LinhArt Crossing Borders

The Linhart Foundation has systematically encouraged Czech artists´ involvement in international co-operation as a means of expanding their worldwide contacts and broadening the scope of their professional artistic endeavours.

This programme run by the Foundation aims at supporting and developing up-and-coming independent Czech artists´ involvement in international co-operation and presentation of their works at major international art festivals and other events.

A specific major international event is singled out every year for the Foundation´s participation grant extended to a project chosen from a list of applicants who have responded to the Foundation´s open invitation.

The event chosen for the year 2017 was the prestigious U.S. festival BURNING MAN, held annually in August, in the Black Rock Desert of northwest Nevada. The invitation was open to individual artists and groups wishing to realize their projects at the festival, in August 2017.
