CARTA 77
5-15 octombrie / Institutul Cultural Roman / Aleea Alexandru 38

Proiect al agentiei CHOICE images Personalitatile disidentilor si personajelor principale ale rezistentei impotriva regimului normalizator.
Fotografi: Evzen Sobek, Karel Tuma, grupul Viktor Fischer si Alena Dvorakova, Martin Marencin, Andrej Balco si Rafael Malach.

Fiecare dintre membrii agentiei are anumite amintiri fata de perioada de dinaintea schimbarii regimului din 1989, iar scopul acestui ansamblu de poze este sa ne aducem aminte de curajul omului si caracterul neclintit al multor personalitati ale disidentei.
Inca o data ne amintim de oamenii datorita carora schimbarea regimului din 1989 s-a realizat in mod linistit si astfel a contribuit la schimbari principale spre mai bine in vietile noastre. Prin intermediul fotografiilor noastre am vrea sa amintim si sa apreciem atitudinile disidentilor si semnatarilor Cartei 77, in perioada lunga de ”normalizare”, activitatile lor in lupta pentru drepturile omului si libertatea de exprimare. Vrem sa prezentam si personalitati mai putin cunoscute din randul oamenilor muncii, studentilor si artistilor care de asemenea au semnat Carta 77. Ne intereseaza in ce masura acest pas a influentat viata lor. In ziua de azi, cei mai cunoscuti semnatari reprezinta simboluri vii ale luptei pentru libertate si democratie in tarile noastre. Noi insa vrem sa prezentam si alte personalitati ale disidentei.

ENGLISH VERSION

We intend this series of photographic portraits as an appreciation of the stand taken by dissidents and signatories of Charter 77 during the period of Normalization in the 1970s and 1980s, and a reminder of what they undertook in the battle for human rights.
Many of the signatories still play an active part in public affairs today, and we often respond to them as to symbols of freedom and democracy; others represented in this photographic series are practically unknown, although their demonstrations of dissent in opposition to the communist regime were just as significant.
We see the significance of CHARTER 77 as being about more than its historical role in the reviving of democracy in Czechoslovakia: it is also important for the emphasis placed by its signatories on the ethical values which should underpin human behaviour and on civil courage. These latter are values so often missing in our dealings today.
Karel Tuma, vicepresident CHOICE images
