Samizdat and Expedition Editions (12. 11. 2013)
Added: November 13, 2013
An exhibition dedicated to Edice Expedice (Expedition Editions), a series begun by Václav Havel and his friends in 1975, and more. Visitors to the Lucerna Passage will learn about the production of banned books in the normalisation period in Czechoslovakia, and how they were smuggled abroad, from those who served in that era’s secret underground publishers and who put themselves in danger by doing so. This Václav Havel Library event will open up a subject covered in the forthcoming VHL Notebooks No. 16 entitled The Expedition Editions Story.
