CHECK Slovakia!, a project that brings into the spotlight the identity of a young European country, recently opened at Neuer Berliner Kunstverein in Berlin. Organised in cooperation with the Ján Koniarek Gallery, the exhibition will run until June 27.

The collection of works by nine artists - Erik Binder, Cyril Blažo, Tomáš Agat Blonski, Pavlína Fichta Čierna, Bohdan Hostiňák, Martin Kollár, Ilona Németh, Milan Tittel, and Emőke Vargová - ranges from classical paintings and photographs to installations and video presentations. Some artists reflect on the social and political situation in the country of their origin, while others offer a global viewpoint.
