Adrian Altman

Term: March-May 2021

Adrian Altman (1993) from Czech Republic has experience of a diverse opinion capital. He asks questions about the meaning of artistic work in the current cultural and especially political situation. During his studies, he went through a range of internships across different schools and studios. Currently, he is in his final year at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague in the studio of Josef Bolf, Jakub Hošek and Nik Timková. He usually works with deliberate references self-critically and provocatively aiming to his own artsy backyard. Altman’s art production may seem very diverse in a formal way, he freely handles various media which are always determined by the original idea or as an adaptation to his current environment. The most common outcome of his work are installations made of various objects, videos, paintings or performances in a complex scheme. The specificity of his practice is based on parasitizing or kind of crypto-cooperation with or against the establishment.
