Within another presentation of this year’s Jiří Chalupecký Award, a project “Living Library” by Pavel Sterec will be introduced this time in an unusual setting of Koněprusy Caves. A phenomenon of “living library” arose from the need for a personal meeting which is evidently capable of deepening empathy among the participants. Group for the meeting consists of five scientists from leading research institutes in the Czech Republic. Art is shown to people and people are shown to art The work of this year’s five finalists will be presented for the first time to the public in accordance with the idea of the theoretician and art critic Jindřich Chalupecký who claimed that art is shown to people and people are shown to art. The finalists of the 22nd year of the Jindřich Chalupecký Award will be gradually introduced within a running event entitled 5 Finalists, 5 Months, 5 Places. In the course of five months the artists will display their work in different forms at five selected places in five different ways. „The aim is to show the public the best that is being created within our art platform, to show current tendencies and how artists reflect the contemporary situation,“ says Lenka Lindaurová, a member of the Jindřich Chalupecký Society.
