The exhibition builds on the concepts of work and production perceived as a basis for the current human development, which is being imagined in multiple instantiations in the dialogue between Martin Zet and the artistic duo Mona Vatamanu & Florin Tudor. The show presents different perspectives which complement each other despite the apparent distinctive means of representation and processes of work of the artists.

Martin Zet (born in 1959) is an artist, sculptor and performance artist. He studied sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague in 1979–1985. In his work he deals with social memory in art, the political format of human behaviour and the contact of idealistic visions with everydayness. In 2010 – 2016 he worked as a head of the Video Art Studio at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Brno. As a sculptor and performer he takes part in many exhibitions and events in the Czech Republic as well as abroad. In his PhD thesis in the Studio of Sculpture at the Prague Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design he deals with the work of his father, sculptor Miloš Zet (1920–1995).

Mona Vatamanu (born 1968) and Florin Tudor (born 1974) work together since 2000. They studied painting at the National University of Arts in Bucharest in 1992–1998. Their artistic practice spans diverse media including video, installation, painting, performance. The common denominator of their focus is on substantial issues with a transformative potential in the society such as public space, precariousness, postsocialist transformation, colonisation.
