Josef Sudek: Topography of Ruins @ House of Photography

22. 05 2018 - 19. 08 2018

The exhibition presents a nearly unknown and as yet unexhibited set of photographs by Josef Sudek (1896–1976), who in 1945 photographed Prague’s monuments damaged during the Second World War, in particular during the air raid of 14 February 1945 and the Prague Uprising. The photographs show the changes wrought on the urban landscape by the war, and also depict various wartime protective measures. Among other things, the nearly 400 surviving negatives show Emmaus Monastery, Old Town Hall, Old Town Square and the surrounding area, and the scrapyard at Maniny where various metal sculptures and bells were stored.
