Michal Novotný: Artists. Just charlatans. Boast about their independence.

  1. PLATO, Porážková 26

Recommended admission fee 30 CZK

The lecture is connected with the exhibitions of Temporary Structures (display).


A lecture on the subject of the autonomy of a work of art and the idea of art independent of political, economic and social influences.

The lecture examines the validity of this proposition and whether it has ever been fulfilled, as well as in what way it might have influenced the perception of visual art. In today’s context, the lecture will present the current revival of emotional and romantic trends, with emphasis on expression and communication at levels different from the mental and intellectual ones.
