The German language book of Vladimír Birgus and Jan Mlčoch examines the individual movements and tendencies in photography throughout the 20th century. These include early-century styles (Pictorialism, documentary and reportage photography), modern photographic trends of the twenties, Surrealist experimentation and Poetism, postwar reportage and documentary photography, art photography and its various offshoots (The Happening, Land Art, Conceptual Art and Body Art), to staged and portrait photography of the late 20th century. Almost two hundred photographers have been selected, among them Josef Sudek, František Drtikol, Jaromír Funke, Jaroslav Rössler, Karel Hájek, Václav Jírů, Vilém Reichmann, Jan Reich, Jan Saudek, Josef Koudelka, and others. The reproductions of images lent from Czech and foreign collections offer a complex overview of 20th-century photography in the Bohemian lands.

This book was published by the Kunst- und Ausstellungshalle in Bonn collaboration with Kant publishing house and Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague to accompany the exhibition held in the Kunst- und Ausstellungshalle in Bonn from the 13th of March 2008 to the 26th of July, 2009.
The English version will be issued in spring 2010.
