For some time now, an oscillation between documenting existing reality and creating a fictitious one has been very much present in a number of variations in the projects undertaken by students of the Department of Photography and CAS (Centre of Audiovisual Studies) at FAMU in Prague. The technical image is a kind of record which implies the presence of reality, an eyewitness testimony, and as such it inevitably has some kind of documentary value. At the same time, increasingly widespread methods of manipulation and fictitious interventions deeply upset this very notion. In doing so, there arises a broad psychological field for a kind of absurdist mystery plot, where the quest for the truth is just as important as all the various paths of fiction.
