Zdeněk Burian – To the End of the World

Museum Kampa and Retro Gallery present over forty paintings by the eminent Czech painter and illustrator, Zdeněk Burian (1905—1981). This will mark the first time that many of these works are being publicly displayed.

The exhibition’s title, To the End of the World, brings the three thematic groups together. In his works, Zdeněk Burian encompasses the whole world — be it through the covers of books for adventure stories, the dramatic landscapes from the Wide World or the faces of indigenous people. He will take you to the mighty Amazon River, American skyscrapers, scorched deserts, swollen rivers and roaring waterfalls. And maybe even to the end of the world.

The Villa Müller

The villa for Milada and František Müller in Prague (1928-30) is the chef-d’oeuvre of the international architectural avant-garde. It as an example of the rare concord between an enlightened client and a brilliant architect. František Müller, co-owner of the Kapsa-Müller construction company, was one of the leading lights of Czech society of his day.

He had no hesitation in commissioning one of the greatest architects of the time to design his own, representative home – Adolf Loos, who had already been active in Bohemia.

The villa, opened as National Cultural Monument is open on by prior reservation, only on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.

The Masters of Rudolf II’s Era

Enlightened private collectors emerged and were instrumental in the return of some artworks from abroad. In addition, collectors purchased more at auctions in the Czech Republic from Czech households which often had no clue about the real treasures that had embellished their walls.

Cruel destiny awaited the famous collection of Rudolph II which was one of the largest ever assembled. As soon as the emperor perished, his brother and successor Matthias took the majority of the collections to Vienna and the rest passed to his younger brothers. Others with access to the castle area also took numerous items. Swedish soldiers finished the destruction when they took the rest to Stockholm to please Queen Christina.

Collegium 1704 – Bach: Magnificat

The first performance of a work which has for centuries lain in some dusty archive is always a cause for great celebration. And when we are dealing with a major composer whose known works have already been researched in detail, such an event arouses expectations many times greater. We shall offer the public Zelenka’s festive Missa Divi Xaverii in counterpoint to Bach’s festive Magnificat. December 15 – 16, 2014

Open the gates of paradise

The purpose of this exhibition project is to introduce to scholars and general audiences the spiritual wealth and material culture of the Benedictine monasteries of the Early and High Middle Ages in Central Europe. The project is also intended to highlight the role of the Order of Saint Benedict in facilitating the acceptance of Christianity by the Central European nations, the adoption of Ancient Christian Mediterranean culture, and the process of the emergence and strengthening of states and statehood in Central Europe.

The exhibition will be structured into sections that will evoke the ideal layout of a Benedictine monastery, as we know it from the famed typological Plan of St. Gall.
