About the exhibition

The international exhibition DYSTOPIAN MONUMENTS presents a selection of works by contemporary authors, predominantly of the young and middle generation from Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Poland, who respond to the theme of dystopia. Thus, we can look at sculptural works, objects and installations, for example, through stories about the near or distant future built from the remains, the waste of our civilization. We can also find in them certain mistakes of contemporary society, conflicts, connections between man and nature, but also the possibilities of technological progress and its opposite side in the form of suppressed humanity. The exhibition thus presents contemporary works as "silent" witnesses of today's times or society's monuments for the future
