The publishing house BiggBoss together with MeetFactory publishes an extensive monograph of the prominent Czech sculptor David Černý, who is one of the most prominent representatives of his generation and whose work can be considered socially engaged in many ways. The publication chronologically presents his work to date, which, in addition to its artistic quality, is also characterized by the fact that it is a unique commentary on social events in the Czech Republic and in the world over the past 25 years.

The text page of the book consists of materials from newspapers, magazines, catalogs and electronic files available in the artist's archive and was organized by the art theorist Tomáš Pospiszyl.
The authors of the graphic design are Petr Bosák, Robert Jansa, Adam Macháček (2017 Designers), multiple winners of the Most Beautiful Czech Book award.

"I hope that I am saying something with my art. But maybe someone in the future will find out that it was all about nothing, or it will somehow be completely different. Who the hell knows?” adds David Černý himself and thereby describes his lifelong tendency to search for an expression of current sculptural work.

David Černý (born 1967) – graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague, majoring in sculpture and laureate of the Jindřich Chalupecký Prize in 2000. He came to the attention of the foreign public mainly thanks to works such as Entropa from 2009 installed in the EU building on the occasion of the Czech presidency of the Council of Europe or with his clicking bus "London Booster", which was part of the Czech House during the Olympic Games in London in 2012. Černý has dozens of exhibitions in the Czech Republic and abroad and is represented in many Czech and foreign collections.
