Presentation will be focused on Czech contemporary art in public space. Some of Petr Dub’s latest works were made in this field and he would love to show some great examples of some other authors. As the head of Spolek Skutek Union he have been representing an initiative that is trying to  increase the public budget dedicated to the art in public space. So he will present the topic also from political perspective – he will describe the negotiations with the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic.

Petr Dub – born. in 1976. Master and doctoral studies on FAVU BUT in Brno and AAAD in Prague. His works cover a wide spectrum of problems of the contemporary world: the ideology,  capital, memory, globality and locality. He creates installations and paintings-objects, in which elements hidden under canvas press against the smooth, taut “skin” of the painting, causing various shapes bulges. The different series of works are a commentary on the various cultural phenomena, but also says about personal experiences.
