Temporary Structures

Temporary Structures is PLATO’s year-long project when the city gallery’s backup facilities in the former Bauhaus are created by artists. Instead of traditional exhibitions, we present a library, a bistro, a shop, a cinema and a garden as works of art.

Artists: Than Hussein Clark, Zuza Golińska, Julia Gryboś, Klára Hosnedlová, Milan Houser, Matyáš Chochola, Stéphanie Lagarde, Daria Melnikova, Marge Monko, Wesley Meuris, Dominika Olszowy, Atelier Partero, Johana Pošová, Rustan Söderling, Jan Šerých, Barbora Zentková, Martin Zet

Curators: Jakub Adamec, Daniela & Linda Dostálková, Michal Novotný, Marek Pokorný


An area of almost 5000 m2 in an empty hobby-market to be used temporarily as a gallery. These initial conditions provoked us to make an experiment in collaboration with artists. Instead of traditional exhibitions we present the gallery’s essential backup facilities, which can be used for at least a few years, until PLATO finally moves to its permanent location in the reconstructed city slaughterhouse.

We have invited artists from the Czech Republic and around the world to take part in the experiment and help us build PLATO’s infrastructure in the course of 2018 and 2019 – gradually, over several subsequent stages of the Temporary Structures project.
