The main exhibition presents a group of authors from the wider Central European region, who in their work repeatedly address the issues of determination, naming, composition, organization and meaning of the elements that make up the world we inhabit. These include Uršula Berlot-Pompe, Zdeněk Trs and Jaroslav Grulkowski and Lubomír Axmann, representing the apparent transparency of a logical system, technically accurate visualizations of its structure. Visitors can also see the realizations of Jana Gunstheimer, Áron Kútvölgyi-Szabó, Agata Gertschen, Ondřej Přibyl, Joanna Leszczyńská, Adam Kokesch and other Central European artists. The exhibition includes relatively separate exhibitions Human Records (curator Šárka Belšíková), Hunted (curator Štěpánka Bieleszová) and presentations by Pavel Büchler (curator Gina Renotière).
Ladislav Daněk presented a large retrospective exhibition by Jan Pamuła, the founder of computer art in Poland. Pamuła is a personality of European format, his works regularly appear at important Polish and foreign exhibitions and his works are owned by leading museum institutions not only in Poland but also abroad. The exhibition follows the systematic presentation of the most prominent artists working in Central Europe and conceptually fits into the project of the Central European Forum Olomouc.
The curator of the architecture collection, Martina Mertová, introduced the audience to the Hey-Act! Under the leadership of Szymon Rozwałka, students of the Institute of Experimental Creation at Brno University of Technology were looking for a concept of how to deal with the valuable but neglected area of the Hejčín district and the abandoned building of the Faculty of Science. Are there ruins that we can simply demolish or recycle ourselves for? What is the potential of the whole territory? Can it become the new center of the urbanly clueless and congested Hejčín? What other features can it handle? Is it bold to revise the valid territorial documentation?
For another guided tour of the triennial, those interested can come on Thursday, July 15, 2021 from 5 pm.
