Marie Lukáčová

Marie Lukáčová is a Czech artist who works primarily with video and installation. Her films transform symbols borrowed from politics, mythology, geology and science—moving across various time levels and locations, addressing the questions of uncertain future through specific narratives and poetics. The films of Marie Lukáčová stand out by their immediacy and by vibrating our imagination. The fragmentation of references from politics, mythology, science and pop culture creates a mosaic of an interconnected yet intricate contemporary world. Lukáčová graduated from the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design, Prague. She also undertook studies at the University of Technology, Brno in the Faculty of Fine Arts and at Kunstakademie Mainz in Germany. She is one of the Fourth Wave feminist group founders, which initiated a public debate on sexism at universities in 2017. Lukáčová won prizes at the International Short Film Festival Oberhausen and at the Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival. In 2019 she was nominated for the Jindřich Chalupecký Award.
