The work of Jiří Skála can be labeled, according to groovy theoretical conventions, as conceptual art although it does not entirely correspond to its definition despite the fact that Skála´s thoughts are connected to the concept of conceptualism through strictly polarized standpoints between text and object, painting and the gallery space. An important aspect of Skála´s work is the theme of the text narrative and the search for an alternative mode of communication which would enable a relevant existence of the narrative either in a gallery or public space.

In the series of thirteen audio-interviews recorded during the autumn 2013 Johana Švarcová spoke to artists who use in different ways „the non-visual element“ – sound. For some of the artists that she addressed, working with sound, sound art, development of instruments (hardware and software), radio art or sound installations have become their major field of interest. Other artists deal with sound or sound track (e.g. video) in their own specific ways.
