Tendencies in fine art photography of the 1960s in Czech photography – DOFO Group; Studio of photography Liberec; surrealism, structuralism, concretism and optical art. One of the first post-war photographic groups in Czechoslovakia was the DOFO Olomouc Photographers Group (1958-75). The group applied numerous pre-Second World War Bauhaus experimental techniques, and the photographs reflected the subjective feelings of the creators as expressive, structural and often hallucinatory images. The impact of the group’s creations – with their gravity, relevance, and quality – went beyond national borders and contributed to the wider European art scene. The actual exhibition also presents some important predecessors and companions of this group.
Emila Medkova, Vilem Reichman, Ladislav Postupa, Antonín Gribovský, Jan Hajn, Rupert Kytka, Jaromír Kohoutek, Ivo Preček and others.
