Magdalena Jetelová (* 1946) is known worldwide for her monumental wooden sculptures. Her chairs and tables were exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art New York, the Museum des 20. Jahrhunderts Vienna and the Tate Gallery London. Her work can be found in the Hirschhorn Museum Washington, the Centre Georges Pompidou Paris and the Collection Ludwig. Equally significant are her photographic works in which she uses laser-technique and her spectacular installations, which transform space and perception.
Walter Storms discovered the artist in Prague, showed her work in the west for the first time in 1983 and has been attending and supporting her international carrier ever since. From 1990 until 2004 Jetelová was a professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Düsseldorf, since 2004 she has been teaching at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. At the beginning of 2008 she accepted a visiting professorship at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague.
