manifestos / critical texts / documents
(published by ACADEMIA publishing house in co-operation with AVU)
The anthology contains basic manifestos and theoretical texts that deal with major art movements, art groups, significant exhibitions and other events related to Czech art during the years 1938-1989, and is supplemented by numerous cultural-political documents, speeches and texts on Czech historical events during a period full of major developments. Each of the five chronologically compiled chapters is introduced by a short critical text from the editors including the given period in a historical context. The anthology also includes a selective chronology of cultural, political and artistic events during the period of 1938-1989.
The book is a useful aid for art historians and theoreticians, artists and journalists as well as others interested in Czech post-war art. A grant from the Czech Ministry of Education and Ministry of Culture supported the book's publishing.
Czech Art 1938-1989 is priced at CZK 295,- in all Academia bookstores.
