Metafora a Médium

Metafora a médium
Kateřina Dytrtová

The theme of the publication is the relationship between metaphor and the way the idea materializes in a work of art. The text of the author analyzes the ways of used media on selected works of contemporary artists of the art scene both in the Czech Republic and abroad: Katharina Gross, Julian Rosefeld, Marcus Huemer, Eberhard Havekost, Richard Deacon, Michal Rataj, Henry Zeithaml, Anna Hulačová, Britta Marakatt-Labby and Qiu Zhijie. This is a selection from major recent exhibition projects at the Rudolfinum Gallery, the Veletržní Palace, the Prague City Gallery, as well as works exhibited at the Venice Biennale in 2015 or at the last Kassel Document 14 in 2017.
