ANETTA MONA CHISA & LUCIA TKACOVA
The Trivial Few, 2007/08
In 1906 Vilfred Pareto, an Italian sociologist and economist, noticed that 80% of Italy's wealth was owned by 20% of the population and the rest 80% of inhabitants shared the remaining 20% of resources. The Pareto principle (also known as the 80:20 rule) became an economical equation that reflects the uneven distribution of the global wealth. In 1937, Joseph M. Juran conceptualized the 80:20 principle and extended it to the rule of "the vital" few and the "trivial many", claiming that 80% of the effects comes from 20% of the causes. Its universal application makes it one of the most useful concepts and tools of modern-day management.

Anetta Mona Chisa (Prague) and Lucia Tkacova (Bratislava) have been working together since 2000. They explore gender relations as well as their role of Eastern European artists in a Western-dominated art world. With videos, installations, textual works, and performances they refract consumer expectations and trigger processes of reflection about gender questions, the art market, and making art.
They focus on the post-communist world with all its changes. The gaze of the artists is directed at the concrete experiential world of individuals being subjected to the transformation process from communism to capitalism.

Accompanying to the exhibiton at Neuer Berliner Kunstverein the catalogue "Anetta Mona Chisa/Lucia Tkacova" (German/English, 208 p. with several images, euro 19,80) has been published at Walther König, Cologne.
