What is artistic research and why does it exist? What forms does artistic research take on abroad and here, in the Czech Republic? Is artistic research a fully-fledged scientific discipline, or is it just a currently popular short-term trend? ArteActa’s editors and members of the magazine’s editorial board, together with other experts in the field, will try to answer all of these questions.

The Linhart Foundation and NoD Gallery in cooperation with Artedu.cz have prepared another titbit. This time you can enjoy a “Little Indian” pastry with Vladimír Kokolia and Kateřina Šedá. What is it going to be about?
Kateřina Šedá studied with Kokolia for six years. He claims he has never taught her. Katka’s diaries from that period reflect the dilemma well-known to young artists: not let oneself be influenced – and not to miss any influence. A teacher and a student, two artists of international renown, two friends will get together and talk about what they believe in, what they do for it, and whether or not it is only their own concern. And why did each of them elaborate their own “Dictionaries”, issued as a joint publication just now by the AVU Publishing House. Moderated by Tereza Jindrová.

The Jury Statement
Kateřina Šedá is one of the most interesting contemporary artists. Her projects have an outreach in the public space, and first and foremost directly influence the public life. The purpose of architecture is to provide a space framework for the most varied manifestations of life. Analogically, the purpose of public space is to enable the most varied manifestations of public life.
Josef Pleskot, one of the jury members, says: What Kateřina Šedá does is not architecture. Kateřina is concerned with human relationships, and this is where architecture grows up from. This is an extremely important activity, and architects should know about it. The jury have decided to use the freedom granted by the generous rules of the competition, and to award for the first time in history, regardless the title “Architect of the Year”, the prize to someone who did not graduate from a school of architecture. It is because they hold the work of Kateřina Šedá in high esteem and they hope that this award will contribute to spread the information about her activities.

The final stage – on June 3, 2017! Czech artist Kateřina Šedá works on the project in Slavutych, which involves as many inhabitants as possible applying for a visa, so that the city may get to the Guinness Book of Records. Moreover, one citizen will be selected from each hundred applications, and he or she will receive an official invitation from the Czech Republic including the covering of all costs of travel and accommodation. It will happen as follows: All the citizens of Slavutych will receive an official invitation from Kateřina Šedá to take part in a common cultural event in the Czech Republic. Then they will fill in the visa applications, and officially submit them, with the attached photographs, on June 3, 2017, on the Slavutych City Day. The event will constitute one of the highlights of the celebrations that have a long tradition in the city. The record will then get the Book of Records readers and fans from all over the world to know about Slavutych city. Slavutych may become a place that will inspire other cities around the world. A city that proves how necessary it is to do something together.
