Even over hundreds of years, the art in the exhibition has not lost its artistic potential. You can see gems by Hans von Aachen, Petr Brandl, Matthias Bernard Braun, Lucas Cranach, Francisco José Goya, Hans Holbein, Peter Paul Rubens, Karel Škréta, and many other important and renowned artists.
Havel to the Castle!
The events of the year ‘1989’ are the topic of the photography exhibition in the Trade Fair Palace. The exhibition was curated for the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution, as part of the project ‘Havel to the Castle!’
The work of approximately 30 Czech photographers, who captured revolutionary events as well as more everyday photos, is displayed in the exhibition. Of course, there are dramatic images of clashes between demonstrators and the police, streets and shop windows covered with revolutionary posters, portraits of Václav Havel, and a euphoric crowd celebrating the first free New Year's Eve.
