Libuše Jarcovjáková: The Black Years
Added: February 12, 2017
Libuše Jarcovjáková, the enfant terrible of Czech photography, is publishing her work in book form for the first time. Černé roky (The Black Years) comprises raw photos and literary diaries from the period 1971–1987. The book distills the black and white ordinariness of normalisation Prague, revealing both the beauty and decay of that period, as well as providing an insight into the remarkable later life of an émigré in West Berlin and Tokyo. The book was presented by documentarian Barbora Baronová while curator Lucia L. Fišerová hosted a talk with the author.
