MONUMENT TO TRANSFORMATION 1989 - 2009

is a delineation of the space in which art does not have to offer direct answers to political problems and social transformations, but instead investigates the prerequisites and conditions in which both politics and society seek their points of support

is a series of exhibitions, projections, publications, debates and lectures going on for more than three years

is an attempt to grasp the differences, connections and contradictions of the “transformation period” in the Czech Republic in the years 1989 – 2009

is an attempt to achieve detachment from the directly experienced (the transformation in the Czech Republic) by means of setting our experience within a new global map of transformation (Argentina, Indonesia, South Korea, Portugal, Greece, Spain, “Eastern Europe” etc.).

is a concentration of all the activities listed into an exhibition and an extensive publication “Atlas of Transformation”.
