Student Section - Scenofest

The Student Section – Scenofest introduced the new generation of scenographers and became a central interactive space for the entire Prague Quadrennial 2007. The section included the traditional school exhibitions, displaying models and recent designs of the student works. At the same time, schools, individual students and emerging artists had the opportunity of participating in the Scenofest, organized by the PQ and OISTAT (International Organization of Scenographers, Theatre Architects and Technicians).

As the quality of the school expositions has become more emphasized over the past few years, this section for the first time became a competitive section and two statutory prizes of the PQ were awarded here – the Best Exhibition and the Most Promising Talent – as well as the UNESCO Prize for the Promotion of the Arts – Performing Arts Section.

158 schools from 41 countries were on display in the traditional part of the national school exhibition. In total, 2178 students were accredited to participate in the PQ.

National School Exhibition

For the first time, the exhibiting school section was relocated to the Křižík Pavilion E joined by a corridor to the Right Wing of the Industrial Palace. Individual countries had the opportunity of presenting several schools in the national school section. The interest from the schools in exhibiting at the PQ continued to grow; for many schools, participation at the PQ has become a formal part of the long-term study programme. Students travel here with their instructors, many of whom also began their early careers right here in the school exhibition section of the PQ. Students had the unique opportunity of being associated with the best scenography that has appeared on the stages around the world over the past five years, and also to actively participate in the event. For them, the PQ is a unique opportunity of presenting their work during a world event and confronting the creative results of other students and professional theatre artists. No less significant is the personal encounter with artists from the entire world and obtaining new contacts. Unlike in 2003, the number of exhibiting countries grew from 34 to 42. This included countries that even did not exhibit in the National Section (ie. Austria, Italy, Georgia, etc).

The live programme was also a part of this section. Schools also participated in the Days of Countries and Regions in the form of presentations and performances, and some exhibits changed on a daily basis.
