One of the Agosto Foundation’s most important contributions to the local and international music scene, the project vs. Interpretation is an ongoing transdisciplinary project promoting innovative improvised artistic projects and research.

Beginning with a festival, symposium and artist residencies in the summer of 2014, vs. Interpretation strives to create a field for inquiry and experimentation for artists, scholars, and interested individuals across all disciplines and experience levels. In June 2015, the Agosto Foundation published a volume of writings inspired by the project entitled vs. Interpretation: An Anthology on Improvisation. The publication can be obtained via the Kiosk on our website.

While the foundation has continued to offer support to other projects through its grants, it has also brought together a number of local organizations to present work in various venues, mainly in the Prague 7 district. Several of these events came together to make up the vs. Interpretation Festival, held in April 2016. The festival was noteworthy for gathering a diverse international group of artists to present, examine, and document new creative and experimental music from a global and interdisciplinary perspective.

The project vs. Interpretation continues to offer performances, presentations, opportunities for collaboration, lectures, panel discussions, workshops, sound installations, film screenings and concerts, many of which are documented and can be seen and heard directly on this website.
