Presented at the Foundation and Center for Contemporary Art (FCCA) in Prague, Apparatus 2.0: The Unreliable Library is an exhibition resulting from a multilevel collaboration between artists and organizers from Prague and New York City. Taking place in the reconstructed FCCA library, the exhibition will reflect on how we gather research and build knowledge about culture, and on the library as a space for slow processes of contemplation and discovery.

This exhibition expands on its predecessor, Apparatus for a Utopian Image (September 21 – October 29, 2016) at EFA Project Space in New York; initiated by artists Pavla Sceranková and Dušan Zahoranský to encourage a dialogue between artists from Prague and New York City. Apparatus 2.0 deepens the engagement by facilitating long-distance collaborations between the same artists, bringing the New York group to meet their Prague counterparts during opening week.

Each working group has been invited to consider their experiences – in different cities, under their respective cultural conditions – to see how these aspects shape the artists understanding of images.

Apparatus 2.0: The Unreliable Library is co-presented by The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts (EFA) in New York, and Foundation and Center for Contemporary Arts (FCCA) in Prague.
