When?

  • Wed 16. 10. 2019 – Sat 30. 11. 2019

An exhibition and communication project on a site steeped in memory challenges us to better education about the media. It homes in on how a state coup was communicated, before the advent of the internet and social networks. The exhibit covers the whole range from samizdats to the fall of censorship during the TV broadcast from Letná on 25 November 1989. The extensive accompanying programme weighs up just how we have made use of the opportunity to cultivate public communication in a free world. Symbolizing the fragility of memory, the exhibition features previously unseen photos from the archive of Jaroslav Krejčí, whose negatives were stained by the flood to uncanny effect.
