Double Exposure The Collection of the Prague House of Photography in the Prague City Gallery

The exhibition entitled Double Exposure presents an assortment of photographs from the 557-strong collection of the Prague House of Photography, which was incorporated into the acquisitions of Prague City Gallery in autumn 2010 by way of donation. This array of original photographs, largely comprised of blown-up brome silver paper prints, offers a cross-section of the 20th-century output of predominantly Czech photographers, with special focus on the 1980s and 90s, with several exceptions dating from the first years of the present century.

The show does not follow any strictly defined thematic lines, nor is it centered around a single compact generic core. Rather, it puts on display a select sample of work of several individual photographers, setting in relief chronological parallels in their various creative approaches. On view here are works by leading solitary figures, such as Pavel Baňka, Vladimír Birgus, Michaela Brachtlová, Dagmar Hochová, Karel Cudlín, Eva Fuka, Viktor Kolář, Jan Ságl, Jindřich Štreit, Petr Zhoř, and others.
