Until 1989, women were present on the Czech art scene more often than not as solitary figures, eclipsed by their male counterparts. In the course of the 1990s came a rapid succession of several generations of women artists asserting themselves. Their output brought in new subjects and a new visual aspect of art work, but also a previously unwitnessed enhancement of the status of women in the domestic art community. 

The exhibition In a Skirt – Sometimes / Art of the 1990s is an attempt at a retrospective survey documenting the aforementioned shift in Czech art of the 1990s through select works by women artists. The show brings together 14 artists: namely, Veronika Bromová, Milena Dopitová, Lenka Klodová, Martina Klouzová-Niubó, Zdena Kolečková, Alena Kotzmannová, Markéta Othová, Míla Preslová, Elen Řádová, Štěpánka Šimlová, Kateřina Šedá, Michaela Thelenová, Markéta Vaňková, and Kateřina Vincourová. It is accompanied by a publication documenting the participants´ output during the period from 1990 to the present day, and setting it within a broader sociological and, most notably, art-historical context.

He is interested in nowadays visual and linguistic language in the broadest sense possible as basis for communication and culture. The overall result of the project tries to put accent on global modernists visuality in contrast to local impossibility of translation of specific languages and individual codes.
