Veronika Zajačiková’s curatorial practice refers to the possibility of an international dialogue through art.

From September 2010 Zajačiková is an MA student in Curatorial Studies, Faculty of Art and Design, Jan Evangelista Purkyně University, Ústí nad Labem, Czech Republic. She is currently preparing an exhibition at Emil Filla Gallery, Ústí nad Labem, Czech Republic. In 2010 she curated two solo shows of students from Academy of Fine Arts in Prague: Po druhé (For the Second Time), Klubovna 2.patro, Prague, CZ.

Anton Terziev deals with various contemporary subjects, often with sharp irony. His iconography possesses harsh and critical imagery associated with a specific aestheticization of pain reflecting a common metaphor of governing power relationships in society.
