Out of the Frame: Art, Architecture and Media in Uncertain Social Contexts


Auditorium, Brno House of Arts, Malinovského námÄ›stí 2, Brno


A colloquium connecting the two parallel projects by the Brno House of Arts – the exhibition Laterna Magika and the international show of art in public spaces BAO – follows the common theme of the role of art and architecture from the second half of the 20th century and its protection. It is devoted to the effects of the changes in social status quo, when art can digress from its original coordinates and conveys the “endless dilemma” stemming from the demand for artistic autonomy on the one hand and the social function of art on the other.
