Jiří Sozanský: AMNESIA
- Where: Václav Havel Library, Ostrovní 13, Prague 110 00
- When: December 12, 2019, 19:00 – 21:00
Discussion with the authors of the publication AMNÉZIE (AMNESIA), issued in connection with an exhibition of work by Jiří Sozanský at the Municipal House (15.10.2019–17.1.2020).
Both the publication and the exhibition recall important figures such as Josef Čapek, Emil Filla, Milada Horáková, Záviš Kalandr, Jan Zahradníček, Jiří Stránský, Jan Zajíc, Jan Palach, Ivan Martin Jirous and Václav Havel. These personalities – distinguished artists, scientists, journalists, politicians, civic activists and citizens unknown in their time – represent a set of people who shared a similar destiny: they displayed courage and stood up to the two totalitarian systems of the 20th century, Nazism and communism.
Alongside the project’s creator Jiří Sozanský, the discussion will involve philosopher Martin Palouš, journalist Vlastimil Ježek and historian Petr Koura, as well as Libuše Heczková, Josef Vojvodík and Jan Wiendl, who are Bohemists and literary scientists at Charles University’s Faculty of Arts.
The evening will also feature the presentation of the publication SYMPOSION 27 and an autograph signing session.
