In the 28th issue of Contemporary Czech Art in Berlin, we talk to the visual artist and cultural organizer Alice Máselníková.
Alice Máselníková (b. 1989, Zlín, Czech Republic) is a visual artist, and an organizer of various artist-run initiatives based in Stockholm. She is one of the three creative directors of Supermarket – Stockholm Independent Art Fair, founder of the artist-run initiative Flat Octopus, project leader of ARNE (Artist-Run Network Europe), project manager at Intercult, while she also works independently as a curator, editor, and cultural funding advisor.
In her artistic practice which includes painting and writing, she deals with themes such as interactions of human bodies, the fragility of internal experiences and its external manifestation. Máselníková’s last solo exhibition titled Those games we fail to play took place in June in TOP project space in Berlin, and at the moment she is preparing her next solo exhibition in Frankfurt am Main at gallery Eulengasse opening on 2 September as well as another in Stockholm at Konsthallen Studio ABC in Vällingby in October. This year she also exhibited solo at KH7 in Aarhus, Denmark, and in a duo show with sculptor Tone Linghult at the Residency of the Czech Ambassador in Stockholm.
