About the exhibition (Text © EYE Filmmuseum)

"The exhibition at Eye features one big installation in which numerous short films by Švankmajer are screened amidst remarkable sculptures and ‘spirited’ images, together with three Wunderkammers filled with collages, tactile objects, sick maps and ‘medium’ drawings. Švankmajer’s feature films will be screened in the cinemas at Eye."
