In my current research I'm dealing with paradigms of the American feminist art theory which brought in the 1980s and 1990s new energy, issues and topics to the classical approach in the field of art history and art practice.
Contemporary American art theoreticians based on feminist art projects of the 1970s and 1980s dealt in their texts also with the topic of institutional critique and they brought new ideas of anti-hierarchic functioning founded on empowerment, collaboration and solidarity.

My goal is to make research in Vienna's libraries (Universitätbibliothek, Bibliothek of the Akademie der bildenden Kunst, Arbeitskammer Bibliothek etc.) among the texts and publications by feminist art and sociologist theoreticians concerning art and institutional praxis which are not available in the Czech Republic (Marcia Tucker, Linda Nochlin, Mira Schor, Carol Duncan, Janet Wolff, Kaja Silverman etc.). and give a lecture in f.e.a. forum experimentelle architecture on the results of my research.
