What is Value?
It’s not an easy task to answer this question. Depending on whether we consider the value of an artwork as a material, monetary category, or the artistic value is defined as a subjective interpretation that can only be realized through the action of the subject – the audience. Generally accepted view is that the value of an artwork is a set of values including aesthetics, and that we don’t have one comprehensive definition, that if the work meets, it’s considered valuable. We can only claim, that whether intrinsic or instrumental, singular or pluar, unique to art or not, the value as an aesthetic category is integrated in every segment of our everyday lives.
The exhibition ”Vrednost” will be on display until May 30th. 2019. All awarded works are printed in silkscreen technique, signed and numbered in limited edition. The artworks are available for purchasing from May 16th.
