The exhibition links the artistic, theoretical and poetic work of seven personalities from “one family”, whose roots go partly to the Bohemian-Moravian Highlands, but also to southern Bohemia. It focuses mainly on the period from the mid-1950s to late 1970s, when the participants met most intensively and inspired each other. The connections between individual family members are multi-layered and often surprising. The exhibition is conceived as a network of contexts, allowing visitors to progress from key visual and audio points to greater depth. It offers encounters with artistic work ranging from poetry, music recordings, through photographs to abstract painting and the presentation of archival materials.
