The Notebook for Art, Theory and Related Zones is a periodical focussing on contemporary visual arts in a broader cultural and theoretical context. The Notebook's aim is to cultivate Czech reflection on art by printing texts written by specialists in the area of the humanities and social sciences that thematicize the current situation in art and today's culture in the Czech Republic and abroad. The Notebook is not in principle methodologically defined; the decisive criteria are quality, level of stimulation and relevance for reflection upon contemporary visual art.
The magazine comes out twice a year and features specialised studies and reviews. Since 2010 is on the List of Reviewed Non-impact Journals. The original articles offered to the editors for publication have since 2009 gone through regular reviewing proceedings.
It is listed with the State Technical Library and in the records of the Ministry of Culture. Presently it is published by the AVU Research Centre as part of a research project of the Czech Ministry of Culture.
