DOX Centre for Contemporary Art
The DOX Centre for Contemporary Art is a multi-functional space created thanks to a private initiative through the reconstruction of a former factory in Prague’s Holešovice district.The name DOX is derived on the Greek word doxa, which among other things means a way of perceiving things, an opinion, a conviction. DOX’s programme differs from other similar exhibition institutions (the combination of a “kunsthalle” with a multifunctional cultural centre) primarily through art projects incorporating critical reflections on current social topics and issues overlapping with other “non-artistic” areas and disciplines such as psychology, philosophy, history, sociology, political science, etc.
Through exhibitions of contemporary international and Czech art, DOX explores contemporary topics and further develops discussions through various accompanying programme formats and events for the general public, ranging from conferences and panel discussions to film projections, interactive workshops, and public happenings. DOX offers as well space for literature and performing arts.
