According to Foucault history now does not consist in transforming monuments and sources into documents. Traces do not present straightforward documents of specific historical events, but they pose questions concerning how and under what conditions the document itself has been formed. Likewise the photography is not mere document of its content (portrait of someone for instance), but it asks questions about its cultural, institutional, or even technological predispositions.
Jan Lesák, Jan Maštera and Václav Kopecký inquire into such “documentary” conditions. They account for their specific forms, functions or contexts (internet, research, process of creation) within highly original aesthetic framework. They revolve from document to monument; back and forth.
