Indra Svatek – Behind the Curtain

The photography exhibition “Behind the Curtain” by Jindrich Svatek presents a part of his works created between 1983 and 1991. Capturing the Prague Jewish community, during the totalitarian regime, when all religious communities were under the scrutiny of the State security.

The photographs were limited to events when, according to Jewish religious law were allowed. The photographs capture occasions such as weddings, funerals, Hanukka, and Purim parties or services on weekdays or Sundays.

The result is a remarkable historical document and a collection of artistically high-quality photographs.

We appreciate the support of the Jewish community of Prague and Druckvo, splo. S.r.o that make this exhibition possible.

The exhibition is open till 29.5.2024 at Jeruzalémská Synagogue – Jeruzalémská 1310/7, Prague 1

Every day from 10 am to 5 pm, except Saturdays and Jewish Holidays.
