This lavishly illustrated monograph presents the oeuvre of one of the most distinctive artists working today. Sculptor and painter Erika Bornová draws on autobiographical subjects in her art, but she never leaves any doubt as to where the line between fact, dream, and fantasy lies. Her works ingeniously build on and uniquely develop traditional art techniques. They are frequently provocative in their content, which often possesses an erotic subtext, and in their manner of execution, with Bornová using highly unconventional materials and surprising combinations.
The book is accompanied by a text by art historian Martina Pachmanová
Czech Photography of the 20th Century, published simultaneously in Czech and English versions, is the first book to present the main trends, figures, and works of Czech photography from the beginning to the end of the last century to such a large extent. Its 517 plates include not only the most important, well-known photographs and photomontages, but also works that have long been forgotten or are published for the first time. The book is arranged in seventeen chapters, supplemented with chronologies of the most important events in twentieth-century Czech photography and history.
