The art collective Rafani have exhibited extensively in the Czech Republic and elsewhere since their founding in 2000 by four students from Prague’s Academy of Fine Arts. Their constitution states that they ‘build on the everyday experience of wide social strata; we analyse it and look for points that go beyond the sphere of the mundane. With a conscious art form we attempt to reflect their interests, dreams, fears, and ambitions. What we express is in harmony with their ideas; we speak the language of bitter truth.’
