A Promise of Kneropy outside



A Promise of Kneropy is an artist-run space founded in 2020 by APART Collective and SORRYWECAN that roofs a gallery, and the affiliated reading and study room with library.


The gallery represents a physical extension of our exhibiting and curatorial projects and gives spaces for both local and international artists and collectives. We’ve launched our exhibition program with Gaming the Aftermath by Diffractions Collective.


The public community reading and study room aims to be a platform for critical thinking, discussion, and idea exchange while sustaining the principles of radical inclusion and hospitality. It roofs a shared study and research space with access to book titles from fields such as humanities, art, contemporary critical, and radical thinking. The space will host discussions, lectures, critical readings, and more.




KNEROPY = a new word that defines a suprainfinitic phenomenon: the moment of transformation which happens when you give or receive the hug of utopian, profound, visionary ideas that make way for a change.


The moment of transformation, of one encountering artworks, ideas, or books that can carry the potential of transformation in society is one utopian thought, one moment of transformation at a time. Such encounter can be articulated and enacted as something warm, friendly, caring, disarming, and bewitching – a hug.


The name ”A Promise of Kneropy” carries the possibilities of transformation, hints to utopian ideas and the complex processes of bringing them to reality, and allures us, the invited artists and audience to discover its meaning. It marks our keen commitment to offering the possibility of getting that hug, of enabling this moment through exhibitions, books, lectures, and anything in between. We believe that imagining, disseminating, and discussing urgent topics can find ways of getting these ideas and artworks across from the art sphere to other spheres and communities to bring a positive change.


A promise that is neverending, everchanging, self-regenerating, and vitalizing. In this case, A Promise of Kneropy becomes for APART and collaborators a decisive act of care and genuine commitment to potentially fulfill afresh with each work, talk, and visit.


The name was invented by the transdisciplinary art collective Apparatus 22

Isle of the Altered Sun

Artist: Natália Trejbalová

Curated by: Ema Hesterová & Denis Kozerawski


Isle of the Altered Sun takes place on the flattened Earth and is set in the distant future of the planet. Following the flattening, the atmosphere of the Earth has undergone further changes that have led to the extinction of some and the evolution of other species, including the humans that have lost their dominant position in the ecosystem. Isle of the Altered Sun is a possible picture of the world after what can be defined as a planetary catastrophe, which has changed the perception of nature as we know it.
