Malík urvi II
Ten years after, the artistic group Pode Bal has prepared a sequel to their famous and controversial exhibition Malík Urvi (a pun meaning literally “tear off the little finger” and implying “little whores”). The original exhibition took place in January 2000 at the Václav Špála Gallery, displaying 36 portraits of former collaborators with the StB police, KGB, StB officers and communist officials who maintained their important positions in Czech society after the Velvet Revolution. The portraits included a biography of the relevant person with information about his/her pre- and post-revolution activities. The exhibition had an extraordinary viewership and met with unheard-of interest from both the media and the general public. The project launched a discussion in artistic circles and became a key event in art focusing on the political and social aspects of the Velvet Revolution.
