Tacita Dean
— Ztráta / Czech Photos


Start: on Thursday, October 10, at 6 pm
Curator: Pavel Vančát

Renowned British artist Tacita Dean took the photographs for ‘Czech Photos’ (1991/2002) as a student during her stay in Prague in 1991, but she did not present the 326 photographs until 2003. As she says: “They are like the remains of Prague, which no longer exists, a kind of capsule.” This exhibition also includes the 16 mm black and white film ‘Ztráta’ (1991/2002), whose title translates as ‘Loss’, which is an ambiguous record of a lecture at the Czech Technical University in Prague. Both artworks are presented in Prague for the first time.

Start: on Thursday, October 10, at 6 pm

However, its members had contact with an extant and “fragrant, shiny and luminous capitalism” (as they perceived it at the time of their adolescence) already before the fall of the iron curtain made it possible, which in turn deeply affected them. This experience and the spiritual foundation of some of them have been combined with spiritual contact, which was helped by previously unavailable psychotropic substances. The group also achieved visionary states while gathering in a Bratislava apartment on Radlinského Street.
