Series of 25 events
Concept Martin Mazanec

Dreams That Money Can Buy is a series of 25 events held every day after dark. The selection focuses on moving images made between 2014 and the present. Rather than introducing the works in a thematic context, our aim was to collect them in the Czech environment. In many ways, Dreams That Money Can Buy continues the way in which the moving images have been mapped by the Other Visions section of the Festival of Film Animation in Olomouc for ten years. Instead of directly confronting selected works by exhibiting them or presenting them at a screening hall, each work will be introduced separately during one of 25 days.
The title of the series is borrowed from Dreams That Money Can Buy (1947), a film made in American exile by German artist Hans Richter. The work is sometimes seen as an imaginary end of the classic (first) avant-garde. Other artists who collaborated on the film include John Cage, Alexander Calder, Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, Fernand Léger and Man Ray. Their approach to the moving image in the film is illustrative of the still relevant distinction between a free creative use of image recording material and, on the contrary, a refinement of the projection format and thus the whole work as part of cinema.
