Anna Daučíková

Anna Daučíková is a Slovak visual artist based in Prague and Bratislava. In the 1980s, after graduating from the Academy of Fine Arts in Bratislava, she moved to Moscow, where she created a black-and-white series of photographs documenting her Muscovite and Soviet period. On her return to Bratislava in 1991 she helped found Aspekt, Slovakia’s first feminist journal. In 1994 she abandoned painting to practice installation and video art, and since 1999 she has pioneered new teaching methods at her alma mater, where she is the head of the multimedia studio. Since 2011, she has also been teaching at the Prague Academy of Fine Arts.
