The MOCAK Collection: New Edition

The theme of the new display of the MOCAK Collection will be artistic media. We will present their most important forms: photography, painting, sculpture, drawing and video. When it comes to contemporary art, media have no absolute boundaries; they can be broadened, combined and hybridised. So many possible permutations exist that individual artists are able to discover or invent a medium that will help them reveal their talent and formulate their own artistic theme. In this exhibition, we also illustrate artists' ideas on how to individualise media. Photography offers the greatest opportunities and variety, its point of departure being neutral documentation, with the pinnacle of its sophistication – realistic unreality. The hardest medium – which is perhaps why it remains so highly regarded – is painting, where mistakes are irreversible and meaning is very easy to distort. These media, in all their complexity, are richly represented at the current display of the Collection.
