Barbora Šlapetová & Lukáš Rittstein (CZ)

For already 20 years, Barbora Šlapetová and Lukáš Rittstein have been both recognized as one of the most remarkable artists at the Czech scene. It is well demonstrated by the prestigious Jindřich Chalupecký Award or Magnesia Litera Award won for a book entitled Proč je noc černá (Why the Night Is Black). They have represented the Czech Republic with their work also at international exhibitions EXPO Shanghai 2010 and EXPO Milano 2015.

The theme of the multimedia artistic projects on which they collaborate together is the clash of the last surviving native tribes with the globalized civilization that is derived from their repeated expeditions to Western Papua.
