25th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
Artmat is the first project in the Czech Republic that presents the talents of the contemporary art scene in old cigarette vending machines and at the same time revives interesting places (not only) in public space. Instead of cigarettes, you will now find a curated selection of works of art in miniature size and a limited number of pieces in vending machines. By purchasing an Artmat box, you will support the work of the young generation of artists and at the same time invest in an original, signed work of art.
In 2019, the Artmat project introduced the first art vending machine in the Czech Republic, in Krymská Street in Prague. This year, another was added in Karlín's Invalidovna and one mobile vending machine, which is presented at various interesting events and festivals. The project was founded by curators of contemporary art Josefína Frýbová and Petra Widžová.
