Collection Czechia to the Czechs (limited edition of 5 author´s copies)


Czechia to the Czechs, 2018

In my collection I reflect the Czech society through irony and an amusing, visually easy-to-read way. The aim is not to criticise nor evaluate or judge – I myself am a part of the society. It is the unofficial national symbols along with the stereotypes that I use to illustrate what defines us, who we are. It was my ambition to portray a kind of a Czech essence – or, possibly, to advertise the Czech society. All of the stated, though, with humour and lightness. Making fun of ourselves is, after all, another of our typical national features.  D. H.
