With more than 1,200 exhibits from many collections, foreign as well as Czech, Czech Photography of the 20th Century is the largest comprehensive exhibition project here to date, presenting the main trends, personalities, and works of Czech photography of the last century. It follows on from a number of previous exhibitions featuring various periods of Czech and Czechoslovak photography compiled by Rudolf Skopec, Anna Fárová, Antonín Dufek, Jaroslav Anděl, Pavel Scheufler, Daniela Mrázková, Vladimír Remeš, Josef Moucha, and other historians and curators of photography.

The exhibition originated as a special project under the auspices of the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague and is being held in collaboration with the City Gallery Prague.

The tremendous quantity of work, mostly period originals, means that the exhibition must take place at three different locations. The Museum of Decorative Arts is where the introductory part is being held, with Impressionist and Art Nouveau Pictorialism, news and documentary photography of the 1910s and the 1920s, purist Pictorialism, picture poems of Czech Poetism, works made during the transition from Pictorialism to Modernism, and the beginnings of abstract photography.

In the City Gallery Prague at the House of the Stone Bell, the exhibition comprises works from various avant-garde movements, from Constructivism to New Objectivity and Surrealism, as well as traditional portraits, social-documentary photography, works by German photographers living in interwar Czechoslovakia, and documentary works from the beginning of modern photojournalism, the Second World War, and the three years of restored democracy from the liberation to the Communist takeover.

The third section, the most extensive, is in the City Gallery Prague exhibition halls at the Municipal Library, covering the development of photography from 1948 to 2000. It features Socialist Realism from the harshest period of Communist totalitarianism, works created outside the official mainstream, works in the spirit of the poetry of everyday life, Art Informel, staged photography, photography in Conceptual Art, Land Art, and Body Art, various trends in documentary photography and photojournalism, multimedia works of the last three decades, the renascence of photographic portraiture as well as works by a number of contemporary artists employing photographic media. The exhibits are placed in individual sections based on period, topic, and style considerations, and are accompanied by books, journals, and catalogues from the relevant period.

Not wanting to prepare an exhibition merely of works by the most important photographers such as Drtikol, Sudek, Rössler, Funke, Štyrský, Koudelka, Saudek, Štreit, and Kratochvíl, we have sought to document various creative trends with photographs by lesser known and sometimes even totally forgotten photographers.

The exhibition is accompanied by a Guide to Czech Photography published in Czech and English versions by the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague and KANT.

The Patron of the exhibition is Livia Klausová, wife of the President of the Czech Republic. The exhibition is supported by the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic.
