Tranzit Display is one of the most exciting spaces for contemporary art in Prague. Run by curator and theorist Vít Hravánek (Curator of Manifesta 2010) it offers research and exhibition opportunities to young artists.  Mr. Hravánek graciously gave his time to talk to the students about the changes in post-totalitarian Central European art practices and modes of exhibiting in this new environment.
