“We are building onto the everyday experience of wide social strata; we analyze it and look for points that go beyond the sphere of the mundane. With a conscious art form we attempt to reflect their interests, dreams, fears, and ambitions. What we express is in harmony with their ideas; we speak the language of bitter truth.”
“We wish to create a high structured and internally strictly organized all-society platform whose goal is the attainment of a future with a humanity of higher quality.”
Excerpts from the Rafani Constitution
Rafani Group focus on public intervention. They share a strong spirit of collective artistic responsibility in relationship to the society remains present. They combined awareness of history with very actual artistic actions. Their relationship to historical events (recent as well as handreds of years old) is serious but never didactic. They succeed in bringing the historical context into the present situation in a relevant and efficient way. Another interesting part of their work is that they accompany their actions with a public statement or a manifesto... Although RAFANI operates mainly within the Czech context their projects are relevant for a larger audience and can be understood within your own cultural and artistic background.
