On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the Berlin Model, we are publishing a publication that recalls the beginnings of the artistic community that profiled itself around the Holešovice off-space gallery, one of the first of its kind in the Czech Republic, in the first decade of the second millennium. The publication guides the reader through more than 300 site-specific exhibitions and presents works by nearly 400 local and international artists, accompanied by interviews and thematic articles anchoring the artists’ work in contemporary discourse. The book is a cross-section of the progressive contemporary art scene, reflecting on the last ten years to the present. With regard to the most contemporary artistic tendencies, the publication Model aspires to look into the near future, as we believe that it is art that can help us seek a better setting for society.
“The forthcoming publication should therefore not be a mere catalogue mapping a decade of one institution’s operation, but at the same time a kind of probe into the recent artistic events taking place at the intersection of its diverse positions.”
