Curatorial and Press Trips

Through our support of curatorial trips, we seek to integrate the Czech contemporary art scene in global affairs. The response by foreign media helps us spread awareness of our country and culture.


Curatorial and Press Trips to the Czech Republic

43 curatorial trips
14 press trips
17 countries

Through our support of curatorial trips, we seek to integrate the Czech contemporary art scene into global affairs. The response of foreign media helps us spread awareness of our country and culture.

We invite journalists from around the world to important domestic shows, so that they can get to know the Czech cultural scene directly in the Czech Republic.

We cooperate in organising trips with domestic and foreign institutions, galleries, festivals, showcases with various artists, critics and theorists.

We supported press and curatorial trips for these domains and undertakings:
