Absurdistan – years of non-freedom
October 20, 2011
Vaclav Havel Library invites you to the opening of an exhibition of photographs made by Luboš Kotka: Absurdistan – years of non-freedom. The set of photographs depict the everydayness of normalisation revealing many absurd, unintentionally comic situations and scenes, hidden behind the gray surface of Husák’s time.

Diary entry for 10 July 2005, To the Castle and Back
„I’ve run away. I’ve run away to Hrádeček. I’m here alone and I feel uneasy. Everything reminds me of the decades I’ve been through in this place. I like it here. It’s my refuge, my existential home, but again and again I realize there’s no going back, and that by now I’m not the same person I was when I wrote my plays, prepared my experimental meals, threw light-hearted parties, and organised secret dissident meetings. I’m older, sicker, wearier.“
