Veronika Bromová (*1966) graduated from the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design at the Studio of Illustration and Graphic Design of Jiří Šalamoun and went on a residency at Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. She became known primarily for her digitally processed photographs; she was one of the first Czech artists to experiment in this field in the 1990s. She also works in video, installation and performance. Her key themes include corporeality and the body which she stylizes and deforms in various ways. She explores it from the perspective of intimacy and its loss as well as from the perspective of gender. She is usually the main actor in her photographic series. This is also true for her renowned cycle Views which is shocking for its anatomical cross-sections going beyond the limits of nudity, under the surface of the body. At the same time, she alludes to human mortality and explores the boundary between reality and fiction. She tries to push the limits and go beyond our conventional notions of nudity, privacy and intimacy. Veronika Bromová is a holder of the Grant of the Prague City Hall and the Special Grant of the Soros Center for Contemporary Art Prague. She won the first place in the competition for the 58th Venice Biennial of Contemporary Art and a Grammy Award for the best CD cover of the band Šum Svistu. She exhibited her work at Mumok in Vienna, the Czech Center in Paris and A2 Gallery in Halle. In 2002–2011, she headed the Studio of New Media II at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague.
