Argumented Reality
online exhibition

Curated by Lenka Střeláková. | The exhibition follows various forms of moving image that accentuate the critical and self-reflexive potential of media art. The burden of proof is inverted with increasing regularity in relation to the digital image and contemporary technology. Mediated reality becomes argumented reality.

The First Wave
online exhibition
27 Sep – 10 Oct 2021 | The first study courses focused on video art and new media at art schools in Czechoslovakia (and later the Czech Republic) were established soon after 1989. The first wave saw the establishment, in 1990, of the Department of Animation and Video at the Film and Television Faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague (FAMU), followed a year later by the New Media Studio at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague (AVU). In 1993, the Faculty of Fine Arts (FaVU) at the Brno University of Technology was established, along with a specialised study course focused on electronic multimedia art. These were the three essential departments at which a new generation of art of the moving image in the Czech Republic was formed before the year 2000.
