Pavel Büchler: Labour in Vain

The catalogue for the Labour in Vain exhibition by Czech émigré Pavel Büchler presented a complete selection of his work for the first time in the Czech Republic. The exhibition was dominated by several key works directly or indirectly inspired by Franz Kafka, one being The Castle, which along with a work entitled The List formed the exhibition’s conceptual axis. Other exhibited works also referred to works and figures from modern art, literature, politics, and philosophy, and the entire selection was bound to the artist’s interest in “faulty reading” as a method of revealing random or unintended poetry in generally familiar cultural material.

The Future of the Future

The goal of the exhibition The Future of the Future was to show how artists from various fields, countries, and generations are searching for a more balanced relationship between the past and the future – in other words, to show how a different future is being born today, one that signals social and cultural change. The exhibition’s intent was to present various forms of different understanding, different future, as it is being born and within the context of the conviction that one cannot exist without the other. The exhibition featured artists Jochen Gerz, Barbara Holub, Norman Klein, Marysia Lewandowska & Neil Cummings, Die Planung / A Terv, Terreform ONE.

José-Maria Cano: Welcome to Capitalism!

Spanish painter José-Maria Cano’s most extensive exhibition, Welcome to Capitalism!, which lent its name to the DOX Centre’s inaugural exhibition, also created a pregnant context for the centre’s opening, which is the connection between the world of art and the world of the media and capital. The exhibition consisted of several sets of images dealing with the symbolism of the world of financial transactions affecting various areas of our lives.
