Exhibitions - May 2013

The National Library of the CR will be closed on Wednesday, May 1 and May 8, 2013. 

In Search of Lost Place
April 25 – June 22, 2013

Invitation - Photogallery

The exhibition, organised by the National Library of the CR and the Pedagogical Faculty, University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice, is the result of the international workshop held in Bohemia. It presents the selection of author books created during the workshop. Through visual, graphic and text processing of author books by traditional and experimental techniques, it provides testimony about personal feelings in a tangle of technical and information chaos with the uncertain status of an individual in the contemporary world.
Exhibited are, for example, works of authors from Bohemia, Poland, Slovakia and France.  

Exhibition corridor, groundfloor, Monday to Saturday: 9 am – 7 pm

The heritage of Saints Cyril and Methodius
May 20 – July 19, 2013

The exhibition maps reviving the tradition of Saints Cyril and Methodius in Bohemia and especially in Moravia from the 2nd. half of the 19th century, which is connected with the jubilee anniversary of the arrival of Saints Cyril and Methodius to Great Moravia and the issue of Grande Munus encyclical by Pope Leo III. It documents  the heyday of this tradition in Central, Eastern, and Southeastern Europe in the 1st half of the 20th century, its decline after World War II due to the seizure of power by Bolshevik regimes in the Slavic countries and an attempt for its reviving in the late 1980s. The exposition presents monographs and periodicals focused on the theme of Saints Cyril and Methodius from the collections of the Slavonic Library.
