JAKUB ŠIMČÍK: We're strangers. Here and there.

Thursday / 4. 5. 2017
19:00 - 21:00
Galerie G99, Dominikánská 9

The exhibition of a young Swedish artist who was born in the former Czechoslovakia and later settled down in Germany deals with the search for the identity of his family and his own, the effort to find the truth that remains only in mere fragments that are indistinguishable from the fictional imagination of storytellers, and the effort to define one’s own home – the members of the artist’s family have coped with the loss of their home in different ways. At the time when foreigners seeking refuge in Europe from war are regarded as a danger and populists use the dramatic situation to radicalize society, the author presents an autobiographical story of Czech migrants, where we can find many unexpected parallels with the current situation. At the same time his story confirms that a unique and very often touching story is hidden behind every case and it deserves an individual solution, regardless of religion or origin.
