Looking at LOST & FOUND; abandoned objects, subverted and adapted=Dadaism repackaged, LIGHT, CAMERA, ACTION FOR PERFORMANCE' the everyday to the absurd inspire elaborate performances, THE FASHION CONNECTION; Art-the spring/summer collection of 2006, EASTERN BLOC RISING; the West's love affair with all things East, THE ESTABLISHMENT GETS A MAKEOVER; overexcited architects transform the art institution, THE RETURN OF SMALL PAINTING; all hail the miniature, ENAMEL PAINT; once a model-making kit essential, now an artist must have AND THE INSPIRATION OF SCIENCE; an exploration of our fascination with ourselves.
