„Ourselves animals, active, predators, we look (naturally enough) for an active, predatory,
communicative art; and when we find it, we recognise it. The development of this power of recognition and the skills of appreciation is a recent and glorious achievement. But we are only at the beginning of our age of discovery. We have not yet lifted our eyes to the vaster horizons before us.“
Ursula K. Le Guin: The Author of the Acacia Seeds
The setting of the third year of the ARTakeaway project are the premises of The setting of the third year of the ARTakeaway project are the premises of metro stations Můstek and Muzeum. In light of the events of the last two years, we’ve decided to focus on utopian and naïve worlds.
Just like futurism projected worlds to come dominated by technology, we would like to focus on future worlds reigned by the principle of harmony and functional community life – we mainly draw inspiration from the animal and plant kingdoms. Metro stations can also be used as a shelter in case of potential catastrophe, but we want to use them to create a world from which you don’t want to hide.
The form of the exhibition will be unconventional. The passers-by may walk through it as through a story that is told step by step and available on our website or via QR codes displayed on site. The story will work as a guide, a framework in which the individual pieces are strung up to compose the whole story.
