Artist: Anetta Mona Chisa & Lucia Tkácová
Oded Hirsch

Exhibited for the first time, two video works that touch on questions of ideology and its dissolution. Imbued with historical and biblical symbolism, Oded Hirsch’s '50 Blue' tells a personal story of father-son relationship.

'Try Again. Fail Again. Fail Better', the work of two young East European artists, Chisa and Tkacova, shows their Sisyphean struggle with a huge balloon in the shape of a fist, universal symbol of oppression and protest.
