Exhibition: Havel in a Nutshell, 2009-
The Václav Havel Library’s permanent exhibition, “Havel in a Nutshell”, located on the ground floor of the library on Ostrovní street in Prague, introduces visitors to the life of Václav Havel through a collage of photographs and quotations. The exhibition also uses touchscreens that provide more detailed information and sound recordings. The exhibition focuses on the main chapters of Havel’s life: family, theatre, dissident life and presidency, which are presented in a broad cultural-historical context. Part of the exhibition is also a large interactive map of Václav Havel’s global “footsteps”. The exhibition, originally entitled “Václav Havel - the Czech Myth, or Havel in a Nutshell”, was first opened in April 2009 at the Montmartre Gallery in Prague’s Old Town, the former location of the Václav Havel Library. It expanded from the temporary exhibition “Václav Havel - the Czech Myth”, which had been exhibited at Hergetova cihelna in Prague from December 2007.
