The extensive retrospective exhibition of the contemporary Czech artist Jiří Kovanda (1953), who is known for his performances from the early 1970s, displays works from different state and private collections throughout Europe. The human psyche was his chief theme the same as in the work of other European artists at that time. He is known for his modest and minimalist form, he organized a number of performances in which he tested his own state of mind as well as the state of mind of the bystanders. He has also contributed in a significant way to the advent of postmodern thought in Czech culture. For instance, he created a number of works in which he worked with current changes of social values. The exhibition and catalogue were prepared in cooperation with the House of Arts in Brno and the Polish Museum Współczesne Wrocław.
