Michal Kuzemenský, text for the catalog and the exhibition and UMPRUM ATTACK, p. 55/56, © Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague, 2016, ISBN 978-80-86863-84-9
“The catalog presents a selection of student works that were created during the last school year. The exhibiting students were selected according to the criterion of greater or lesser attack (meant positively, but decisively) against a discipline, medium or convention and the contemporary world in general. In addition, the catalog publishes texts of a number of critically and positively distinctive personalities, often with foreign experience, were invited to comment on the existing system of training and the situation of graduates (Dominika Applová, Helena Doudová, Vlastimil Havlík, Pavel Hnilička, Matěj Chabera, Ondřej Chorý, Olo Křížová, Michal Kuzemenský, Petra Matějovičová, Aleš Najbrt, Petr Nový, Sylva Petrová, Tomáš Pospiszyl, Veronika Ruppert, Evžen Šimera and Alan Záruba). The intention of the concept is to bring feedback to the school and at the same time to activate the mutual interaction of the school and the external environment. The UMPRUM ATTACK! exhibition had a sneak preview in the Studio of Graphic Design and Visual Communication, in which everything was concentrated into one “Attack Environment”. The photographer Václav Jirásek then shot this whole, which might be reminiscent of a cabinet of curiosities, surreal environment or set design of an imaginary space. Its appeal lays primarily in the fact that the most important things that characterize UMPRUM were concentrated in one space – namely the interaction and exchange of energy between the students themselves, which is not directed, and for that is all the more immediately intense.
