Although Alžběta Jungrová is one of the founding members of the 400 ASA association, she has not exhibited in our gallery so far. This will be remedied on Thursday, 23 November at 6 pm, with the opening of her documentary series State of Mind, in which she focuses on street photography in New York City.

A region in which Polish, Czech, German and Austrian influences intermingled for centuries, which went through a turbulent history and experienced the expansion and decline of heavy industry. A region well known as the Black Land because of its mining character. A region that Gola has been systematically depicting in his photographs for three decades, not only as black, but as black and white, as it shows the positive changes which brought three decades after the fall of the communist regime.
