Roman Štětina is a distinctive young artist who sensitively connects sound and the spoken word in his work, focusing in particular on radio or TV broadcasting.

He works with archive materials which he updates and transforms into remarkable handicraft pieces of work full of intelligent humour, imagination and ideas. Štětina was the winner of the ESSL Award in 2011 and the finalist of the Jindřich Chalupecký Award in 2014.

Other artists deal with sound or sound track (e.g. video) in their own specific ways.
