Through The Walls

On the 17th November 2019 it will be exactly 30 years since the fall of communism regime in former Czechoslovakia. On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the events of 1989 which created “Europe without walls”, the Czech Centre Rotterdam is organizing an international art exhibition to reflect on the contemporary socio-political situation and the current state of our society 30 years after the fall of the Iron Curtain. 

The seven exhibiting artists are individuals coming from several European countries. Because of their different cultural backgrounds and current experience with living abroad, specifically in the Netherlands, they offer multiple perspectives on our society. Which is why they can see through the walls that may still stand between us; and look at them from more than one angle.

Luis Maly (GR), Leonie Schneider (DE), Valentino Russo (IT), Martin Gabriel (CZ), Jip Piet (NL), Kateřina Konarovská (CZ) and Roland Spitzer (DE) are artists with various artistic practices using forms such as video, sculpture, textile, or painting. Such combination of mediums and cultural backgrounds promises a vibrant and multidimensional show. The exhibition communicates issues like real or imaginary freedom, use and abuse of power, money and poverty, criminality and safety, communication and manipulation, equality and superiority, fear and courage, or ideals and fake gods.
