Návštěva is an independent project aiming to present contemporary art in relation to contemporary society. It presents works, artists, strategies and practices that actively inhabit existing space. Critical thinking and strategies revitalize artists' influence and responsibility to their living environment, shared with others of the society: these are the themes that návštěva exerts to explore.
Project doesn't concentrate mainly on contemporary art venues, therefore isn't tied to one single space; the idea is rather to travel from one place to another, between countries, cities and nations. However its' focus is on running it in public spaces such as schools, cinemas theatres or galleries.
The only firm spot of project is this website containing archive of interviews with presented artists and events. As project's name suggests, Návštěva ("the visit" in Czech) is about sharing, connecting and exploring. Interconnecting local audience with remote artists that otherwise might be hardly knowable due to distances or other boundaries. Therefore, project intends to present their work in a way which allows experiencing their work in a wider context, to comprehend it and experience. In other words: to arrange a visit.
