ONLY GOOD IDEAS
NOD Praha, 15 January – 7 February 2004 Ivan Vosecký and Markéta Othová rolled themselves up into one creative ball for the sake of the exhibition Dobrý nápad (A Good Idea).

AD: PERFECT TENSE
Perfect Tense – Painting Today, Prague Castle Riding School, 19. 11 2003 – 14. 3. 2004 Jan Šerých I know that it‘s not totally in order to criticize an exhibition which (at this moment) exists only in the minds of the curators and in media ads.
