White Space in White Space tells the story of a legendary project and key work of the Eastern European neo-avant-garde, of which Kontakt is home to a representative body of works. Initiated by a collective of Slovak artists—Stano Filko, Miloš Laky, and Ján Zavarský—in 1973 and continuously evolved over the course of nearly ten years, this complex and most intriguing art project is comprehensively documented for the first time in this volume. It examines all of the specific venues and occasions on which the project was exhibited (in Brno, Bratislava, Budapest, Paris, Warsaw, Belgrade, and Kassel), brings together the collected manifestos and artists’ writings, and also traces the project’s further transformation in the practice of Stano Filko as a solo artist.

A selection of newly commissioned essays approaches the White Space in White Space project from a variety of contemporary perspectives. A recent conversation with the conceptual artist and renowned theatre scenographer Ján Zavarský, its only surviving originator, plus a detailed timeline complement this first comprehensive mapping of the project. All texts (in English) are accompanied by rich photographic documentation of the various stages as well as additional visual materials. The graphic design was conceived and executed by Soybot (Marie Fegerl, Gerhard Jordan).
