Trojan Element / Antonín Kratochvíl and his students

10 April to 30 April 2016, Vernissage 9 April 2016 at 5pm

The exhibition consists of seven large-format prints from the world famous Antonín Kratochvíl, winner of four prestigious World Press Photo awards and also presents 28 photographs by his students. For the "Trojan Element" project, Antonín Kratochvíl exhibits photographs of real agents from the CIA, KGB and other secret services that he actually took pictures of during his career. He created a substantial part of this series as part of his project "Broken Dreams" which dealt with conditions in the post-Soviet era Eastern Europe. Students of the Institute of Photographic Studies in Brno created a simulation of the shooting of a film based on a given topic, focused on the theme of the secret services and spies from the filmed novels of Ian Fleming, the classic Bond stories.
