Aleš Palán: The role of books in action art


Books and catalogues have been part of numerous actions created by artist Kateřina Šedá. The aim of these publications is not just to document the action, and sometimes this documentary aspect is missing altogether. They are viewed as an integral part of the actions, as an independent unit that moves the “action” forward and offers opponency. Aleš Palán contributed to the publications Líšeň Profile and several actions in Bedřichovice. Šedá and Palán will not read from their books, but will present the audience their view on the role of books in action art, on their contents, and on the search for form.
