LECTURE BY VOJTĚCH LAHODA

SEPTEMBER 21, 7:30 PM

at the CZECH CENTER NEW YORK

 

 

Vojtěch Lahoda’s lecture will focus on Josef

Sudek’s photography during the period when

he worked for Družstevní práce (DP),

1926 –1936. DP was a publishing house and

book club in Prague that was established

in 1922 as a cooperative of 300 members

and quickly grew within a decade to over

11,000 members. St. Vitus, Josef Sudek’s first

portfolio of photographs, was published by

DP in 1928. Mr. Lahoda will discuss Sudek’s

photography for DP as well as his photography

for St. Vitus, setting them into the framework

of contemporary Czech modernism,

particularly cubism and surrealism.
