Objective of the Project

The aim of the Art-Research Bridge cooperation project between FFA BUT Brno and The School of Humanities of the University of Iceland was to coordinate artistic and theoretical research conducted by teachers and students working on topics related to Media Art and Digital Culture, which interconnects the scientific and humanities fields of both universities. The project aimed to continue with the previously established cooperation between the National Gallery of Reykjavik, their newly opened research laboratory, the Vasulka Chamber and the evolving Vasulka Kitchen project at FFA BUT, which was established within the framework of the faculty's expanding media archive. The project proposed to support academic participation at conferences and meetings planned in both cities. The conference in Reykjavik took place at the Vasulka Chamber, a department of the National Gallery, attended by academic participants. In Brno, the conference was guaranteed by FFA BUT and the Media Archive.
