Venue: Entrance hall of the Postsparkasse building designed by Otto Wagner, Vienna

The exhibition explores the period between 1910 and 1920 — an era of early and mature stages of Czech Cubism represented by the most noted proponents of this style, architects and artists Pavel Janák, Josef Gočár, Vlastislav Hofman, Josef Chochol, Otakar Novotný, Antonín Procházka and Jiří Kroha. Works of other outstanding artists of the Czech avant-garde will also be featured in the exhibition (Josef Čapek, Václav Špála, Emil Filla, Otto Gutfreund, art theoretician Václav Vilém Štech, and others).

The exhibition traces the roots of Cubism in connection with Vienna Modernism (Geometric Secession) and discusses the collaboration of architects with Czech artists associated in the Group of Fine Artists, the Artěl Cooperative, the Prague Art Workshops and the Union of Czech Artwork. It shows how the art movement’s theoretical principles were translated into practice in the fields of furniture-making, interior decoration, ceramics, glass, metalwork and graphic design. Combined with architecture, a unique creative style thus emerged, which in the recent years has become the focus of renewed interest on the part of both art specialists and the broad public.

Most of the objects are from the collections of the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague, and will be shown along with items on loan from the National Museum and the National Technical Museum in Prague, and from private collections.

An English-German catalogue will be published to accompany the exhibition.
