Lesser Bank personalities in the camera’s eye

Three photographers Ivan Luttterer, Jan Malý and Jiří Poláček, and their colleagues Bohdan Holomíček, Antonín Malý, Zdeněk Merta, and Stanislav Tůma, are the main actors in the seventh consecutive common exhibition of a loose cycle thematically focused on the Lesser Bank and Hradčany – Malostranské portréty (Lesser Bank Portraits), which is installed for the summer in Obecní galerie Beseda. For the second year, this very successful exhibition is called Malostranský portrét, and before that it was called Lesser Bank Corners, The Lesser Bank Today, and Lesser Bank Figures. As opposed to the “figures”, this time the exhibition presents well-known Lesser Bank personalities of the past and present – such as Václav Havel, the first time he was elected president. The installation of the entire cycle, in which more than 30 photographers have been involved over the last six years, was organized by Stanislav Tůma.

Malostranské portréty, Obecní galerie Beseda, Malostranská Beseda, till September 8, opened Tue – Sun from 13.00 to 18.00, admission fee voluntary
