Šeinovy transformace Janáčkových nápěvků představují jeden z potenciálně možných způsobů nahlížení, čtení, interpretací a reinterpretací těchto svébytných dokumentů. Některé listy graficky zmnožují jednotlivé expresívní výrazy v řetězcích přepisů, kdy se písmo postupně ztrácí a znovuobjevuje v nových a nových variacích, původní zvukový impulz je rozvíjen v obrazových situacích, jež lze číst opět sluchově. Podoby řeči jsou tu znovu a jinak ohledávány někdy pomocí konfrontace psaného obrazotextu s kolážovanými útržky původních Janáčkových notací a textů, nebo též s obrazy podnětů, k nimž se některé původní nápěvky vztahují – jako oživené předměty (židle, dveře), petrifikované notace projevů živých bytostí (ptáci, lidé) či bytostí imaginárních a halucinativních – například čert. Výsledné transformace lze vnímat jako předmětné básně, jako expresívní obrazotext a také, nikoliv v poslední míře, jako svébytné partitury.
Odkazy ke konkrétním Janáčkovým nápěvkům jsou vždy přesně uvedeny, respektují současný systém jejich archivace a tak je v každém případě možné posoudit, jaký je konkrétní vztah mezi původním notačním záznamem a jazykově předmětným rozezněním v nových sonických obrazoprostorech. Možné partiturní způsoby nástrojových interpretací i čtení modů, směrových orientací, temp, času a ech jsou pak zcela volné.

PAO – A polyphony of voices
17.11. – 19.11.2017 | ROM for kunst og arkitektur, Maridalsveien 3, 0178, Oslo


The 5th-anniversary edition of PAO Festival, Oslo´s only yearly international contemporary performance art festival, will once again take place in November this year at ROM. The anniversary was marked with an open call receiving 168 applications from all over the world. During the process of selecting the 12 artists, a variety of issues were uncovered, all with an interconnected common thread which brought together this year's constellation of artists.

During the festival the artists will reveal their interpretations of society in diverse and unique ways. We will see concerns ranging from the increased contrasts between technology and nature, how information flows through social media, communication, identity issues and the transformation of places and cultures, climate change and political turbulence.

When looking at the works for open call, many questions arised:
How are artists affected by current political climates and social structures in their everyday lives and how do they convey this in their work?
How do artists reflect on the new contemporary political unrest?
How are artists expressing the gap between reality versus technology and social media?
How are they reacting to climate change and environmental threats?

During the PAO Festival 2017, we hope to find some answers and perhaps even more questions.

CS CONCEPTUAL ART OF THE 70s
11.10.2017 - 13.01.2018 | FAIT Gallery, Ve Vaňkovce 2, Brno, Czech Republic

Curators: Beata Jablonská, Denisa Kujelová and Jana Písaříková

The start of conceptual art in the early 1970s meant a shift of interest from the aesthetic and material qualities of the work to it‘s personal, social, historical and often even theoretical context. Unlike the Western art scenes, the conceptual thinking of the Czechoslovak author‘s was motivated by a more personal search for the essence of the relationship between the artist and the art on both an artistic and a political-ethical level and also social, even ecological, level. Thus the conceptual turn was not perceived only through it’s dematerialisation and iconoclastic efforts, but above all as a utopian escape to the official and state-controlled culture. It gave the artists free space which they used in a wide range of media and themes.

The CS CONCEPTUAL ART OF THE 70s exhibition focuses on monitoring trends that have been applied to the art of ideas, records, projects and events. It will present various forms of conceptual work with drawings and photographs as well as the status of the concept devoted to the relation of the script and the image, or it will also focus on futuristic, action and environmental projects. Rather than creating an historic overview of the conceptual thinking of the 1970s the exhibition will be a diverse mosaic that illustrates the interdependence of Czech and Slovak art through a wide range of authors. Therefore the project is unique in its effort to point out the joint starting point of the art scene, that has been reflected as two separate units since the split of Czechoslovakia.

CRASHTEST 7: RECONSTRUCTION AVU 93/94
13.06.2017- 07.07.2017 | Topičův salon, Prague

The central position within this curatorial project is the effort to retrospectively reconstruct a set of diploma theses of students and theirs professors, nowadays already established artists who finished their studies at the Prague Academy of Fine Arts in the 1993-1994 academic year.The aim of this exhibition is to contribute to several earlier attempts to re-evaluate the current art framework of the 1990s. It is based on the belief that it is precisely the presence of a particular article of back-chained history that can give rise to a new space for further contextualisation of the input works, especially in the level of the personal stories of their creators. In pursuing the most objective approach, individual works of art are viewed as certain historical documents, not surpassing the authenticity of other artefacts presented (text and pictorial documentation), fragmentarily referring to the sometimes non-existent works.

