PAF Art 2013 programme section consisting of installations within PAF was reflected in the current issue of Flash Art, the prestigious journal focusing on contemporary art.
In Flash Art - Czech & Slovak Edition the programme section was reviewed by the visual artist and pedagogue at the Department of Art education, Faculty of Education, Palacký University – Vladimír Havlík.
The baroque qualities of PAF dramaturgy is being revealed in mostly positive review. He mentions that the Baroque genius loci of the former Jesuit Konvikt, in which PAF takes place,
"strongly influences the content, structure and form of the whole festival."
He insists on the baroque principle even in the conclusion:
"The (exhibition) premises of Konvikt cause such different atmosphere that visitors are going through as if they were going through film frames, they perceive their rhythm, fast or slow motion, repetition, backwards, fade-overs, transfocation and the concluding stop. The baroque dynamics brings strong, or even Dionysian emotions which (sometimes intensified by intoxication beverages) open space for openness, immediacy, closeness and mutuality.
Hopefully PAF will keep this trend going and will not slide into distant manners."
