FF #12 | Extremely Normal
— Festival opening


Start: Opening: 6 pm Fotograf Gallery
Tereza Rudolf, Elisabeth Pichler, Markéta Mansfieldová

The exhibition “Extremely Normal” is dedicated to the ambivalence of visual representations of far-right violence.

Start: 30. 6. - 6 pm

Measurement Terror: 1392 Hours of an Exhibition, open for 237 of Those


Start: 14. 4. od 19:00
Tereza Rudolf a Vojtěch Märc

The figure of the measurer is inseparably tied to the modern cultural tradition, particularly from the 19th century onwards. A male figure moves through the landscape, and on his back lies the “weight” of the precise measurement of reality. One of the ways in which photography became historically most useful was as a tool of scientific measurement, where it was to ensure the desired precision and objectivity. Measurement, often aided by photographic technologies, thus plays an essential role in modernity and bears a similar load. The world must first be measured so that it can be cut up and sold.
