International seminar on the current state of art criticism. Organised by the Arts and Theatre Institute (ATI) in cooperation with the Arts Council Norway and supported by the EEA/Norway Financial Mechanism.

The international seminar focused on current challenges of art criticism:

Do artists, audiences and general public need criticism?; What are the specific features of various media types?; How new technologies influence criticism?; Is it possible to strategically support art criticism?

The aim of the seminar was to discuss the state of the art criticism in the Czech Republic, and to share the knowledge and opinions with the participants from Norway and other European countries as the beginning of the broader European dialogue on how to support the art criticism.
