The SEFO 2024 Triennial penetrates all the cultural activities of the city and festival forms, and, in cooperation with friendly institutions, leaves the city borders.

CENTRAL – the museum’s new cultural multifunctional space was acquired through the careful renovation of the former Central Cinema, which for years was called “Moskva” (Moscow). The exceptional opportunity of a memory institution to create dramaturgy for a live theatre scene was tested for the first time at this year’s edition of the “Divadelní flóra” festival, in the preparation of which MUO fully participates. In a co-production with the festival and with a direct link to the theme of the Triennial, we invited the Austrian theatre company Hungry Sharks, who performed the movement performance Beton Brut at the S-Club. Questions of memory, mystery, and the mystification of the story are addressed in the traditional autumn traditional local festival Days of Jewish Culture.

Together with Academia Film Olomouc, we produced and premiered the Olomouc episode of the podcast “Mluvící objekty” (Talking Objects) as part of the festival programme, which we will be working with in the field during the nationwide Architecture Day event.

Mockument, in the original meaning of the term from the theory of fim science, will resonate at the Animation Film Showcase/PAF cultural platform.

A special place also belongs to the leading architectural gallery VI PER in Prague, with whom we are preparing programmes both in the capital and in Olomouc. We are curating the artistic projects of Aglaia Konrad (AT, BE) and Tytus Szabelski (PL) at both addresses. As guest curators, Irena Lehkoživová and Barbora Špičáková will present the exhibition of Tomáš Džadoň (SK) in the XY gallery of the local theatre scene Na cucky.

Other partners come from the ranks of foreign institutes and centres. With the Polish Institute we are preparing a podcast series focusing on artists exhibiting at the Triennial, and with the Hungarian Cultural Institute we are preparing a debate on museums, galleries, and cultural institutions as democratic spaces. And the Slovak Institute is preparing a three-part programme consisting of a historical probe on Bratislava called “Pozri, Prešporok!” (Look, Prešporok! From Graphic Veduta to Photographic Views), curated by Lucia Almášiová and Patrícia Ballx for the Bratislava City Gallery, a public space intervention by the visual artist Jaro Varga, and a film micro-festival dedicated to the creative personalities of the Czechoslovak art scene.
