Youth, emotions, desire for a better world ― the Ústí nad Labem House of Arts launches a new exhibition about the young generation facing the contemporary world’s problems

The exhibition has been curated by Václav Jánoščík and Martina Johnová.

Megan Clark, Romana Drdová, David Fesl, Kristýna Fingerlandová, Anka Helfert, Kateřina Holá, Amálie Hubeňáková, Jakub Jansa a Karolína Juříková, Marie Tučková, Jiří Pitrmuc, Anna Ročňová, David Střeleček, Anna Witt
