Motto: In an age when growing numbers of people tend to think dangerously alike, art´s capacity to suspend, even for a moment, our habitual ways of seeing may well prove to be of its greatest value.

The exhibition is based on a comparison of three famous dystopian visions of the future as described by Aldous Huxley (Brave New World), George Orwell (1984) and Ray Bradbury (Fahrenheit 451), with the current social situation. The work of more than twenty contemporary artists from around the world working with subject matter related to surveillance, the consumer society, and the media world has the same warning message. Alas, it refers to a future that has already arrived…
Architectural space relates to the human body and its movement, and its perception can be fooled, manipulated, or affected with visual effects. This exhibition of the work of designer Jiří Pelcl is a dialogue between monumental objects and small items. The exhibition’s main motif is proportion to reality, a scale that is relative, relational.
The (DIS)PLACE exhibition is the culmination of a project intended for students of post-secondary art schools in the field of photography, prepared by DOX as part of the attendant programme for the THIS PLACE exhibition, which had its world premiere at DOX in 2014. To “search for and define the (NON)PLACE of the individual in contemporary society” is the basic idea of the project.
Ladislav Daněk’s Ticket book, on exhibit this month at Art Archive at DOX (7 Sept 2015 – 4 Oct 2015), is a peculiar, contradictory example of his drawing work, which forms an advanced visual philosophy. The book is based on lottery tickets that map out the order of numbers drawn in the Sportka lottery from 1985 until the change in its drawing system at the beginning of the 1990s.
“Keret House” by Polish architect Jakub Szczęsny, is such a noteworthy project that the Museum of Modern Art in New York (MoMA) recently included a model of it in its collection of contemporary architecture collection. The exhibition at DOX gives viewers the opportunity to familiarize themselves with this project, along with other recent Szczęsny' s works.
