Course contents

The exhibition and communications project Communication '89 or State Coup without the Internet organized by the Silence Memorial of the Bubny Train Station from 11.10 to 30.11.2019 is a call for fortifying media education. It will show how the coup d'état in time without internet and social networks was communicated. The Exposition moves from Samizdat to the fall of censorship in television broadcast from Letna Park on the 25th of November, 1989. A rich accompanying program debates how we used the chance for cultivating public communications in the free world. The exhibitory symbol of the fragility of memory have been unknown photos from the archives of Jaroslava Krejčí, whose negatives observed the flood of the magic of the undesired.

Director Pavel Štingl and his team are preparing for the anniversary of the 17th of November, 1989 with a number of events which are to initiate public discussion about how we have used the chance at freedon in the last 30 years.
