Václav Janoščík is a pedagogue, researcher and curator; he is curently an assistant professor at the Academy of Fine Arts, and a lecturer at several other Prague-based universities (UMPRUM, FF CUNI). He focuses on contemporary philosophy and theory of media and art, nonetheless he keeps engaged in other diverse fields. In this respect it is interdisciplinarity, dialogue (between theory and arts) and the critical aspects of art which form his main interest. He edited several collective monographs, most recently the book entitled Objekt (2015), featuring his translations of some key texts from speculative realism and new materialism. One of his last exhibitions, Return of the Object / Disorder of Things, tries to connect young international artist and their mode of creation with object speculative realism.
