Jan Krtička (1979) is an audiovisual artist and teacher. In his work, he often works with elements of aurality, concepts and topography. Krtička graduated in sculpture at the Faculty of Visual Arts at the Technical Univerisity in Brno. His doctoral thesis (from the Faculty of Art and Design at the University of Jan Evangelista Purkyně in Ústí nad Labem) focused on theories and critical aspects of documentation in art. Krtička is interested in the context of landscape and often engages with the contingency of nature and the determinancy of the human. He was together with Pavel Mrkus the main initiator and organizer of the conference Mundus Murmurans dedicated to Acoustic Ecology in Ústí nad Labem.
