Július Koller is one of the most important Eastern European artists working since the 1960s, whose art had and has considerable international significance. This is the most comprehensive exhibition of the Slovak artist’s work to date, documenting his independent contribution to the neoavantgarde and based on painstaking research into his art and archives. Koller’s work developed in critical distance to the communist authorities and their official art, and it also questioned traditions in modernism and the conventions of the Western art business. Since the mid-1960s he designed Antihappenings and Antipictures, creating a playfully ironic oeuvre that combined a Dadaist spirit with radical-skeptical stance.
