Exhibition tour by the curators Ann Thomas and Vladimir Birgus

18h00 to 19h00
Jeu de Paume, Paris

Jeu de Paume invites you to a tour of “Josef Sudek. The World at My Window” with Ann Thomas and Vladimir Birgus, curators of the exhibition.

This exhibition is the first of this scale to revisit the life and work of Josef Sudek (Kolin, 1896 – Prague, 1976) within its sociogeographical and historical context: Prague during the first half of the twentieth century, at a time when the Czech capital was a veritable hub of artistic activity.
The exhibition features a selection of 130 works spanning the totality of Sudek’s career, from 1920 to 1976, and allows the public to examine the extent to which his photography was a reflection of his personal relationship to the surrounding world. On display are works that are the result of Sudek’s photographic experiments carried out within the privacy of his own studio, images of the garden seen from his window, and photographs of adventures further afield. The artist enjoyed meandering through the streets of Prague and its surrounding suburbs, and made frequent excursions to the nearby countryside.

Tour of the exhibition Tuesday 7 June, 6pm. Free admission on presentation of the exhibition ticket of the day.
