Galerie Josefa Sudka / Josef Sudek Gallery

The Josef Sudek Gallery is situated in Prague´s Hradčany district in a house where Josef Sudek (b. 1896 Kolín n. L. — d. 1976 Prague) lived from 1959 until his death. A part of his photographic output was transferred to the UPM in Prague in the years 1978—1988. Since 1989 the UPM has also been administering the artist’s flat where the gallery opened in 1995.

Sudek's flat was a popular place for friendly gatherings of many artists, among them the poet Jaroslav Seifert, painter Jan Zrzavý, architect Otto Rothmayer and many others. In the flat, which was gradually filled with numerous paintings, frames, goblets, boxes and photographic equipment, originated many of the now renowned compositions in the series Aviatic Remembrances, Easter Remembrances, Labyrinths and Glass Labyrinths. This flat was also a departure point from which Sudek used to set off to roam the Prague gardens, parks and his beloved city outskirts.

Ota Hájek: Photographs
October 20th, 2011 -January 24th, 2012

In the 1980s, Hostinné — a town in the Krkonoše foothills — became an important venue for many Czech artists. The photographer Ota Hájek (1932 Pardubice—1996 Hostinné) was one of the organizers of local cultural events. He started as a photographer in the 1950s, when he befriended Jiří Toman. In later years in Hostinné, he continued his documentary work in collaboration with visiting artists to the Ancient Art Gallery. Frequently remembered is his friendship with Adriena Šimotová, as well as with architect Alena Šrámková, sculptor Jiří Seifert, photographer Bohdan Holomíček and the interpreter of Hájek’s oeuvre, Jaromír Zemina. Besides photography and the fine arts, Ota Hájek had a lifelong passion for jazz music.
