Born in 1974, the visual artist Tomáš Svoboda is known primarily as 'that guy who works with film'. And that's an accurate definition, given that last year he followed up on his previous work (a video series, animation, installations and performances looking at the diverse aspects of our co-existence with the medium of film) with a standard, full-length film.
But Svoboda - the latest speaker in Prague College's flagship Visiting Artists and Lecture Series - is emphatic that the the focus of his work is not film as such, but our 'life'; no matter how broad and vague that term may seem. More specifically, the way in which our life passes in film: how it influences our understanding of reality, of actions, and how it creates an outline for interpersonal communications.
Visiting Artist events happen on Thursdays at Bishop's Court, the college's studio space in Prague 1. All are welcome to attend.
