On 21 September the book "Your name is Josef ¦edý" written by Ale¨ Palán it will be presented. The book entitled "Your Name is Josef ¦edý" is based on the search for the Lí¨eň profile, which almost two thousand inhabitants of the municipal district of Brno-Lí¨eň selected from more than 500 drawings made by Czech artists. Josef ¦edý carries in his face an image of the district in which he has spend the whole of his life. The book charts his life and the activities which, after publication of the results of the voting, are being used to present this personality in such a way that he becomes the genuine embodiment of the town where he lives. The introduction to the book is a transcription of the official announcement of the winner of the Lí¨eň Profile, in which Kateřina ¦edá explains the concept of the event. There follows a dialogue with the artist who drew the winning picture, Hynek Poul. The bulk of the book is an attempt to pin down Josef ¦edý’s personality. The text was created on the basis of dialogues.

The artist Kateřina ¦edá will involve the public with an artistic action during all the day on 21 September in Lí¨eň.
