Letter of motivation

For the past three years I’ve focused on social reflections of the past. I’ve created several videos drawing from found film footage. My goal is to grasp and newly consider our views of ourselves: to do away with the schemas connected with our perceptions of the past. I live in Prague and am anchored in the reality here. What could be better than to look at my experience from a distance? And why not from a neighbouring country? Vienna could be the ideal place.

Zbynìk Baladrán


During two monts of my residence in MQ i worked on video project called screnplay/movie. I took various articles and news published press agencies on internet. I used short stories like motive for writing of screenplays. Next step was film it. I used writed script like part of video.

There is no more screenplay and not yet film.
I finished three videofilms with common architectonical topic: Tent, Pyramid, Container.

Next information about my actual work:
