THE STATE OF THE ARMLESS RAPHAELS

24 unique photos in large format by famous Czech photographers such as František Drtikol, Josef Sudek og Josef Koudelka

These photographs were created within hundredths of seconds  over the course of a century in a country in the middle of Europe, which boasts a great photographic tradition. It is  often emphasised that the Czech environment has repeatedly formed an artistic movement which has brought something quite authentic and unique to the world of art. It was undoubtedly the Gothic art under the emperors and Czech kings Charles IV and Wenceslaus IV, the radical Baroque style personified by the architects Christoph Dientzenhofer, his son Kilian Ignaz Dientzenhofer and Jan Blažej Santini, as well as modernism, including the typically Czech Cubo-Expressionism. In recent years, it is the Czech photographic avant-garde and associated authors who have attracted a considerable amount of attention abroad.

It was primarily photography which responded immediately to the latest developments elsewhere in the world and often promoted them in the Czech environment. Czech authors such as František Drtikol, Josef Sudek, Jaromír Funke or Josef Koudelka are already well-known in the world, while others are still waiting to be appreciated. We believe that many of them certainly deserve it.

The Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague was established by the Chamber of Commerce and Trade in Prague in 1885. The museum‘s photography collection dates back to 1902, when the first exhibit was acquired. Since 1922, it has been systematically expanded and updated, although the social conditions of the time often did not permit it. Today it contains more than 100,000 collection items, including extensive collections of the classic Czech photographers such as František Drtikol, Josef Sudek and Josef Koudelka. 

The exhibition presents the story of Czech photography while it showcases the holdings of this collection.

The exhibition is presented in collaboration with the Czech embassy and consulate in Denmark.
