Bucurestiul gazduieste o expozitie unica de fotografii pe care nu ar fi trebuit sa le vedeti niciodata

Bucuresti, 14 Noiembrie, 2011

Cu ocazia aniversarii revolutiei de catifea din Cehoslovacia, Centrul Ceh la Bucuresti organizeaza evenimentul „Praga prin obiectivul politiei secrete“.

Evenimentul se va desfasura pe parcursul intregii zile de joi, 17 noiembrie, la sediul Institutului Cultural Roman (Aleea Alexandru 38) si va include discutii panel, o expozitie si proiectie de film.


Expozitia „Praga prin obiectivul politiei secrete“ prezinta fotografii facute de politia comunista secreta din Cehoslovacia intre anii 1969 – 1989. Acestea au fost prezentate recent la Budapesta, New York, Moscova si Berlin si au avut un mare succes la public.

Aceste fotografii au fost surprinse de oameni care nu vanau gloria artistica, ci mai degraba erau manati de setea puterii si nevoia de control asupra celorlalti. In ciuda acestui lucru, fotografii reusesc sa ofere cel mai fidel portret al realitatii vietii in Cehoslovacia anilor ’70 si ’80. Mai mult decat atat, fotografiile au o calitate artistica deosebita”, spune directorul Centrului Ceh la Bucuresti, Rene Kubasek.

Programul va incepe la 13.30 cu o discutii panel despre viata sub regimurile totalitare in tarile ex-comuniste si despre cum este tratat trecutul comunist si ce relevanta mai are el astazi. La discutie vor participa fosti dizidenti si experti in domeniu.

Vernisajul expozitiei de fotografie va avea loc la ora 18.00, in prezenta reprezentantilor Institutului Ceh Pentru Studiul Regimurilor Totalitare, care a pregatit aceasta expozitie.

Evenimentul va culmina la ora 19.00 cu proiectia „Pouta“, filmul care a primit in 2010 premiile Academiei cehe de film pentru cel mai bun film, cel mai bun regizor, cel mai bun scenariu, actor in rolul principal si cea mai buna imagine. Filmul prezinta povestea unui agent al politiei comuniste secrete si prezinta relatiile dintre politia secreta si miscarea dizidentilor.

ENGLISH VERSION

Bucharest hosts unique exhibition of pictures that you were never supposed to see

On the occasion of the anniversary of the Velvet revolution in Czechoslovakia, the Czech Centre in Bucharest organises the event „Prague through the Lens of the Secret Police“.

The whole day event, involving panel discussions, exhibition and a film screening, will take place on Thursday, 17th November 2011 at the seat of Romanian Cultural Institute (Aleea Alexandru 38).

The exhibition “Prague through the Lens of Secret Police” presents photographs taken by the Czechoslovak communist secret police between the years 1969 – 1989. The exhibition has recently been presented with big success in Budapest, New York, Moscow or Berlin.

These photos were taken by people who 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, they managed to provide the most faithful portrait of the reality of life in Czechoslovakia in the 1970s and 80s. Furthermore, they captured photos of an unusual artistic quality,” says director of the Czech Centre in Bucharest, René Kubasek.

The programme will start at 13.00 by panel discussions about life under totalitarian regime in the ex-communist countries and about dealing with the communist past and its relevance for today. Participants of the discussion will include former dissidents as well as experts in the field.

The vernisage of the exhibition will take place at 18.00 in the presence of representatives of the Czech Institute for the Study of Totalitarian Regimes.

The event will culminate at 19.00 by screening of “Pouta” (“Walking too fast”),  movie that received 2010 Czech Film Academy award for the best film, the best director, the best script, the best photography and the best actor in leading role. The film tells a story of a communist secret police agent and relations between secret police and dissident movement.

The event is organised by the Czech Centre Bucharest in cooperation with the Czech Institute for the Study of Totalitarian Regimes.

Partners: Romanian Cultural Institute, Hungarian Cultural Institute, FSPUB, Staropramen, Czech Airlines / Media partners: 24 FUN, Hipmag
