An exhibition by multimedia artist Daniel Pešta, whose work was featured in the 2013 Venice Biennale, will now be exhibited comprehensively for the first time in the Czech Republic. The project, which is dominated by two large-format pieces of video art, is about the phenomenon of the Romani issue and individuals’ attitudes toward it.

The exhibition will take place from 19 July until 5 September 2014 in the town of Litomyšl. The attractive exhibition spaces of the town’s chateau (Zámecké návrší) are welcoming the project, which was created for the Venice Biennale last year through a contribution from the Association of Romani Citizens of Lysá nad Labem.
