THE MAKING OF KUNSTHALLE PRAHA
CURATORIAL RESIDENCY AT DELFINA FOUNDATION
A four-week stay in London awaits curator Jen Kratochvil from the end of May. At the Delfina Foundation's headquarters near Buckingham Palace, he will take part in the Collecting as Practice thematic programme, which addresses collecting politics, psychology and philosophy, and the role of collectors and artists focusing on collections and archives.
