The Front line exhibition commemorated the 100-years anniversary of the beginning of World War I. In a monumental site-specific installation by Slovak artists Bohuš and Monika Kubinský, two battle lines confronted each other: a trench wall evoking Verdun’s defensive system from World War I, and a line composed of fragments from authentic anti-aircraft bunkers (“Kugelbunkers”) from World War II.. The second part of the exhibition consisted of the destinies, personal stories, reminiscences and intimate testimonies by direct participants in World War I. Unique diaries, drawings, photographs and other items were collected in an open call declared by Czech Television during preparations for the making of a documentary series entitled “Report on the Great War”.

Modes of Democracy

In its eight chapters, the catalogue for the current exhibition, Modes of Democracy, includes art projects from around the world that create both inspirational stories of democracy taking place at various levels – from neighbourhood, town, and city to a global level. The exhibition, whose topic is based on the question whether the traditional form of democracy is on the retreat, thus reacts to massive monitoring and disappearing privacy, successes of populist politicians, and the return of authoritarian regimes, all of which are increasingly common. The exhibition includes dozens of artists from five continents such as Harun Farocki, Paolo Cirio, Daniel Latorre, and Todd Lester, with Czech artists including Jiří Černický, Michaela Thelenová, and Zdena and Michal Koleček.
