Equal Opportunities

Equal Opportunities

14. 11. – 30. 11. 2007, c2c Gallery, Prague

The Equal Opportunities project presents several exhibitions in one. The core is the original concept of Ivana Moncoľová, presenting the works of Slovak and Serbian artists responding to the issue of equal opportunities. As part of the Prague version, the selection was extended by several artists who are more urgently affected by the right to equal opportunities than the majority of the Czech population, either because of their origin, sexual orientation or skin color. At the same time, the exhibition also includes authors who may not declare themselves artists, however, their social or health disabilities function as an "invitation" to the company of "professional artists".

The purpose of the exhibition is therefore basically twofold: firstly, to draw attention to topics and problems related to discrimination on the grounds of race, gender, disability, age, etc., and secondly to take into account the rules of equal opportunities in the actual selection of artists, to which the disadvantage is of personal concern. One of the aims of this mixed concept is to point out the permeable boundaries between an artist who deals with discrimination and a talented amateur who experiences discrimination.
