The essays in this book deal with those who currently figure among the most important Czech artists and whose work is internationally recognized. Most of them entered the art scene in the late 1980s on the crest of a powerful generational wave known as Czech postmodernism. Although this artistic drive ran parallel to revolutionary changes in Central and Eastern Europe, it would be grossly simplistic and misleading to view Czech postmodernism as a by-product of the disintegration of Communist regimes and exposure to the effects of West European culture. In fact, the story of Czech postmodernism is unique evidence that, in diverse social and political contexts, artists ultimately address issues of a general nature beyond politics and ideology.
