Zuzana Jakalová – Bluecoat Residency Programme

As the UK’s longest running arts centre, Bluecoat has provided space for artists and audiences at the heart of Liverpool for over a century. This year, Bluecoat’s international residency programme partners for the first time with the Arts and Theatre Institute and Czech Centre London and invites Prague-based independent curator Zuzana Jakalová to develop her research into health, disability and economic precariousness for her forthcoming publication, Multilogues on the Now.

Zuzana Jakalová is a curator and cultural manager; works as a curator at Display – Association for Research and Collective Practice along with Zbyněk Baladrán. For five years, she worked as a curator of the Centre for Contemporary Art MeetFactory AiR Program in Prague. From 2012 she was the curator-in-chief of Prádelna Bohnice, an art space and gallery in the psychiatric hospital at the outskirts of Prague. She graduated from the Faculty of Humanities at Charles University in Prague and Theory of Interactive Media at Masaryk University in Brno, completed an internship by Renate Lorenz at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Vienna. She finished her diploma thesis on the feminist notion of ethics of care as a strategy of contemporary and is currently a PhD scholar at the Faculty of Arts at VUT in Brno researching topics of emotional labor in contemporary art institutions. She was in residency at the MuseumsQuartier in Vienna and was selected as a fellow for the CEC ArtsLink Residency – she realised her residency at the Triangle Arts Foundation in NYC. In her curatorial work, she dealt with topics of failure, un-success and embarrassment.
