“For us at the Bratislava City Gallery (GMB), this is the exhibition of the year,” the gallery’s director Ivan Jančár tells journalists upon its opening.
He is talking about the Matej Krén exhibition being held in the gallery’s premises on Panská Street, complemented by the works of his father Juraj.

Krén’s works, created from books, are indeed fascinating installations. For this particular exhibition only, in the City Gallery of Bratislava, a total of 29 Slovak and Czech libraries and publishing houses, as well as one German library, have provided their books.
