INSTITUT INSTITUT is an association of authors working in various fields of art. We create individually and collectively and in sub-groups or with externalities, according to the current need or idea, without precedents. But each of us is also working on one's own things. However, others, if the situation permits, may not be able to resist curiosity, criticism or participation. Everyone can make use of the theoretical, practical or organisational skills of others. We also represent the artists as an institution and also as a production group and publisher. We have our own library (also a storage, individual studios and many detached workplaces). We collaborate with other institutions, artists and researchers. We support emerging artists, critical thinking, principles of humanism and fun.
We work mainly, but not principally, in contemporary art, dance, performance, text, experimental scenic forms and site-specific, music, sound and moving image.
The purpose of this platform is to support the creation, curation and presentation of individual, collective and external projects alongside discussion and open peer-to-peer critique. The group brings together significant personalities, and for some of the more introverted people, being part of a collective may not be a natural way of functioning, but that's what it's all about too. We're not a sect, probably. You are!
We were founded in 2017 and since 2018 we have been operating as a civic association with official representation in Slovakia and the Czech Republic (since 2019). We are mainly based in Brno, partly in Bratislava, Berlin and Prague. Official statutes here.
