IMPORTANT NOTE: I don’t want to see any rich collectors subscribing to this 2-euro tier. This tier is only for artist, students and decent poor people! If I see any big collectors on the 2-euro tier they will be thrown out and blocked!

Our policing is lazy, so you might slip past the glorious paywalls dressed like a beggar, but please note that our justice system is as severe and cruel as our policing is lazy. This is what happened to a rich collector who got caught! This guy received a warning letter, but he was also the last to receive one! Other trespassers will get a lifetime ban!

MORE ABOUT KIRAC 
In their gonzo-journalistic films and video essays, you can see the members of team-KIRAC bounce into institutions, art dealers, artists, and other members of the cultural establishment, creating new artistic territory as they go. They fill up this new territory with excluded artists, marginality, new ideas and atavisms. The recurring characters are living out their own cultural/mythological search for truth. KIRAC is a loosely orchestrated, and meticulously assembled perspective on the different ideological and cultural frameworks that define our time. Every episode is defined by a specific mentally projected ‘problem’ of which KIRAC shows the labyrinths of thought and their institutionalised hierarchies.

HOW DID KIRAC ORIGINATE?
In 2016, keeping it real art critics was first heard of when a mysterious video project surfaced on YouTube: a short film in which the creators Stefan Ruitenbeek and Kate Sinha used a well-constructed yet playful argument to annihilate the work of award-winning artist Saskia Noor van Imhoff. Further episodes have popped up since, each one showing the careful dissection of a specific case related to either art or artist. A throng of die-hard fans now follows this process with a mixture of pleasure and horror.

WHAT IS KIRAC LOOKING FOR?
KIRAC is in search of love, in the form of truth. It uses that sincerest and most impossible Enlightenment fetish of all: dialectics. In other words, the belief that the truth can and will emerge only from reasonable discussion; the belief, therefore, that discussion and criticism is always permitted, and that in the end, each opponent is really an ally in this overriding search for truth. An impossible ideal, for people don't want reason, people want to win, and the truth will always serve this purpose. KIRAC is no exception.
In lieu of real adversaries, KIRAC has become proficient in building imperfect enemies into nearly worthy opponents. Meanwhile, its enemies grow bigger and more advanced and the stakes are ever higher. Only time can tell if KIRAC will succeed in transforming fiction and belief into reality.

About STEFAN RUITENBEEK
Director and main editor of KIRAC. His compulsive tendency to film and capture his environment is maybe the most rudimentary condition that made KIRAC come to life. This environment is art and the art-world and his friends and enemies. They form the themes and character for KIRAC. Stefan was born in 1982, Breda, The Netherlands.

About KATE SINHA
Kate Sinha (1988, Deventer, The Netherlands) is a trained archeologist. She paints and writes, and together with Stefan Ruitenbeek she makes the KIRAC films.
