Currently, the whole successful exhibition is being moved to the Amsterdam Festival of Animation, Klik. The six days’ programme includes presentations, projections of movies, workshops and exhibitions; “Searching for Beauty” is one of them.
“We are glad to get our exhibition to Amsterdam, the city of design, virtual culture and experimenting. The work of Slovak authors will be confronted with the international art scene, what is a priceless experience,” said the director of the Slovak Design Centre, Mária Rišková.
The “Searching for Beauty” project has been created by artists Michaela Čopíková and Veronika Obertová, who work under the Ové Pictures brand, and curator Mária Rišková from the Slovak Design Centre for the occasion of the Slovak presidency of the Council of the European Union.
The project is aimed at defining our current understanding of beauty. Themes include, for example, a change of attitude to housing estates and a change in the way they are perceived aesthetically or the development of the relationship to an industrial heritage. The aim is to depict the newest themes and 'new beauty' (of Slovakia and other EU countries).
Spectators in Slovakia will see the exhibition “Searching for Beauty” at the beginning of 2017 in Bratislava.
