Lýdia Pribišová is interested in testing the boundaries of art. In her curatorial projects, she focuses on subversive art practices that go against typical social and cultural patterns. In her work, Pribišová observes how cultural stereotypes are constructed as well as the shifting positions of individual subjects in society. She works with themes of collective memory, sharing, and local Central European history, in part by questioning social rules, conformism, and the changing role of public space in post-communist societies.
