Expozitia prezinta activitatea Directiei de urmarie a Securitatii statului (StB). Vrand-nevrand, politia politica comunista StB, mai exact militarii ei care au lucrat la directia de urmarire, a reusit sa surprinda (pe langa persoanele urmarite) si imaginea Pragai in anii ‘70 si ‘80 ai secolului XX. Expozitia a fost pregatita de Institutul pentru studiul regimurilor totalitare, in colaborare cu Arhiva Departamentului Securitatii. Alaturi de expozitie va invitam sa luati parte la doua discutii panel si la o proiectie de film.

Cehoslovacia, 1982. Regimul totalitar este invincibil. Antonin, un membru al politiei secrete, este plin de o furie surda si totul in jur – serviciul si viata de familie – il epuizeaza si plictiseste. Devine obsedat de Klara, o fata pe care nu are nicio sansa s-o castige. Lupta lui Antonin pentru a o avea doar pentru el il va intoarce nu doar impotriva inamicilor regimului, ci si impotriva propriilor tovarasi si a sistemului pe care il protejeaza.

ENGLISH VERSION

The exhibition of photographs taken by the Czechoslovak (communist) Secret Police’s (StB) Surveillance Directorate between 1969-89. They were taken by people who were morally twisted and wicked at heart. They were not looking for artistic glory, but were driven by a desire for power and a need to wield control over others. In spite of this, in providing a most faithful portrait of the reality of life in Czechoslovakia in the 1970s and 80s, the photographs that you were never supposed to see,  have an unusually artistic quality. The exhibition will be accompanied by a panel discussion about life under totalitarian regime and dealing with the past, as well as by the best Czech movie of the year 2010, which deals with the topic.

WALKING TOO FAST

Czechoslovakia, 1982. The totalitarian regime seems interminable and imperishable. Antonín, a member of the secret police, uneasy, tyrannical, perhaps even psychopathic, is percolating with unvoiced anger and desperation. Bored with everything, he aims his demons at a seemingly clear but in fact unattainable target – a young woman named Klára. It is not love, not passion but a burning desire for the illusion of escape from the clutches of drabness and boredom. Antonín’s absurd attempt to win Klára over pits him against not only the regime’s traditional enemies but also his own people and the system itself. When he breaks the rules of the organization he serves, it is neither a civic gesture nor a political one. It is rebellion, purely personal and wholly savage.
