Esterházyho palác, Bratislava

The exhibition and publication project focuses on documentary photography and photojournalism, presented on a limited scale at the major shows held at the Slovak National Gallery (Slovak Photography 1925-2000, Slovak Visual Arts 1970-1985).

Documentary photography provides a visually attractive and relatively complex visual information about social life in Slovakia between 1969 and 1989, the beginning of the so-called normalisation and post-November events in 1989. The exhibition and the accompanying book centred on the documentation of life and the environment of various social groups and communities, providing they were an object of interest of photographers active in Slovakia in those times. The show will present themes such as public and private rituals, sociological portrait, man from Below the platform, building panel normalization, pictures of the old world, quite good fellows and many others.