Graduates and their teachers – Academy of Fine Arts in Prague 93/94: Karel Bartacek, Michal Bielicky, Petr Budek, Hugo Demartini, Bedrich Dlouhy, Quan Do Manh, Milena Dopitova, Pavel Doskocil, Michal Fiala, Rene Habl, Vladimir Hanus, Frantisek Hodonsky, Petr Horacek, Irena Juzova, Stanislav Kolibal, Cyril Kozak, Miroslav Krawczuk, Jiri Lhota, Marek Ludnila, Lubomira Kmetova, Milan Knizak, Jan Kotik, Karel Malich, Jiri Mateju, Anna Neborova, Karel Nepras, Miroslav Panek, Petr Pisarik, Emil Prikryl, Tomas Rygl, Milos Sejn, Petr Siegl, Jiri Sopko, Nikolaj Stanev, Jakub Stretti, Anna Svobodova, Martin Simek, Petr Strojdl, Jitka Svobodova, Petr Travnicek, Daniel Trubac, Ales Vesely, Katerina Vincourova

Bubbles are not
kindly regarded in these days.
They are associated with many of our current world's issues: social
injustice, a lack of solidarity, rising prices, polluted water... 
Our world bubbles, the earth is a bubble, and
we are in crisis. However, there is the aesthetic and life-preserving
potential of the bubble: it is an equally rich metaphor for isolation
and ignorance as it is for nurturance, safety and protection, and evenwwww.lapsody2017.com
more so for perfection and effervescence. A multitude of bubbles might
merge, expand, form a foam, or collide, burst and disappear.
For this year’s LAPSody, we invite experts and contributors from all
field to join The Bubble. Come explore the political, social,
environmental, philosophical, scientific and performative potential of
the bubble as a discursive and physical phenomenon.
We especially welcome proposals featuring non-conventional forms of
presentation, and are happy to facilitate these, for example lecture
installations, post-truth performances, site specific discussions,
phlegmatic workshops and one-on-one-situations.
LAPSody festival & conference will be taking place in the Theatre
Academy Helsinki as well at different outdoor and indoor sites around
the city of Helsinki. Other venues of LAPSody are currently being
negotiated and will be announced in the beginning of the year 2017.

FoR mE iT’S tOO RAndOm is an allegory of performance. It represents an effort in pure beauty, while doing away with personal ballast and dissolving the ego – one of the most independent and carefully constructed personal components of the majority of artists-performers. Part of this event will be the Festival’s closing ceremony and the handing over awards in the jubilee tenth year of the Other Visions section.
The former Jesuit College is the location of the Art Centre of Palacký University. Lecture halls, workrooms and conference halls are located in this spatial baroque complex which consists of five art departments from the Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Education. The Art Centre is involved in everyday cultural and artistic life. Inhabitants of Olomouc as well as tourists see film and theatre performances and concerts in the Corpus Christi Chapel and exhibitions installed in the large corridors.
Konvikt is accessible from Denisova Street. If you travel by tram, the Náměstí Republiky stop is not far away.

Troublemakers: The Story of Land Art, 2015 / 68:00 – Set in the desolate desert spaces of the American southwest, the film unearths the history of land art during the tumultuous late 1960s and early 1970s. Troublemakers is ultimately a story of renegades and firebrands all willing to risk their future careers on radical change and experimentation-a marked contrast to the hyper-speculative contemporary art world of today. Featuring rare interviews with a veritable who's who of American Art of the twentieth century. – Vito Acconci, Carl Andre, Germano Celant, Paula Cooper, Walter de Maria, Virginia Dwan, Gianfranco Gorgoni, Michael Heizer, Nancy Holt, Dennis Oppenheim, Charles Ross, Pamela Sharp, Robert Smithson, Harald Szeemann, Lawrence Weiner

Homeostasis / 23:00 – Homeostasis is a film essay devoted to the morphology of the landscape under the Ore Mountains in the North Bohemian Region. The film is composed of material that was captured during the Frontiers of Solitude International Symposium held in autumn 2017. – Milos Vojtechovsky, Dominik Zizka, Vladimir Turner, Michal Kindernay

ECHOES, 1979 / 5:19 / Milos Sejn – A reflection of sunbeams on water surface, cast on a rock. The hallucinatory gazing at one place for a long time. Digital transfer of a Super8 colour film.
