Tomáš Vaněk belongs to the generation of artists who appeared on the Czech art scene in the mid-1990s. His work may be characterised as exploring the space „inbetween“ – between reality and fiction, between the artist and the viewer, between a creative and routine approach, between private and public, between perception and conscience – or, finally, between an object and its shadow. Tomáš Vaněk was awarded the Jindřich Chalupecký Award in 2001.

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.
