David Přílučík: The Least Action

exhibition
​David Přílučík's work concerns how to deal with the loss of authenticity in the age of image reproduction. However, he is not interested in what is and what is not authentic; rather he addresses the question of how a sense of authenticity can emerge and what people do in order to achieve it. The work is on video.

Corpus Christi Chapel | screening

friday 5 dec | 16:30 & 23:30
saturday 6. dec | 19:00 & 21:30

In 1972 John Berger asked, in his canonical BBC documentary Ways of Seeing, questions about the uniqueness and authenticity of works of art, about the ways we perceive and interpret it, and how the original is different from a copy. After more than forty years, from Ways of Seeing has become Ways of Something. In this remake made by top contemporary digital artists, the old truths about art are modified to the needs of the new age – the age after the internet.

The mobile gallery in a tram will feature selected digital prints from the series of the same name. It is no coincidence that the names of many of the authors are already known to PAF visitors.
