Orient. “The New East” in Central Eastern European Art

The exhibition Orient in Bunkier Sztuki Gallery of Contemporary Art is a meditation on the Central and Eastern European identity. It considers the failure of its own identity to be the unifying aspect of this unclear region. The contradictory longing for pride and patriotism and at the same time, the feeling of being ashamed of where we come from that leads to the suppression and negation of this belongingness. 
The exhibition is part of the Trauma & Revival. The Post-War Era in the Art of Eastern and Western Europe international project supported by the European Commission’s Creative Europe framework programme.

Karel Malich

The Zdeněk Sklenar Gallery presents the sculptures and reliefs of Karel Malich, created between 1963 and 2016. The installation of Federico Díaz presents the unity of Malich more than fifty years of sculpture.
At different times, Malich completely transformed the visual form of his works. Besides the two-dimensional and three-dimensional objects, the exhibition also presented its plexiglas sculptures and visionary architectural designs from the 60s and early 70s of the 20th century as well as several previously unreleased works.

MeetFactory (CZ) | Fightlessness

The Hungarian art group Little Warsaw (András Gálik and Bálint Havas) belongs to the most striking artists of their generation, which emerged on the contemporary art scene after the year 1989. Their work is closely connected with issues specific in the context of former Eastern Bloc countries – analysis and re-contextualization of objects and ideas from the past, deconstruction of common art forms, a striking anti-establishment attitude, a critical mirror held up to modernism, retro-avant-garde, conceptualism and neo-conceptualism, the expansion of the borders of art and transfer of artistic discourse into a broader social reality.
