Beyond anatomical illustrations, the visual arts deal with the human body, as the self-image of the individual’s identity, in various ways. Frequently, those who examine gender roles are women; they not only depict injury and dysfunctionality in their art, but also display the mechanisms of control and power to which the individual is subjected. To think of the human being, the body and mind as a whole is a complex matter. It is legitimate to question to what extent our actions actually follow our own will and at what point convention begins to determine our lives. Kunstmuseen Krefeld have juxtaposed in a single exhibition two major artists whose oeuvre is strongly characterised by the exploration of physical and mental forces: Eva Kotʼátková, born 1982 in Prague, and the Italian conceptual artist Ketty La Rocca who passed away in 1976. While the younger of the two analyses education and upbringing, Ketty La Rocca, as a pioneer of feminist art, investigates stereotyped images of women. The common theme that runs through their work is the use of language and writing as well as the importance both attach to the spoken and written word in their art. Therefore, it is only logical that instead of a standard exhibition catalogue, a sort of guidebook was conceived which in itself functions as a glossary and where both artists communicate with each other through the texts and images.
