Simona Blahutová
*23. 9. 1980 Zlín, lives and works in Prague

The recurring theme in my art is a Power and Zeitgeist, the spirit of the times.
My effort is to deal with selected events of modern history, which are often interpreted in terms of black and white, in spite of having no simple answer. I choose the crucial moments or periods when their key players faced internal conflicts and boundary situations. /Operation Anthropoid, Germans who fought against Nazism, the miracle of the priest in Čihošť and his murder by the state police, the Cold War and the 1980s atmosphere in Eastern Europe, the dark side of modern Western society/
