The studio is a melting pot, home battleground, first exam, living room. It is the place where students are first exposed to boredom and boredom of art, professional freedom, craft, discussion – with teachers, with themselves and with each other. Where they also start profiling, differentiate and set aside, but also where they are safe. At the same time, a parrot can emerge from the red surface, and from the white paper an elegant dogs leg, the landscape work is measured by a strong psychological portrait and the wind is shaped. The way of academic education is unique in terms of how much space is given to those who go through them – and how it is, in addition to its flexibility, precise if both sides, students and teachers are doing so. Academic education is an education for the ideal, forever, necessarily. And drawing is the foundation. If this is true of one of the studios, then certainly it is what has been led for many years by Jiří Lindovský – Graphic Design Studio of the Prague Academy of Fine Arts. An exhibition of those who went through them at that time, an exhibition of what is so-called – and its good! – is an exhibition for joy. And a celebration for all.
