ROUGH AND TENDER TRAILER

Predstavte si, že jedného dňa odrazu zistíte, že už nie ste tým, čím ste boli. This was also experienced by the hero of our film from Slovakia and Moravia - which hurt "normal". One day of reflection they found that the dianie in our head already controlled niekto iný - akési alter ego.

Rough and harsh – the life stories of our heroes (protagonists) stand sa to vidieť, pretože nikto nevie, or accidentally one day does not come to life and in us mysterious alter ego ...

The Brno studio KREAT,  Kunštát Pro Futuroo.p.s., was launched in September 2012. The first year of the studio's work culminated in the organization of an international art workshop with partner studios from Switzerland and Belgium, which took place in parallel with the Art for Everyone workshop. The content of the workshop was a joint work on the artistic accompaniment of Guillaume Apollinaire's collection of poems Bestiary or Orpheus' Procession. According to their abilities, participants could work with art techniques such as drawing, painting, graphics (printing from a height, or printing from depth). A selection of works and a jointly created large-format painting was exhibited in the building of Česká spořitelna at Jánská 6. , together with the works of these three studios.

Art Brut Brno - opening

The exhibition Art brut Brno was opened in the exhibition premises of Česká spořitelna in Jánská Street in Brno on 11 November 2019. It will run until the end of January 2020. The phrase "art brut" (raw art) was first used by the French painter and sculptor Jean Dubuffet in 1945. He described the work of authors who were outside the normal social norm – people with mental disorders or those who for some reason were excluded from the majority society. The exhibition was held under the auspices of the Mayor of Brno, Markéta Vaňková, and the guest at the opening was Lydie Zukalová from the Foreign Department of the Brno City Hall.

BEST OF ART BRUT

Art brut is an artistic expression that is closely connected with the fate of its creators. The authors are not professional artists, they are people with psychological problems or mental disorders. Society often stigmatizes people who suffer from mental illness without realizing what a rich inner life they have and how many other talents and creativity are hidden in them. The aim of the exhibition is to publicly present works that were created within the art therapy studio: Gallery Nezábudka, in the home environment and in other civic associations. The Best of Art Brut exhibition presents about 30 Slovak authors whose works were selected by the curators for presentation in the chamber space of the Čin Čin Gallery, where it was first presented in May. Part of the presented works comes from private collections. As the subtitle of the exhibition states: "We are here and there is a world that we create", the authors give an honest, authentic testimony about themselves and their own world. This statement is not distorted by any professional criteria, it is based on one's own motives and desire to express oneself.
