More about us
A monumental international project THIS PLACE introduces images by twelve renowned photographers – Wendy Ewald, Martin Kollar, Josef Koudelka, Jungjin Lee, Gilles Peress, Fazal Sheikh, Stephen Shore, Rosalind Solomon, Thomas Struth, Jeff Wall, Nick Waplington, and author of the project Frederic Brenner – who created a diverse and fragmented portrait of Israel and the West Bank as a highly contested place with all its rifts and paradoxes.
The exhibition features a choice of 200 title pages of the French satirical weekly magazine Charlie Hebdo. Not only did the terrorists attack on its offices launched a huge wave of solidarity, it also initiated a discussion regarding the fundamental ideals of a free society: freedom of expression, freedom of religion, tolerance towards differenc. The intent of the exhibition is to allow the Czech public to form its own opinion of the magazine, its attitude, ideas, and humor.
The exhibition in the Art Archive at DOX examins the world of unofficial and semi-official art in Olomouc during the 1970s and 1980s. The exhibition is devoted to “Galerie v podloubí” (The Arcade Gallery) and exhibitions put on by the Music Theatre.
In January, the Art Archive presents early work by young artist Tereza Vostradovská. The book Obludárium [Monster Gallery] is a catalogue of beastly creatures from the author’s fantasy world created in the adult world.
