The Friends of the House of Arts
The Friends of the Brno House of Arts is an association of professionally active artists, curators and theoreticians sharing a steady interest in contemporary art. At present, the association focuses mainly on publishing activities, responding, sometimes only loosely, to the House of Arts exhibitions, programme and other activities. The association is engaged in publishing exhibition catalogues, monographs and poetry books of artists associated with the city of Brno; it also organises programmes that promote these publications.
The association was founded in 1997 and it originally developed independent activities related to fine arts, architecture, music and alternative artistic expressions. Due to the current rich programme of the House of Arts, but its limited possibilities to publish, the association has gradually focused on editorial work that helps to permanently record, present, and promote the unique works of art presented there and place them in an art historical context. Since 2015, the Friends of the Brno House of Arts have published, in cooperation with various partners, the following books: a monograph of the photographer Marie Kratochvílová, the proceedings from a colloquium accompanying the exhibition of Dalibor Chatrný I Am Space, the book MomentUm by Milan Kreuzieger and Jana Horáková, the companion book to the exhibition of Martin Zet Miloš Zet. Walls, Plinths and Mock-ups, and also Neutilitární škola [Non-utilitarian School] by Josef Daněk and Blahoslav Rozbořil. It co-published the book Obrazy a předobrazy [Paintings and Presages] by Karel Císař. The publication of a periodical dedicated to the reflection and documentation of the activities of the House of Arts is currently in preparation. All are available in the bookshop.
