Aleš Čermák (b. 1984)

Artist, writer and founder of A-B_HPP (Ausdruck Books Hybrid Publishing Platform – which brings together authors and performers focused on researching hybrid thinking and writing). Aleš has lead many workshops in Czech Republic and abroad (Germany, Austria, England, Morocco, Indonesia, India, etc.), and most of these encounters lead to realizing a work. He often takes part in staging works of other authors. Since 2014, he has collaborated with a group of mentally and physically diagnosed (non)actors who actively collaborate on some of his projects (The Citizen and the Thing, The Earth Trembles, All This Belongs to You I, II). His works have been presented at various institutions (Museum of Contemporary Art – Taipei, MuseumsQuartier – Vienna, Gasworks –London, Kunsthalle Bratislava, National Gallery – Prague, etc.), during various events (Liege Biennial, Jakarta Biennial, Jindřicha Chalupecký Award etc.). He is the author of three prose books (Pes nadbíhá kličkujícímu zajíci, 2012; The Twin Ship Tao, 2019; Return.Self.New, 2019 – EN version 2020) and many other texts.


In the last ten years, I have been intensely focused on researching hybrid praxis in the sphere of performative conduct, social choreography, collective action, care and writing. I am interested in an unpredictable, processual, perhaps even alienated subjectivity. This mode of thought prompts me to develop methods which are rather cohesive and autonomous. I am interested in temporary ways of mutual cohabitation which are directly made possible by given social conditions. The individual (participant) undergoes the risk of weakening their sense of self without completely dissolving. Throughout this time, I’ve so far always had the opportunity to work with very diverse communities of people from different parts of the world. From workinging with professional actors and performers, through groups of volunteers of all age groups and religions, with migrants, children, students of art and other fields, with groups diagnosed with some mental or physical handicap, etc. The central aspect of my work is that it is not intended for professional artists, audiences or art institutions, but rather that it ought to be accessible to both artists and non-artists. In recent years, my work has remained so open, that virtually anyone can take part in it.
