Dům Válovek

This initiative constitutes an attempt to initiate discussion about the estate of the Válová sisters, closely linked to their birthplace of Kladno, and deal with the question of what to do with the house in which they lived and worked, as well as with the conserved artefacts. The general awareness about the importance of the Válová sisters’ artistic legacy in Kladno is, in many respects, insufficient and has not received wider attention. The goal of the project is to increase interest and initiate steps at the municipal level of Kladno, and to appeal to the National Gallery and the Ministry of Culture, which would ultimately lead to both a discursive and financial investment for the preservation of their legacy.

Supported with a grant of 40,000 CZK
