Guest show by FAMU Prague
A summer sampler of the current art production of the students of the Department of Photography at the FAMU school, Prague, presents a kaleidoscopic probe into approaches to the medium of photography, technical photography, moving images and other related disciplines. Without unnecessary descriptiveness, one can identify the appropriation and ironising of YouTube aesthetics, the exploitation of personal mythology and family histories, the recycling of pop-culture references and the creation of objects in which photographic experience blends with the starting points of the contemporary theory. Contemporary, fresh works of art, not students' and definitely not childish or slaves' works of art, as the name of the presentation could misleadingly indicate, referring to a pun that is hard to resist.
