In its collections, the Regional Gallery in Liberec holds 34 woodcut drawings by one of the leading representatives of the Czechoslovak pre- and post-war avant-garde, Adolf Hoffmeister. These unusual black-and-white collages, for which “no-one but the artist himself can determine all the sources of their creation,” became the subject for the author's film of the same name from 1970.  The main character in the cycle of prints and the animated film shown in the gallery experiences terrifying and absurd adventures rendered in an artistically surreal style, in which Hoffmeister follows his great pre-war model, the painter Max Ernst.
