František Tröster - poet of light and space

In Prague from May 16th to September 2nd, 2007

Exhibition was presented at the Municipal House in co-operation with the National Museum, Theatre Institute and the Society of František Tröster. This exhibition was one of the main parts of Prague Quadrennial (June 14th to 24th, 2007).


Exhibition purpose

Idea to organise a comprehensive exhibition of artist's works started in 2004, when we celebrated 100th birth anniversary of professor, architect František Tröster. Our efforts to organise comprehensive exhibition at that time were unsuccessful, however we successfully organised a Symposium symposium for this occasion ( here for more information). Symposium was dedicated not only to scenografic activities of the artist, but also to areas of exhibition design, architectural production and his pedagogical activities at DAMU. Symposium revealed, that some parts of artist's activities were hitherto little known and in need of better introduction as part of artist's comprehensive work. Exhibition wants to present to community the personality of a world-known scenic artist, professor architect František Tröster and his works in full scope.


Exhibition theme

Exhibition wants to present these activities of František Tröster:

  • scenography
  • architecture
  • exhibition design
  • free production
