Rudolf Valenta left socialist Czechoslovakia in 1970; renouncing the environment that was his home and the nurturing place of his profession. In the modern world, the phenomenon of mobility is
considered to be an important tool for unifying Europe, with greater mobility being both initiated and supported. During the years of Valenta’s exile and his artistic career in Germany (Berlin), Czech society had transformed; with its integration into a unified Europe and adoption of a new scale of values and beliefs.
