Magdalena Jetelová

Born June 4 1946, Semily
Lived in Bergheim (1989), Munich
 
Significant Czech sculptress and author of spatial installations, she is a world-renowned personality on the contemporary visual scene. She was one of the first artists from the post-totalitarian countries to work with new technologies, such as laser light, and she has used GPS coordinate code language as well as the current robotic systems. She saw the possibilities of the ever-improving technology for new media and for a regeneration of communication, with the aim of perceiving other inter-layers of time and space. She did not forget social aspects such as human rights and the environment.
