The Human Face – Freedom or Death: paintings and sculptures by 37 Slovak and Czech artists. And one American is running at Bratislava Castle’s third floor exhibition area until April 30, 2022. It‘s also a tribute to the 100th anniversary of the birth of Alexander Dubček – a politician and key figure in Czechoslovak history.
The artists‘ work – created over several decades – reflects this theme as symbols of the crucifixion. The cross, or dialogue with death in tribute to social events in the late 1960s and late ‘80s early ‘90s. These periods brought about major changes in people’s behaviour, attitudes, actions, and relationship between personal activity and social events. People’s internal struggle were symbolically portrayed by artists through paintings and sculptures.
