lecture with samples– Vladimir 518, Jan Matoušek
Vladimir 518 and Jan Matoušek will introduce their latest project City Is a Medium, which is a unique book project within the Czech environment. As the authors say, the book is about the relationship between light and the city, about its free use for settling public space.
Besides the phenomenon of urban neon signs, it also follows the story of light in the arts from the beginning of the 20th century to the present.Zdeněk Pešánek, Stanislav Zippe, Václav Cigler, Magdalena Jetelová, Krištof Kintera and a young generation of artists, who, besides the classical forms, work on the boundaries of guerrilla and artistic activism, are all brought together in the book. The extensive pictorial section of the book covers over 400 pages of the publication and is accompanied by the texts of Miroslav Petříček, Tomáš Pospiszyl, Jiří Zemánek, Klára Žaludová and many others. The book was published in cooperation with Bigg Boss and the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague and the launch ceremony took place on the 30th of November in the Roxy Club, Prague. Therefore PAF visitors will have the opportunity to be among the first to see this newly released book, which will be introduced in person by the co-authors.
