hunt kastner is very pleased to present its second solo exhibition by the artist Zbyněk Baladrán. The exhibition will present two video works inspired by the philosophy of one of the great liberal thinkers of the Enlightenment, Denis Diderot. In his new installation, the artist examines the origin of dreams and their role in contemporary capitalistic society and asks if it is possible to use them in another way.

Zbyněk Baladrán (born 1973 in Prague, Czechoslovakia) studied art history at the Charles University Philosophical Faculty in Prague and at the Prague Academy of Fine Arts in the studio of visual communication. The artist characterizes his own working method as a search for links between the past and its construction in relation to prevailing epistemological patterns. 

He has exhibited extensively in the Czech Republic as well as internationally, including his joint exhibition “The Nervous System” with Jiří Kovanda at the Milano Kunstverein in 2011, the presentation of his film “Liberation, or Alternatively…” at the Pavilion of the Czech and Slovak Republics at the 2013 Venice Biennale, and his solo exhibition “Dead Reckoning” at the CAC in Delme, France this year. His work is represented in various international private and public collections both at home and abroad.
