Sand in the Gears
Opening 17/6/2020 from 4 to 9 pm

During the opening DJ set of contemporary experimental music performed by Gin&Platonic djs in the garden.

A Heap Made of a Grain of Sand
A four-day retreat on non-growth strategies and deceleration processes.

The concept of the exhibition is that of a processual project: some works will be ready for the exhibition opening while others will be made during the workshop and will reflect its course and outputs. The exhibition will keep growing until the beginning of July when it should reach its final shape.

Special thanks to the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic and Moravian-Silesian Region.
