-  The organizer and main curator of the event is Viktor Hulík.

The main objective of the organisers of this event is to present the widest range of possibilities explored in concrete and geometric art. Geometric abstraction represents one principle and an infinite number of creative possibilities. Over the past century, geometric abstraction went through interesting developments reflected in the works of artists, unique mutations, diverse syntheses and opposing forces, formal and philosophical reverberations. Even today, many artists enhance its development in new dimensions. This form of fine art has a rich tradition in many European countries.

This exhibition is showcasing a broad spectrum of generations ranging from renowned artists to the youngest protagonists. The international cooperation opens up opportunities for a deeper appreciation of other cultures through the universal medium of art.
