Born in 1986, Vladimir Turner is a Czech artist and filmmaker. He lives and works in Prague. Her work combines cinematic documentary linked to political activism, artistic interventions in public space – including performance, installations, etc. – as well as video works. Without making distinctions between documentary, art in public space and activism, Turner considers all of his work as a unit which he describes as active civic life.
