Milota Havrankova | View from a window17.01.2020 - 15.03.2020
Milota Havránková (1945) is an exceptional and to a large degree unique photographer who has been active in Czech and Slovak photography for quite some time; a certain, still persisting lack of categorization and comprehension of her work is therefore all the more surprising. An experimenter who continues to break with tradition and change her style, she entered the art scene at the end of the 1960s. She started using her own reality as a matrix for further creative interventions and revealed an invisible relationship and emotional logic by means of staged analogue photography with seemingly random compositions. The exhibition will focus on this crystallising period of the 1960s and 1970s when almost all the key features and symbols of her later hybrid artwork appeared.

Josef Chuchma | Cut-Outs (of Normalization)13.09.2019 - 03.11.2019
The exhibition is a selection from Josef Chuchma’s archive – it shows works taken during the seventies and eighties that were, with a few exceptions, never published. The works are from a time when Chuchma wandered through the streets of Prague with a focused aimlessness or when he repeatedly visited certain locations in his hometown that he tried to immortalize and chronicle. He frequented concerts and music festivals, he traveled to Poland and to the religious festivities in Tchenstochova, he made portraits. Normalization – the twenty years after the suppression of the Prague Spring in 1968 – had its specific esthetic and social atmosphere. The way of living was slow and organized, anxious and with little delights. The author believes that his photographs carry normalization’s imprint.
