9.3.2015 Exhibition in Grazu

In the industrial suburb of Ústí nad Labem (CZ), a large number of art projects have been carried out under the patronage of the Faculty of Art and Design of the Jan Evangelista Purkyně University (FAD/UJEP) since the 1990s. The district in focus is called Předlice. It is marked by long-term deprivation, from which the local population, mostly Romani inhabitants, suffers strongly. Diverse forms of collaborative and participatory interventions, initiated by various artists, scholars, and students, have led to numerous cooperations with the local inhabitants. The exhibition presents a selection of works and interventions that have been realised in Předlice and discusses the possibilities and limitations of artistic work within peripheric social contexts of exclusion.

In cooperation with the Faculty of Art and Design of the Jan Evangelista Purkyně University (FAD/UJEP)
