Vaclav Havel: Politics and Conscience
An exhibition of twenty-six panels with statements by late former president Vaclav Havel, complemented by photographs related both to Havel and contemporary events, underline the continuing influence of Havel's ideas.
"Vaclav Havel is usually referred to as a global celebrity...This exhibition, however, focuses on his ideas in terms of the challenges they pose for the present time," said Jan Hron of the Institute for the Study of Totalitarian Regimes (USTR) who prepared the exhibition. Havel’s statements from various texts relate to freedom and its absence, and include his call for citizens to unveil the shortcomings of the present world.
