“Report on the Construction of a Spaceship Module” co-curators Vít Havránek and Georg Schöllhammer will be in conversation with artists Eva Kot’átková and Boris Ondreička about their recent projects.

Eva Kot’átková’s practice includes works on paper, performances, sculptures, and installations. She uses these forms to examine how social norms and propaganda can restrict the individual. Kot’átková’s installations, which she has called “archives” or “databases,” often present a variety of found and altered objects alongside textual or recorded stories. Kot’átková studied at the Academy of Fine Arts and the Academy of Applied Arts in Prague, at the San Francisco Art Institute, and the Akademie der bildenden Künste in Vienna. Since 2009, she has been doing her doctoral studies at the Academy of Applied Arts in Prague. In 2007, Kot’átková won the J. Chalupecký Award for Young Artists and the J. Hlávka Award. Her most significant group exhibitions include the 56th Venice Bienniale in 2013, the Liverpool Biennial in 2010, and the 18th Biennale of Sydney in 2012.

Boris Ondreička was project leader from 2003 to 2012. He is an artist, poet, occasional singer, and communication solutioner based in Bratislava. He has exhibited at numerous solo and group exhibitions, which include “Unruhe der Form” (2013) and “Junge Szene,” Secession, Vienna; Manifesta 2, CPCA, Luxembourg; Egon Grabstein’s “Demon.straat 00,” Attachment+, Kunsthalle Lophem, Belgium; “Generation Z,” MoMA P.S.1, NYC; “Midnight Walkers – City Sleepers,” W139, Amsterdam; “Landscape,” BAK, Utrecht; “Radiodays,” De Appel, Amsterdam; “Projekt Migration,” Kölnischer Kunstverein Cologne; and the 2005 Venice Biennale; etc.
