Václav Janoščík

Václav Janoščík (1985) is a pedagogue, theorist and curator currently teaching at the Academy of fine Arts (AVU) and Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague (UMPRUM). He edited several volumes on the problems of contemporary thinking, ranging from new materialism, speculative realism, acceleration and future studies to media theory (Object, 2015; Reinventing Horizons, 2016; Mind in Terrain, 2018). His own works include Nonsleeping (2018), which gives a highly personal account of social acceleration or abstraction, and Stretching the Contemporary, Detective Search for Shared World (2020), which tries to reinterpret and weaponise pop-culture. He currently curates a year-long exhibition cycle in Centre for Contemporary Arts, Prague.
