After successful foreign exhibitions (2014 – Tim Burton and his world, 2016 – Evolution: David Cronenberg, 2019 – Pixar – 30 years of animation) Art Movement chose a purely Czech exhibition, which we believe deserves a comprehensive performance in the capital city.

The exhibition on Czech animated film from 1945 to 2020, maps and presents 75 years of the best of Czech animated works. in order to introduce a somewhat neglected “family silver” especially to the younger generation. In order to create an attractive concpet, we invited the leading Czech animators and filmmakers (e.g. Mária Procházková, Prof. Jiří Kubíček, Jan Bubeníček, etc.).

Jiří Trnka, Karel Zeman, Hermína Týrlová, Břetislav Pojar, Jiří Barta, Jan Švankmajer and Jiří Brdečka – these are just a short sample of the most famous authors that you will see at the exhibition. We will present various animation techniques, samples from films, series as well as shorts and student´s  films. The architectural concept combines author´s pieces with interactive elements and educational workshops so that it is as attractive as possible for the audience. The target group of our exhibition – primary and secondary school students, families with children, and everyone who cares about Czech animation.

The exhibition is held under the auspices of the:

Councilor of the Capital City of Prague  Mrs. Hana Třeštíková 

Minister of culture of the Czech Republic Mr. Lubomír Zaorálek
