Staged Czech and Slovak Photography

Peter Zupnik 'Dog's Day, 1985-1988'

"Staged photography is born out of boredom or dissatisfaction with the world. The photographer wants to see the world as a place where anything is possible-a place full of more beauty, more meaning, more play, more symbolism. In the face of Communism, these Czech and Slovak artists were escapists and surrealists-dreaming themselves into other realities and making photographic documents of them. Some of them say they are making pataphysical theatre--theatre of the absurd performed for the camera."
