From May 25th to July 28th
“The Form of Ideology. Prague: 1948-1989”, is the title of an exhibition dedicated to Czechoslovak art, open until 28 July at the Palace of the Governor of Parma, in the Representative Hall of the Municipality. More than 200 works including paintings, drawings, graphic and printing works, photographs and design objects tell the cultural context of the country from the post-war period to the fall of the Berlin wall, and how regime ideology influenced artistic production, starting from the realist painting of artists such as Štolovský, Brož, Žábranský, Schoř, Ballardini and Čermáková. The exhibition, promoted by the Municipality of Parma, the Eleutheria Foundation and the Ferrarini-Nicoli Collection, benefits from the patronage of the Czech Embassy in Rome, the Italian Embassy in Prague and various other institutions.
