Vladimír Turner (1986) graduated from the Film and TV School of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague (FAMU) in audiovisual studies, then he studied at the Studio of Intermedia Confrontation at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague. He has been to study stays in Buenos Aires, Valencia, Brisbane, Toulouse, Rotterdam and Australia. In his works, he oscillates between documentary film, art in public space and activism. He does not perceive these fields as divided, trying to combine them within a whole he labels as active civic life. His works from around the world can be seen in the streets, on film screens and in galleries.
