Between Betweens Colloquium
Between Betweens (on creating, on collaborating, on curating, on collecting) will be a three-way conversation between Jaro Varga, Audrey Hörmann (Kunst im Kreuzgang, ajh.pm) and the gallerist Laura González Palacios on hybrid practices in the field of contemporary art. For the exhibition The Yellow Book, Jaro Varga intervenes and relates the book covers of three emblematic libraries in the city of Barcelona with his own personal archive, broadening the vision on very diverse topics such as the world of art, nature or robotics, making visible some gaps in the transmission of hegemonic knowledge.

Jaro Varga is a Slovak visual artist and curator based in Prague, Czech Republic. He earned a master’s degree and doctorate from the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava, and also participated in student exchanges at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, the Academy of Fine Arts in Wroclaw and Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania in the USA. Jaro is fascinated by how until recently our knowledge of the universe has been expressed through writing – speculations, theories or theorems without a solid foundation in exact science and research. The subject of the universe and its exploration would seem to be a logical continuation of his interest in the principles of how the sum of our knowledge is created, including the continued failure or inability to discover how things “really are.”
