The title "Check Slovakia!" is trying to draw the 
attention to the identity of a young European 
country, which can arouse interest of the 
foreigners through high quality presentation and 
finally detach from the still remaining 
remembrance of former Czechoslovakia. The 
collection of works by nine artists will present 
various media of production - ranging from 
classical painting hanged on the wall to 
installation or video, while some of them reflect 
social or political situation in the country in 
which they had originated, some of them deal with 
this context only on the margin of interest, 
while others are more “globalized". The selected 
artists had to meet the criteria set by two 
curators - Viera Jancekova (SK), who is 
acquainted with regional art scene and Alexander 
Tolnay (DE), who adds his outside standpoint.
