Joska Skalník was one of the leading personalities in the unofficial Czechoslovak culture movement in the 1970s-1980s. The exibition is a tribute to his lifework and presents the whole range of his œuvre, from his graphic designs to the collages and much more.
As a graphic designer, Joska Skalník created the ‘face’ of many underground publications such as Jazzova sekce, Prague’s avant-garde theatre Činoherni Klub or samizdat Revolver Revue. He also designed the logo of Občanské Forum, an initiative around Vaclav Havel in 1989. In the 1980s he was arrested for political activism together with other leading members of Jazzova sekce.
