Look from the Bridge - Imago Mundi
Contemporary Artists from Slovakia
Imago Mundi - Luciano Benetton Collection
Texts by Luciano Benetton, Liliana Malta, Beata Jablonská
This wide-ranging, perceptive and intriguing snapshot of Slovakian contemporary art constitutes the newest piece in the great Imago Mundi mosaic, with a collection dedicated to one of the youngest nations in Europe. A land of majestic peaks and fertile valleys, wide rivers like the Danube and fast-flowing torrents that are reflected in the 143 artworks, fruit of the work of a creative community where art is an instrument of social and political critique, focusing on gender issues, individual and collective memory, observations on globalization. Proof that in Slovakia, as in the rest of the world, Art provides a space for freedom, vision and reflection.
Look from the Bridge. Contemporary Artists from Slovakia is an Imago Mundi collection, a cultural, democratic, global, non-profit project, promoted by Luciano Benetton with the aim of creating the widest possible mapping of the different contemporary artistic experiences of our world. In Imago Mundi, each country is represented by the works of established artists and new talents, commissioned with the maximum freedom of expression, whose only constraint is the 10x12 cm format.
