" With the exhibition Everything is everyone, we want to take a position that is based on the growing awareness of the interconnectedness and complexity of the processes and systems of which we are a part. In art that overcomes isolation, it contains grains of idealism and possibility rather than impossibility. In art that transcends vanity, but at the same time does not deny anxiety, insecurity and fears ," state the curators Jiří Ptáček and Denisa Václavová .
