Showcasing provocative paintings and mixed-media compositions which frequently embody satirical commentaries on both socialist and capitalist ideologies, this catalogue features fine reproductions of works representing two stages in the career of Czech-born artist Kunc (b. 1944), the selection ranging from Pop-influenced renderings of Superman, Lenin and other cultural icons to surrealistic landscapes and portraits permeated with kitsch imagery. Includes an autobiographical text by the artist and two critical essays exploring the implications of his serio-comic treatment of cultural and political themes.
