Galerie Josefa Sudka / Josef Sudek Gallery
The Josef Sudek Gallery is situated in PragueÂ´s HradÄŤany district in a house where Josef Sudek (b. 1896 KolĂn n. L. â€” 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 1978â€”1988. Since 1989 the UPM has also been administering the artistâ€™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 ZrzavĂ˝, 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.
