The avant-garde way out of the misery of First World War
The First World War left scars not only on the body, but first of all on the soul. The soul presented in art. Our newest exhibition “After ” shows the impact of the war and how it affected the artists. The exhibition is taking us into the interwar period (1918–1939). In the spotlight of the attraction, there are four central European artists; Slovak, Hungarian, Polish and Czech. These artists are representatives of avant-garde art such as cubism, fauvisms and expressionism. There was one war, but many reflections. This exhibition offers two perspectives. There are those who reflected experienced evil straight on their work and in its most vivid form. We also present the second perspective – art which seeks the complete opposite, the comfort of life simplicity and nature.
