Prague Biennale 5 will be divided in three macro sections: Expanded Painting, Art In General and Focus Italy. With a structure reminiscent of a Chinese Box, each macro section is divided into smaller sections, each of them organized by an international curator appointed by Prague Biennale directors Giancarlo Politi and Helena Kontova. Continuing the first edition inaugurated last year, the second edition of Prague Biennale Photo 2 will spotlight the emerging scene in the field of photography in the Czech Republic and internationally.
