The Fabulous Baron Munchausen

In this unique treatment of the famous book by Gottfried August Bürger, Zeman was inspired by engravings used in the original edition from the hand of one of the most important illustrators of the 19th century, Gustave Doré. Filming the action in black and white, the director then used heavy tinting and different colors as symbols of the changing moods and surprising plot twists of the story. This fantastical adventure - interspersed with unique effects and funny gags - won many international prizes, among other festivals in Cannes and Locarno.

Radek Brousil: Red Naomi

The exhibition is an investigation into the representation of African heritage within Glasgow’s history. Focusing particularly around the Botanic Gardens, Brousil will be showing new work responding to previous projects and interests, most recently the commission and major installation BLACK AND WHITE PHOTOGRAPHY which was shown at Prague City Gallery in 2016. This exhibition focused on ethnological issues, the history of African art, and anthropology. It also offered a critique of the presentation of African art in the Czech Republic, where collections are hidden away in museum storage.”
