The comprehensive and lavishly illustrated catalogue accompanies the exhibition of Stanislav Kolíbal at the 58th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia. The title of the exhibition and the catalogue Former Uncertain Indicated, is derived from Kolibal´s conceptual installation conceived in the mid-1970s. Its poetic and ambiguous character is crucial for the understanding of the artist’s position regarding time, life and his art. In his 100-page biographical essay, curator Dieter Bogner “revives” Kolíbal’s “interesting life” from the 1930s until the present day. The complex compilation of materials representing the main lines of Kolíbal’s life is completed with images from all the periods of his life and documenting his artistic output. The second part of the catalogue comprises reflections of a number of leading experts, both Czech and international, including art historian Terezie Nekvindová (Academy of Fine Arts, Prague), mathematician Jaroslav Nešetřil (Charles University, Prague), linguist Martin Prinzhorn (University of Vienna), the architect Pavla Melkova (Prague) and curators Adam Budak (National Gallery Prague), Christian Rattemeyer (Museum of Modern Art, New York), Juliet Bingham (Tate Modern, London), and Alicia Knock (Centre Pompidou, Paris). Karel Štědrý and Patrik Svoboda are responsible for the graphic design. The catalogue is edited by Dieter Bogner and Adam Budak and published by Walter König Verlag.
