Lunch of the brand new book at Shedhalle in Zurich (January 2010) and Secession in Vienna (May 2010) where will be introduced particular headwords and content of the Atlas in form of performative live act during of screening of new originated movie.

The Czech curators Zbyněk Baladrán, Vit Havaranek and Vera Krejcová transfer their work-in-progress project "transformance" which deals with the transformation of the Czech society using artistic reflections also in a book entitled "atlas transformace". By using a systematic order of text and image, Baladrán proposes a participative artistic strategy in which memory, experience and historical knowledge could be formalised.

Atlas of Transformation with its almost 900 pages, is a sort of global guidebook of transformation processes. With structured entries, its goal is to create a tool for the intellectual grasping of the processes of social and political change in countries that call themselves "countries of transformation" (or are described by this term).

The Atlas of Transformation contains more than 200 'entries' and key terms of transformation. Several dozen authors from the whole world contributed to this book and also some influential period texts are republished here. (www.tranzit.org,www.monumenttotransformation.org)

Zbyněk Baladrán together with Vít Havránek, who both are curators of the current Manifesta 8 in Murcia, will present in a temporary installation and a performative lecture the English edition (published in Winter 2010 by JRP Ringier) of the publication Atlas of Transformation.
