ArtMap To Open New Book Store
Autumn 2016 on Vojtěšská street
For several years the unassuming address at Školská 28 has kept something hidden from street view: four separate but related art spaces: the Školská 28 and Fotograf Galleries, the ArtMap office, and Antonín Tomašek’s ceramics workshop.

Tomáš Ruller: Vs. Improvisation
A Contribution to the Vs. Interpretation symposium NOD, Prague, 17 July, 2014
The collective jam sessions by Black Market were not reflected as *improvisations* but rather as the *art of en-countering*, as the *art of weaving a network* where the participants act in mutual inter-action, right in the present, right here, right now — see Martin Buber’s motto: “Encountering does not happen in time and space; time and space belong to encountering…”.
