Joanna Rajkowska and Pavel Büchler in conversation, 15 October 2015

Conversation at l’étrangère between Joanna Rajkowska and Pavel Büchler


Pavel Büchler is a Czech-born artist, teacher and occasional writer. He lives in Manchester.


Büchler belongs to a generation of artists directly influenced by the discoveries of 1970s conceptual art – or, as he insists, by the creative misunderstandings that conceptual art suffered in translation to the Eastern European cultural and political context. Summing up his own practice as “making nothing happen”, he is committed to the catalytic nature of art – its potential to draw attention to the obvious and revealing it as ultimately strange.
