On August 7, 2021, Czech writer, translator and experimenter Bohumila Grögerová would celebrate her 100th birthday. As diverse as her work was, ranging from translations from several languages to active participation in the international movement of Concretism, to book journals and essays, one can find several common denominators not only in all her texts, but also in her way of thinking and living her life. The exhibition is based on the principles of her work (deconstruction, collage, layering space-time planes, universalism) and on her almost fifty-year collaboration with Josef Hiršal. It creates a dialogue with the present, taking into account some of the aspects of Bohumila Grögerová’s work and life that no viewer or reader has ever seen or read before. The Star Summer Palace is the ideal setting for the presentation of the author’s puns on the overall permeability of the world (“…what happens in me happens in the house”) or her fascination with quantum physics, the universe, fractals, kaleidoscopes, and mirrors.
