Pražákuv Palac (Brno)
Vladimir Boudnik was a graphic artist, photographer and a key figure in Czech post-war art, and a representative of the “explosionism” movement. Vladimir Boudnik has never had a ‘good’ show. Mostly he exhibited his works in the factory where he worked, where the audience were his co-workers. Pražákuv Palace in Brno will present one of the last exhibitions of this inventor of the movement in April.
If you are interested in the history of Bohemia, then visit the Imperial Stables of Prague Castle. Here you can see an annual exhibition to celebrate a hundred years of the Czech crown running up until 28th April. From the commemorative coins issued specifically for this occasion, the historical ones will be visible, as well as special coins, which will be included in circulation among “ordinary” people, and many other accompanying materials.
