The contemporary art exhibition Family Happiness is a comment on forced removal of children from their homes and their placing in state childcare institutions. At this exhibition, organised by an NGO Life Together in cooperation with the National Technical Museum, over 20 Czech, Slovak and international artists will show their works that critically reflect on the problem of the forced removal and address the crippling effect these official interventions have upon the family relations. Furthermore these works raise the issue of (in)complete families in a wider political, social and cultural context.The exhibition takes place in the Information and Culture Centre of the National Technical Museum in Nostický palace on Maltézské square. It will present videos, objects, installations, prints, photographs and comics.
