Barbora Klímová

Brief info

The works of the Czech artist Barbora Klímová have dealt with urban, public space, its history and transformations, as well as the previously almost unwritten history of performances and actions in the ČSSR of the 1970s-80s. Replaced - Brno 2006 forms the interface of the artist's two interests. She understands her reenactments of public actions from the 1970s and 1980s as a "creative investigation of a broader context of artistic and political action in public spaces." Thus it concerns the investigation of the transformation of public space as well as the manner of dealing with it. It also has to do with the question of how the appropriation of historical material and how conversations with the actors from that time can make contexts distinguishable and differences visible.
