The exhibition presents works by students and graduates of the Centre for Audiovisual Studies at FAMU. CAS is a place for art students to develop a practice in making moving image works beyond cinema. As this exhibition shows, CAS does not point to a single type of thinking or production, but it is an open and flexible space to share differing opinions of what constitutes important knowledge or ‘an education’.
The exhibition is divided into a number of free thematic units. Autonomous cinema experiments by Janda, Kindernay, Pešek; performing the archive / the database as medium – with works by Ouradova, Moralesova; video essays – by Knapp, Dolezalkova; interventions into online social space – Abraham and Matvija; film/digital dichotomies / explorations of the materiality of the medium by Strnad, Tymal, and code based projects by Pešek; works in the street / public space – Knapp and Turner; video installation – Ben Horin, Svarcova, Machajova; explorations of time – Petrikova & cinema space – Svarcova; art/science/pataphysical research by Vavrečka, Kindernay, Rous, Smitmajer, Dvorak; personal documentary – Krejcova; Bazantova‘s abject cinema and Kalivoda‘s creation, no, destruction of the image.
