Announcing the Establishment of The Július Koller Society
BRATISLAVA.- The founding committee of The Július Koller Society (SJK) is pleased to announce its public registration as a civic association based in Bratislava, Slovak Republic. The SJK is founded in memory of the artist Július Koller (1938–2007), whose oeuvre, in its stringency, obsession and peculiarity, is one of the most idiosyncratic and consistent in European visual arts since the 1960s.

Mission:
The Július Koller Society (SJK) is a non-profit association of citizens whose aim is to preserve, research, enrich and relate to the public the artistic heritage of Július Koller. A collection site and archive of the artist's work, a research and study centre, as well as a place for public debate and reflection, the SJK organizes domestic and international projects and activities in the areas of fine arts, art history, visual studies and cultural theory. It furthermore encourages the exchange of ideas and information in these fields, challenging the canons, geographies and master narratives of established art histories. Opposed to a reduction of arts and culture to their economic, populist or merely spectacular aspects, one main focus of the SJK is to research and highlight the specific conditions and histories of anti-canonical, peripheral and hitherto marginalized artistic practices.

Július Koller, U.F.O.-naut ?
As its first public activity, The Július Koller Society, in collaboration with the Slovak National Gallery, is proud to present Július Koller, U.F.O.-naut?, the first international conference on the oeuvre of Július Koller.
