The Slovak New Wave

The 80s

Text by Lucia L. Fiˇserová, Tomásˇ Posˇpech.

This publication presents eight Czech photographers of Slovak origin working in Prague in the 1970s and 80s: Tono Stano, Rudo Prekop, Vasil Stanko, Martin Strba, Miro Svolík, Kamil Varga, Peter Zupník and Jano Pavlík, known collectively as "the Slovak New Wave." The group--described variously as "photographers living in Bohemia" or "Czech photographers of Slovak origin"--constitutes a kind of shared cultural asset for both countries and an interesting phenomenon for anyone studying the links between Czech and Slovak photography. In the 1970s and 1980s, FAMU was the only higher-education establishment in Central Europe that taught photography, and it is perhaps surprising that the members of the Slovak New Wave remained uninfluenced by the Czech photographic tradition and were able to create their own unique identity at FAMU. Despite--or possibly because of--the fact that this was never an organized group with a declared statement of purpose, their relatively homogeneous visual language became one of the first examples of postmodernism in Czechoslovakia. This volume gives special emphasis to works that were never exhibited at the time, or were shown only on the fringe of the scene.

The Slovak New Wave

The Slovak New Wave

Kamil Varga's "Ostrich" (1985) is reproduced from The Slovak New Wave, Kant's new collection of experimental 80s Czech photography. Lucia L. Fišerova writes, "In an effort to define oneself existentially in relation to the oppressive space, the theme of fences, chain link or other kinds, played a special formal and semantic role of a barrier that can, and indeed must, be surmounted, or sometimes, when there is no other choice, just remains to be looked through… Unlike the oppressiveness of four walls, into which the figures are firmly wedged, the landscape exterior provides new opportunities to exit or fly away. But even 'outside' there seemed to be no feeling of complete freedom. Bodies running into blind alleys, growing into the land head first, or with arms raised sideways in a fertile field and humbly identifying with the line of the horizon." continue to blog
