The Slovak section WHATEVER WE DO WE CANNOT CONNECT WITH YOU reflects the issue of (non)communication, not only in the everyday life but first of all in the art world that is full of distorted information and subsequent communication noise, misunderstanding and misinterpretation often resulting into the conflict situations. It tests communication and communicating processes in both art production and presentation raising questions about the position of the viewer in the art process, his role and relation to the artist.

After three editions in the Karlin Hall, the next edition of the biennial will be held at Microna, a futuristic building that for many years was a factory for aircraft engines. The fifth edition of the biennial will be divided in three macro-sections: 'Expanded Painting,' 'Art In General' and 'Focus Italy.' Each of them is further divided into smaller sections, curated by appointed international curators. The first macro-section of the Prague Biennale is 'Expanded Painting'. The aim of this macro-section is to map the most interesting tendencies in contemporary painting with focus areas such as the United States, Portugal and Scandinavia. 'Art in General' is the second macro-section of the Prague Biennale. There is a particular focus on the Czech Republic, and Slovakia, as well as on India. You will find the same attitude and attention to regions in the third macro-section 'Focus Italy' featuring a selection of Italian artists. There is also the second edition of Prague Biennale Photo 2 focusing on the emerging scene in the field of photography in the Czech Republic and internationally /from the official press release/.

The Slovak part of the project was supported by: Ministry of Culture of the Slovak Republic, Slovak Institute in Prague
