Jiří Stejskal – photo cycle »Bohemian Lowland« - Vernissage on September 4th, 2022

Bohemian Lowland is a forgotten name of the northernmost part of the Czech Republic, today called Schluckenauer Zipfel, a part of the former Sudetenland, which was settled by German-speaking people for centuries. Already at the end of the 18th century this area was one of the most populous in Bohemia and after 1848 it reached its peak. In the period after 1945 and the era of socialist construction came total devastation. Today, ruins can still be found in almost every municipality - industrial objects, residential buildings or sacred monuments. Since 1990 efforts have been made to restore some parts of this landscape to their original appearance. Not much can be continued, and so the old image of the landscape is lost. The exhibition shows part of Jiří Stejskal 's photo cycle, which has not yet been completed, which searches for traces of history and living places in the landscape.

  • Vernissage: Sun. 4.9., 3:30 p.m
  • Duration of the exhibition: 4.9. – 10/31/2022
