Art With an Edge on Humanity

What I really loved about the art at MOCAK is it seamlessly blended visual arts, the digital age, and feelings of humanity.

Along with the “digital art age” very much being a present theme, there was also a lot of focus on feminine art as well – specifically beauty of women aging.

Overall I was engaged and inspired throughout my time in the MOCAK museum.

I appreciated the specific themes it strived to represent and the relevancy of connecting art with modern topics and the digital age.
