The Czech Republic’s EU Presidency during the first half of 2009 enabled the Capital City of Prague the opportunity to provide its openness, vitality and “joie de vivre” towards the international community.

The light art project Transparency, organized and realised by w.art projects in cooperation with the City of Prague, was based on the concept of making ambitious contemporary art accessible to everyone. Therefore, we have taken the conscious decision to bring light art to public areas. This allowed the inhabitants of Prague and the international visitors to experience the oversized light installations in a dimension never seen before.

Six well renowned artists like Julian Opie (UK), Stephan Reusse (D), Jaume Plensa (E), Arthur Duff (USA / Italy), Ulla Rauter (A) and Jenny Holzer (USA) created visual high lights during the period of the EU Presidency.

Illumination projections on the facades of buildings, the river Vltava and at other unexpected locations in the centre of the town surprised and astounded the viewers. Transparency is a marvellous idea to enchant a wonderful city during this important period.
