What is relevant today? We believe all of us suffering from environmental grief deals with this question in one way or another. What could we do to perform somewhat improvement that could respond to the climate crisis? What kind of major change in human mindset is required to lose this annoying sensation of uselessness in front of unstoppable changes we are experiencing? Somehow blaming institutions no matter whether we point at the government, museum or galleries, is not enough. Taking responsibility for finding the answer to these questions starts with a question what can I do/change within walls of my own studio within my own artistic practice? We would like to encourage a discussion about sustainable studio practice and turn it into a starting point for a residency dedicated to this topic which is going to start on March 2020 at MeetFactory.
The discussion will accompany the announcement of regional (distanced up to 1000 kilometers from Prague) open call for sustainable studio practice.
The discussion featured by Hynek Alt, Barbora Skácelová Fastrová, Klara Hobza, Juliana Höschlová, Amelia Tan, Matěj Pavlík, Johana Pošová, Nik Timková
The discussion will be in English.
Since 7 pm the first floor will be opened and our residents will present their work. The open studios' guided tour will be lead by curators Lucia Kvočáková and Piotr Sikora. It starts at 8 pm.
