The project's title refers directly to the motto of the pivotal 1939 New York World's Fair where Pilsen's native Sutnar and the members of the Czechoslovak government-in-exile were involved in the development of two exhibitions of Czechoslovak prosperity. Against the will of the Nazis whom invaded Czechoslovakia in March 1939 and whom demanded the cancellation of the country's participation, the New York exhibitions were both an act of resistance against their oppressors and an echo of a nation that had lost its independent existence. The 2019 exhibition takes the multidisciplinarydiscourse of the 1939 exhibition as its impassionate undercurrent. Eighty years later, "The World of Tomorrow" at Galerie Ladislava Sutnara assigns the Fair's motto to an ambitious group of artists who are active in diverse creative fields. The exhibition is a collection of remarkable artistic skills, invention, technique, design and effectively connects the past with the future.

"The World of Tomorrow" is both a unique display of extraordinary art in a Gesamtkunstwerk-inspired exhibition design by curator Jan Van Woensel and a celebration of SUTNARKA'S unparalleled progressive vision.
