On 7 September 2012 a large exhibition of works by Czech contemporary artists under the title OUT OF REALITY was opened in the cultural centre MUSICON in Roskilde as a part of the Roskilde Festival of Art.

The curators chose works by twelve Czech artists who were mainly influenced by the life in the countryside, mostly at Vysočina. Another connection can be seen in the artists’ endless endeavour to express themselves figuratively using classical art techniques.
