Kudor is the confirmation of the existence of metaphysics in photographic processes that do not have a logical explanation
Kudor is a mistake that will turn into a trend
Kudor is important primarily due to its importance
Kudor is the space outside of the painting
Kudor is the new Northern Bohemian wave
Kudor is not subject to the laws of physics if it is firmly grasped ideally
Kudor is the momentary analogical criteria without general validity
Kudor is the absence of something that is a priori clear and present
Kudor is the unrealized and indescribable idea and nothing more
Kudor begins and ends with the idea of Kudor
Postmodernism as a way of thinking and artistic production was supposed to bring diversity and freedom. The new patterns completely removed all rules, which characterized the preceding periods. However, rather than a variety of ideals, contemporary art represents a field of landless expressions completely lacking a starting point, and in addition to the fact that anything is allowed, everything is everything and can be interpreted in any way in the regime of social substance.
In this situation, the Northern Bohemian Wave* emerges on the scene with an exhibition that is not in opposition of the existing patterns but instead evokes distance from them.
The exhibition Searching for Kudor is a concept that respects its own inner order, which, based on the rules presented, formulates the principle of searching for paths as a form of artistic production. Whereas observance of the defined rules that were defined for the exhibition, is, in the current artistic discursus, paradoxically a sign of nonconformity and free choice.
