Czech Routes features the work of 21 painters, printmakers and sculptors, many of whom fled to Britain as racial and political refugees from National Socialism and marks the 80th anniversary of Hitler's invasion of Czechoslovakia on 15th March 1939. Also represented are works by subsequent generations of Czechoslovak artists including Irena Sedlecka, who fled her country's totalitarian Communist regime in the 1960s, as well as those who, between the 1970s and 1990s, have made the positive decision to immigrate to Britain to study and develop professionally. Czech Routes showcases work drawn primarily from the Ben Uri Collection alongside those from important private collections.

Featured artists include: Franta Belsky, Jacob Bornfriend, Dorrit Epstein (aka Dekk), Frederick Feigl, Leo Haas, Walter Herz, Anita Mandl, Emil Orlik, Irena Sedlecka, and Walter Trier, in addition to contemporary multidisciplinary artists Tereza Buskova, Mila Furstova and Tereza Stehlikova.
