Das Universum des Jan Švankmajer

SOLD OUT

€26.70 (excl. VAT)

Born in 1934 in Prague, filmmaker, artist, and poet Jan Švankmajer presents objects, surreal artefacts reminiscent of collections on natural history and preserved animals, as well as drawings that on closer inspection swiftly turn out to be “absurd” creatures. Alongside finding inspiration from literature, Jan Švankmajer also turns to nature and natural history for his subject matter. His ongoing project on an “unsystematic anatomy” is the culmination of this critical and ironic inquiry into nature and evolution.
