The Black Box is the charred remains of the explosive IX Baltic Triennial of International Art, BMW (Black Market Worlds). With over 40 participants in and around the Contemporary Art Centre, Vilnius and schizophrenic alter-ego at The Baltic Triennial 33 1/2 at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London, The Black Box does not document, but captures activities spun off from BMW. From texts on subjects from transparency to zombies, from photographs of ghosts to tapped private conversations and space for the readers own thoughts, The Black Box provides a shadow world with its own logic and its own chaos.
