Surveying works by 20 artists who have figured prominently in nonconformist Czech art since the late 1960s, this catalogue features excellent full-page reproductions of 86 paintings, sculptures, mixed-media installations, collages and other pieces (most produced over the past decade) which range from figurative and minimalist abstractions to paper reliefs and text-based compositions. A lengthy examination of modernist traditions in Czech art and the artistic dimensions of the 1968 revolution is accompanied by three texts exploring the relationship between art, literature and politics in the country and a discussion of Jiri Kolar's role in the revival of the collage form.
