Magda Stanová

affiliation: Academy of Fine Arts in Prague


I’m a multidisciplinary artist and an assistant professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague. My research-based practice results in artistic forms like visual essays and lecture shows. I smuggle performative lectures into academic conferences and a drawn theory of photography into photographic festivals. I look into cognitive sciences for ideas about creative process and perception of art and combine them with the experience of an artist.


I have authored two books—Algorithms in Art (2016) and In the Shadow of Photography (2022, Polish edition in 2008)—and am co-author of The Pedestrian’s Venice (2017). I hold an MFA in New Genres from the San Francisco Art Institute, where I studied as a Fulbright scholar, an MFA in Photography from the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava, and a PhD in Fine Arts from the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague, where I now teach doctoral-level classes related to artistic research.
