The start of conceptual art in the early 1970s meant a shift of interest from the aesthetic and material qualities of the work to it‘s personal, social, historical and often even theoretical context. Unlike the Western art scenes, the conceptual thinking of the Czechoslovak author‘s was motivated by a more personal search for the essence of the relationship between the artist and the art on both an artistic and a political-ethical level and also social, even ecological, level. Thus the conceptual turn was not perceived only through it’s dematerialisation and iconoclastic efforts, but above all as a utopian escape to the official and state-controlled culture. It gave the artists free space which they used in a wide range of media and themes.

The CS CONCEPTUAL ART OF THE 70s exhibition focuses on monitoring trends that have been applied to the art of ideas, records, projects and events. It will present various forms of conceptual work with drawings and photographs as well as the status of the concept devoted to the relation of the script and the image, or it will also focus on futuristic, action and environmental projects. Rather than creating an historic overview of the conceptual thinking of the 1970s the exhibition will be a diverse mosaic that illustrates the interdependence of Czech and Slovak art through a wide range of authors. Therefore the project is unique in its effort to point out the joint starting point of the art scene, that has been reflected as two separate units since the split of Czechoslovakia.
