House-Studio-Object-Cenotaph of Stano Filko
Boris Ondreička 


Please note that the lecture is availiable in English

Boris Ondreička has worked with Filko several times and their work were shown side by side in various constellations, last year, he curated an exhibition in Brno as well. Filko’s companion will address questions around producing art in Filko’s universe in a walkthrough. How can one imagine a collaboration with Filko, how did the studio operation work in the Snečienkova studio? How does his approach to the work function methodically? Ondreička can probably answer better than no one else the question of what can be fascinating for artists today about Filko’s artistic practice and why he can be understood as an artist’s artist.
