1989 How did photography reflect the revolutionary year of 1989? This exhibition was organised to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution as part of the project Havel na Hrad! (Havel to the Castle!). Yet 1989 was not merely exceptional for its political developments proper but also for the medium that painstakingly recorded them – the medium of photography. Several exhibitions and publications celebrated 150 years since the official announcement of photography’s discovery. Likely, without photographers suspecting this, it was the final year they would spend working in the institutional framework they had been used to for years. The lives of many changed radically after the Revolution.
