David Černý, a Czech controversial sculptor, prefers to place his work within the public spaces of his hometown, Prague, or other cities than to put it in sterile galleries and museums. For him, this is the way to invite locals and visitors to discover his art, and create a space for reaction and discussion. While staying at Bohemia Apartments, we highly recommend you to see his creativity so let’s have a look around his current or past work in Prague!
