Artists-in-Residence within MEETING BRNO 2018

Also this year three foreign Artists in Residence will come to participate in the festival. They will stay in Brno for a whole month and cooperate with various institutions. The stay of the artists is realized via the residential programme of the Brno House of Arts / Brno Artists in Residence supported by the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic, the City of Brno and the South Moravian Region.

JOHANNES HOFFMANN

The playwright and actor born in Graz studies a transdisciplinary programme at the Zurich University of Arts today. In his literary works he deals with Europeans’ fear of the loss of their identity, the influence of memory on our present and future, and the ongoing social changes. He is currently working on a literary project titled “Stripping Skin” where he artistically processes his parents’ memories into a rhythmic text. In the same way, he will work with Brno citizens’ memories of their own past during the festival residence and will present the result during a dedicated evening event.

DANIEL HÜTTLER

DANIEL HÜTTLER

An artist from Vienna moved to Mexico City with his parents early in his age, to return home after many years to study art. During his Brno residence, he will realize his CCCC - Centre for Cybernetic Culture Circulation project. Galerie 99 in the Brno House of Art will become a platform for debates, exhibitions and performances by artists from Austria, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary. They will ask questions in an artistic dialogue about the common past and present. The author’s creative intent is to overcome, through social interaction, the various barriers that appear when we are mere "observers" of art.
