Josef Koudelka (b. 1938) is one of those few outstanding photographers whose images decisively influenced the developments of the history of photography in the second half of the 20th century through their intense, moving and authentic look. The next year, his coverage of the invasion of Prague by Russian tanks in 1968 was awarded the 1969 Robert Capa Gold Medal under the name of “anonymous Prague photographer”. The exhibition presents three significant stages of his work and includes approximately 120 photographs and projections, and ranges from the Soviet occupation of his homeland in 1968 to his time in exile and the large‑scale photographic project about the wall built by Israel in the West Bank.
