Thirty-five villagers attend the meeting including a few familiar faces. Kateřina continues to present her forthcoming project for Tate Modern and to answer questions from the villagers.
Afterwards everyone is invited to think about the identity and specifities of Bedřichovice, through drawings and questions such as: ’which words do you use and don’t you use in the village?’; ‘which shoes and clothes do you wear in the village?’ and ‘do you know some English words?’.

On Wednesday 3 August, only the eighty villagers taking part in the project will be invited to what the artist calls the first ‘creative’ meeting. This meeting will mark the second step of the project where the final group of eighty villagers will suggest and discuss activities to present in London on Saturday 3 September.

We look forward to the details of the next meeting.

I found the thematic approach very helpful given I have always found Miro a tad impenetrable. The political upheaval provided an important context for Miro's work, but there were times when even then I found it challenging to share Miro's concerns and anger. The narrative was particularly helpful and the accompanying book is excellent. However, other than the tryptichs which were wonderful, I struggled to engage with Miro's work aesthetically. For me the exhibition was an excellently curated historical document rather than an aesthetic artistic experience.
