Children from Absurdland draws the reader into the adventures of the heroine and her classmates. Seemingly fictional stories of children absurd landscape full of surprises and unexpected twists are based on real works of artists of the new millennium, mainly from the former Eastern bloc. The author reconstructed the significant cultural tendencies and actual achievements of artists of her generation in the form of short stories. She focused mainly on the local art community event, which was witnessed and artistic personalities that influenced it. In places it is rather an allusion to the discursive topics and their loose interpretations. Short episodes combines children's way of telling heroine Magda. The ambition of the book is not complete and exhaustive reproduction of phenomena of contemporary events, but rather their freely conceived illustrations.
