••• ℐ𝓉’𝓈 𝒜𝓁𝓁 𝒜𝒷𝑜𝓊𝓉 ℰ𝒹𝓊𝒸𝒶𝓉𝒾𝑜𝓃 will establish a temporary university from June 25th to 27th in Studio ALTA in Prague. The public will be able to meet over 20 artists, artistic collectives and creative practitioners there whose “art work” functions as an umbrella for multilayered practices. But they won’t be teaching art, at least not directly. In the course of the three days, the invited participants will share their knowledge and skills from extra-art fields. The aim of the university is to offer a different perspective to the presented topics as well as a possibility of a fluidly hierarchical (self)educational system, as opposed to a maximized expertise in isolated sub-fields.
The artists, together with the curators, Petr Dlouhý and Magdalena J. Härtelova, dream of the temporary university as a radical (aka containing the potential for change) space, in which we use our experiences from galleries and stages to transform our ideas of classrooms and lecture halls: A space, in which we co-create our own curriculum, cannon, into a system built on the principle of sharing (instead of lecturing) and imagination (instead of dogma).
ℐ𝓉’𝓈 𝒜𝓁𝓁 𝒜𝒷𝑜𝓊𝓉 ℰ𝒹𝓊𝒸𝒶𝓉𝒾𝑜𝓃 builds on the future-changing potential of collective finding, passing on, and establishing of knowledge, asking ourselves: What knowledge do we need in order to be able to create together a future that is anti-racist, feminist, non-heteronormative, that doesn’t exploit neither the natural environment nor human labor, a future that doesn’t discriminate on the basis of physical abilities, age or financial circumstances? What special knowledge do we want to spread for this future? What is the future occupation we are preparing ourselves for right now?

𝗔𝗰𝗰𝗲𝘀𝘀𝗶𝗯𝗶𝗹𝗶𝘁𝘆 𝗱𝗲𝘁𝗮𝗶𝗹𝘀 𝗳𝗼𝗿 Studio ALTA:
- The event is free of charge.
- To enter the event, all visitors must present a negative antigen test or confirmation of vaccination, or a statutory declaration of regular company testing or confirmation from a general practitioner that visitor had covid in the past month.
- The garden and ground floor are accessible without steps. There are barrier-free bathrooms on the property. Upon previous notification, we can offer guidance and assistance from volunteers, who can lead people to rooms (or carry a wheelchair up the stairs to the second floor). There will be Studio ALTA production on site that has a basic volunteer training and will be there to assist. For people using electric wheelchair, only the ground floor and the garden are accessible. With advanced notice, we will be happy to relocate classes to rooms that will be easily accessible for you.
