Plagát Zdravé dieťa v rodine, 1940. Author / source: Andrej Kováčik.
The exhibition dedicated to art and propaganda from the period of 1939 to 1945 which is a period of the first Slovak state and one of the most controversial periods of Slovak modern history.
Curators of the exhibition - Katarina Bajcurova, Petra Hanakova, Bohunka Koklesova - write:
- The primary goal is (self)knowledge; aesthetic experience and the "joy" of art is only of secondary importance here. Our aim is to provide a more objective and multi-faceted image that uncovers as much as possible of the contradictory nature and complexity of this period by reflecting the diverse positions of the operations of art and visual culture and even "lack of culture." None of this would have been possible without the material which represents the dark side of fascist propaganda - because it creates the proper context for works with a different opinion and standpoint.
