See the Unicorn and Die…. !The student exhibition in the studio of KS DAMU - PQ23 is a combined exhibition of
artworks and spatial objects/installations from the period 2019 - 2023.
The objects and artworks are a link between the academic and artistic focus of the
Department of Scenography, the theme of PQ23, the term "Rare" and the continuous
process of exploring and rethinking what all the term scenography implies. –>

TO&JEN- premiereThere's a fly crawling on the window, the fat one they call the butcher. It's been crossing the window pane for ages. People usually loathe it, but it's actually beautiful, metallic green and blue, with translucent wings woven with silver threads. It's been crawling on the glass for a long time, and it doesn't know how to get out. Outside, the sun is shining, the colours are brilliant and the wind is blowing. She could fly all she wants. It's just the window that keeps her here! There must be a crack somewhere to get out of this dull, grey room. Out of the loneliness. And finally! There she is! She's found it. It was high time. The sun was just setting, the sky had turned a beautiful color, she'd enjoy the colors a little more! –>

DRUNKEN FORESTIn geology, the term drunken forest refers to vegetation growth growing on a slowly slumping hillside. The tree trunks grow in all sorts of crooked ways and the forest looks disorganized. For geologists, this signals that the bedrock is moving. In the exhibition's title, where students from the studios of the FAMU Department of Photography in Prague will meet, the drunken forest refers to the instability of the conditions in which these young people grow up and to artistic creation as repeated attempts to maintain balance. Through their works, however, the exhibition also points out how the tool we generically call photography and its department; reacts to these movements. –>
Call for projectsAMU Gallery hereby announces an open call for exhibition projects to complement the gallery’s program for 2024.
The call is intended for both Czech and foreign artists and curators; applications may be sent both in Czech and in English. Due to the wide spectrum of subjects taught at AMU (The Academy of Performing Arts in Prague) we prefer thematic, curatorial exhibition projects with interdisciplinary overlap, or exhibitions based around artistic research (especially in the field of photography and new media).

COMMUNITY AT THE MOMENT OF DISINTEGRATIONWhen we say body, we mean that constantly undulating assemblage of bones, meat and blood, but in fact, no such entity exists. The illusory feeling of a physically existing self. In each individual pore of the body we see endless spaces – empty spaces of wisdom – spaces of creativity. –>

The Metabolic PerspectiveEconomics is merely a continuation of nature by other means – terms like ’logistics’ or ’infrastructure’ can be applied equally well to the production and transportation of goods as to photosynthesis and food chains. But what if we were to begin considering human culture and communication as part of the planet’s natural metabolisms?
July 15 – August 27, 2021 (THE EXHIBITION IS EXTENDED UNTIL SEPTEMBER 3, 2021)
WE HAVE STOPPED COMMUNICATING WITH THE WORLD LONG AGOHands and other limbs are considered part of the body. Why then couldn’t all beings who possess a body be considered as part of a single being? There is no such thing as a disabled body, but only disabled socioeconomic systems.

Opera directors Veronika Loulová and Vilma Bořkovec set out to explore their frustrations about the opera world - where each seeks to express these grievances through her own particular style. In their first and probably last exhibition LAST SURVIVORS they take a critical look at the boundaries of opera and the rigidity of the system that still prevails in opera. –>

Body Movement as a Space-Time (Dis)continuityThe last, third part of the project focused on the relationship between contemporary art, choreography and contemporary dance is devoted to the issue of physical movement as space-time (dis)continuity. Perception of time and movement of the human body in contemporary video, performance and dance. The exhibition takes place completely in an online 3D environment, connecting both artistic areas through videos, installations and viewer interaction.

vast terrain, shifting perspective – vast perspective, shifting terrainExhibition is a part of Fotograf Festival #10
Perspective is a question of seeing and taking action. Both of which are directly connected to the experience of space. We now inhabit a living environment and communications space that ask or allow for a multitude of perspectives. In light of this it is possible to again pose the question as to the nature of social documentary photography. –>
12. 9. – 20. 9. 2020
Simple Present TenseSeven students exhibiting their diploma projects derive their initial experience from photography. Each one's practice has evolved over time and each one has arrived at utilizing a different medium and an original language of their own. No common theme is treated in the Simple Present Tense exhibition, it is rather shared physical and psychological conditions in which all the works were conceived. A situation of informational overload, insecurity, and extreme change in how we perceive physical reality produced strategies of radical honesty, flexibility, and the necessity for new precision. –>
29. 8. – 6. 9. 2020
Step AsideThe exhibition’s title Step Aside serves the exhibited artists as a metaphor, one which shows the desire to view the development of our civilization from new angles. This can mean conscious deceleration, comprehending the repercussions of our actions, attempting a sustainable future and the role of the artist within it, or drawing attention to marginalized social groups or phenomena.
8. 7. – 23. 8. 2020
EffortThe second part of the project dedicated to physical movement, dance and choreography in contemporary art interrogates physical exertion and the act of labor. The will and energy to move is not only connected with a number of functional mechanisms and the fulfillment of an ideal effectiveness in the field of the human body, but is also a landscape which is integrally political, a place of control and resistance, physical effects and their symbolic manifestations. The exhibiting artists meet in a network of structures suspended between these two polarities.
5. 3. – 28. 6. 2020
Choreography of ThoughtCan be physical movement a metaphor of our thought? Can it be understood as a possibility to relate to thinking processes different from their mere verbalisation? This project is built around these questions. The exhibition is accompanying series of lectures, screenings and discussions.

Icons and Mythologies: The Desire of ChangesThe exhibition focuses on the concept of engagement through the resumption of iconic figures and the construction of personal mythologies, such as the figure of Sun Ra, Patrice Lumumba or Angela Davis, and collective actions such as the revival of a Russian revolutionary song; a popular legend; the analysis of images controlled by a political regime.
