        Sometimes, although it’s rare, formal propositions can actually be politically influential. When the two meet, it’s a beautiful intersection.

      Monday, 3 October 2011 22:59

      The morbid theme of Roman Týc’s exhibition at Dvorak Sec Contemporary can be surprising for some visitors; at least this may be their first impression.
