The retrospective exhibition of Kurt Gebauer (1941) will be the most comprehensive probe to date into the sixty-year-long oeuvre of this original sculptor and pedagogue who has had a lasting influence on Czech public space. His lifelong interest in figuration (not the objective figure, but the perceived, animated and moving one) led Gebauer to a form of expression that is entirely unique in both the Czech and international contexts, and it also allowed him to offer a sensitive but biting critique of the political situation both before and after 1989.
