The New Slovakia
(the Difficult) Birth of The New Lifestyle (1918 – 1949)

30. June 2011 — 15. January 2012
Esterházyho palác, 1. a 2. poschodie, Bratislava
Curators: Katarína Bajcurová, Petra Hanáková, Aurel Hrabušický

The exhibition shows the penetration of modern civilization into Slovak society from 1918 to 1948/49. The picture of modernizing Slovakia as captured by visual arts, architecture and design is the key theme.

Modern life was only a marginal theme within the framework of the Slovak art of this period. The expressions of modern life in a country practically devoid of industry, with a prevailing rural population, were manifested gradually, slowly and frequently in a contradictory context. Classical gallery material is supplemented by film projections at five locations throughout the gallery, which are loosely connected to the individual chapters of the exhibition.
The exhibition approaches the theme from several perspectives.

The Exhibition was supported by Enel Company.
