The synthesis of videoart, tendentious documentary and music videos from American and European artists, which sensitiely react on the authentic social and demographic problems of mostly the American society. Music plays here a significant role and a means of expressing the themes of individual works. Despite the seemingly entertaining musical format the authors managed to underline the very important and interethnic relations and tensions heavily discussed today. The works come from various contexts and their connection in one exhibition only multiplies deeper levels and meanings that could otherwise remain unnoticed. Moreover, this exhibition represents a new thematic chapter in the exhibition history of Galerie Rudolfinum.
