David Böhm – Jiří Franta

Curator: Denisa Václavová, cooperation Karla Hlaváčková

David Böhm and Jiří Franta have been working together since 2006. Their work is varied and wide ranging, from conceptual and procedural drawing, which is perhaps most characteristic of them, to installations in public spaces or performances.

One of their studio installations dealing with situations in a public space was also on display this year on the facade of the Vzlet cultural centre.

Book production is also fundamental for them, and both of them have several original publications under their belts, including comic strip books, magazines and art catalogues. Both David Böhm (1982) and Jiří Franta (1978) graduated from Vladimír Skrepl’s studio at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague. They have won numerous awards for their work and have been nominated for the Jindřich Chalupecký Award three times. David Böhm, together with the poet Ondřej Buddeus, won the Magnesia Litera book award in 2013 for the publication The Head in the Head and in 2020 he won an award as the author of A is for Antarctica.

For the GHMP, the artistic duo Böhm/Franta is preparing a brand new project dealing with speculative urbanistic models of public space and urban-development and architectural interventions in the city. Specific works will be created for the exhibition, offering viewers a different perspective of the environment they live in through drawings, paintings, photographs and film.
