I was invited to the artist-in-residence program of quartier21 for two months, in November and December 2006. Being an art critic and an independent curator from Prague, I was particulary interested in learning more about the contemporary Austrian art scene. Thanks to Tranzit foundation, which kindly covered my stay at MQ Vienna, I visited places such as Secession, Generali Foundation, Academy of Fine Arts, MAK and many others.
I have not only learned a lot more about cultural institutions and independent galleries in Vienna - especially visiting exhibitions and attending art events and lectures - I also had enough time to continue my research on the crossroads between different fields of contemporary visual culture. The aim of my PhD project is to map contemporary artists’ endeavors to test stereotyped functions.
I am also grateful that I could make a public presentation of selected Czech artists in the Oval Halle in q21. Hereby I would like to give many thanks to all the people in q21 for their personal and technical support.
