      Bára Prášilová's surreal women

      Bára Prášilová is an extremely precise artist. She devotes much of her time and energy to preparing for her photographs. She often makes the props and costumes herself, as this is the only way to materialise her ideas. The worst thing that can happen to her is to be confronted with the limits of reality and then she is ready to walk through walls. Her artworks are well known around the world due to her perseverance and accuracy.

      More real than reality

      This past year exposed many problems that have been piling up for decades. It made them more clearly visible and more painful. At the same time, it seemed that the conversation about them became easy and open. There's a general feeling about the inevitable urgency of that talk prompting the participants to take a bolder and more direct approach.

      Joan Miro between words and images

      As a passionate reader and a good friend of poets, Joan Miro explored the paths of both painting and poetry simultaneously in his work, though eschewing any form of academicism, in a personal quest that did not ascribe to any particular movement. Throughout his life, poetry was a source of inspiration for him.
