The story is about the abandoned military city Milovice which is located 40 km from Prague. During the last century the city functioned as a military zone for Austrian-Hungarian army (before 1918), Czechoslovak army (1918-1938), German army (1938-1945) and Soviet army (1947-1989).  The Soviet army left the city after the fall of communism in 1989.  Today, the small city with ten thousand inhabitants, is surrounded by great number of ruins.
I did collection of wall paint fragments from three different buildings from 3 different periods of Milovice military history (Austrio-Hungarian, German, Soviet). Then I tried to reconstruct it again in a gallery space. The wall was framing the space, were European history happened. Now it refers to "emptiness", "abandoned" and "ruin",
