passages用assagen用as癰e is an exhibition that pays tribute to Walter Benjamin壮 poetic theory about passages amidst a booming postsocialist economy. As a city marked by the construction of passages in the 19th and 20th centuries, Bratislava is the point of departure for the exhibition and the videos are featured in the public space of Panenska street. Far from being historically obsolete, market economy shows itself a historical force of unprecedented vigor in former Warsaw pact societies and most of all so in Bratislava, capital of the Slovak Republic, the most advanced "new economy" in eastern Europe.

To bring the concept of passage a step further, Nadine Gandy has invited 3 international art centers to participate in passages用assagen用as癰e. Concurrently to the presentation of the videos in Bratislava in December, the works are transmitted electronically to Single Screens located in the mus馥 du Jeu de Paume (Paris), the Goethe Institut in New York and g-mk art center in Zagreb. The softwareemployedforthetransferofthevideosis made possible by open-PLAYER (www.open-player.com), a new and innovative technology that ensures playback and transmission online of video content in broadcast quality (high definitionincluded).
