Regarding the many requests for the guided tours of the Ester Krumbachová exhibition, we decided to add a lecture tour led by Romana Horáková on Tuesday, March 1, from 5 pm.
The monographic exhibition presents the as yet unpublished complete estate of Ester Krumbachová, a remarkable film director, screenwriter, novelist, artist and designer of film and theatre costumes. As a visual artist Krumbachová collaborated on a number of outstanding films of the Czech new wave (Diamonds of the Night, Daisies, Valerie and Her Week of Wonders, The Ear, etc.). In 1970 she made her only self-scripted film, Murdering the Devil. After 1972 she was banned from working on feature films and TV programmes. The prohibition for her to enter the Barrandov Studios was temporarily broken in 1983 when she worked together with Věra Chytilová on the film The Very Late Afternoon of a Faun. After 1990 she was able to return to film, her last work being Marian (1996), where she was responsible for the dramaturgy, set and costume design.
The exhibition will display the expansive web of original material, photographs and film excerpts to which Ester Krumbachová contributed. The artefacts will be complemented by performances, curated screenings and interventions by contemporary artists who have been inspired by Ester Krumbachová’s work.
