Meda Mládková (Sokolová) studied economics and political science in Geneva, where she moved right after the Second World War. In Switzerland she worked for a journal called Skutečnost. Later on she moved to Paris, where she studied art history and met her future husband Jan Viktor Mládek (employee of IMF). Thanks to him, she was introduced to František Kupka, whose work became the core of the Jan and Meda Mládek colection. In the 1960s Mládková visited Czechoslovakia and saw the studios of the artists that she collected. Beginning in 1984, she was not allowed to visit Czechoslovakia, but she was able to return to her homeland for good in 1989. She founded the Jan and Meda Mládek Foundation and Museum Kampa.
