In the second half of the 1990s art became more intimate, in but form and expression, or many works were deliberately made not to look like art. The young generation of post-conceptual artists includes figures such as Michal Pěchouček, Ján Mančuška, Kryštof Kintera, Tomáš Vaněk, and Zbyněk Baladrán.
In the first decade of the 21st century the Czech art scene like elsewhere around the globe has seen a variety of artistic opinions and outlooks arise. The generation of the new millennium includes artists such as Evžen Šimera, Daniel Pitín, Jakub Hošek, Ladislava Gažiová, Luděk Rathouský, Jaromír Novotný, Alice Nikitinová, and the duo Vasil Artamonov and Alexej Klyuykov. There are also artists who work under pseudonyms (Masker, Point, Pasta). Cultural centres run by artists have also come to occupy an important place in the art scene (Trafačka, Meetfactory). There have been some remarkable examples of complex conceptual installations, such as the work of Eva Koťátková and Ján Mančuška. Koťátková’s creative work is a means by which she explores her own position. Internationally she is however in a strong position and is one of the most successful Czech artists. Mančuška often works with texts, transforming even a banal description of a situation into an extraordinary tale. One of the figures in the ‘documentary turn’ in Czech art is Zbyněk Baladrán. Socially engaged art has also been gaining ground (in the work of groups such as Rafani, Pode Bal, Guma Guar, Ztohoven). Marek Ther, Jiří Černický, and Alena Kotzmannová, for instance, work in the medium of video. There are almost no examples of sculpture in its pure form among artists of the millennium generation. New sculpture is best represented by the work of Krištof Kintera, Dominik Lang, and Pavla Sceranková. Kinter’s monumental work My Light Is Your Life (2009) or his monument to suicide victims at the base of Nusle Bridge in Prague titled Of One's Own Volition – Memento Mori(2009–2011) are among the best work to have emerged in recent years. Finally, there are the artists engaged in creating new situations in which they use human relations and needs as their raw material. A typical example of this approach is provided in the projects of Kateřina Šedá.
