Since 2000, Anetta Mona Chisa and Lucia Tkáčová have been collaborating to produce intellectual, acerbically humorous works that challenge gender stereotypes, the processes of making and marketing art, and the repressive insider-outsider dichotomies of political and cultural systems. Everything and everyone is fair game for their provocative, irreverent videos, installations, performances, and text-based works. In their Dialectics of Subjection videos (2004-06), for example, Chisa and Tkáčová treat male politicians, artists, curators, and critics as sex objects, discussing their erotic appeal and whether or not they would sleep with them. For their ongoing Private Collection project (2005-), they steal various mundane objects from prestigious contemporary art galleries and display them like valuable works of art, attempting, as they write, “to undermine the orthodoxies of a capitalist market within the art system.”
