PAF invites you to an exhibition opening in The Brno House of Arts, where on Tuesday, the 3rd of May an opening of exhibition called Vystavovatel a jeho diváci ("The Exhibitor and His Spectators") takes place. Martin Mazanec, programme coordinator of PAF, participated in the project as a curator. The exhibition can be seen until the 12th of June 2011.
For the authors of Brno exhibition, Pavel Karous, Michal Pěchouček, Pavel Sterec and Dušan Zahoranský, almost conflicting basis of ideological and artistic views is characteristic. This basis spans from modernistic redefinitions of formal systems of painting and sculpture, analyses of the moving image of film and video to post-conceptual methods focusing f. e. on archeology and sociology in the arts. The four authors can be considered as a temporary group which created the resultant scenography of the gallery as a whole within the collective consultations (2009–2011). The whole is composed of interior-interpreted pieces changing the presentation and meaning of the works of art. Mise-en-scène of the exhibition was composed of the spatial attributes pointing to exhibiting works of art and its possible redefinitions in the setting of galleries' white walls.

Among the default aspects of mise-en-scène can be put the original environment of the exhibition hall, its lightning, selected installation material, selected colouring, spatial arrangement of the artefacts, their framing and together with other elements, acoustics of the place and the resulting movement of the spectator.
