About the exhibition

In recent years there has been a wave of scandals in our media. It is often only with difficulty that we are able to orient ourselves within the mass of information. We require, and the media willingly presents, a summary of the problem. We want to know in brief who is the villain and who is the victim, who we are to despise, with whom we are to sympathise and who we are to pity.

The media thus not only informs us but also compiles and creates our image of the world. And it has done so also in the past.

The exhibition guides you through a period from the end of the 19th century, when this country was still a part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, through the democratic First Republic of Czechoslovakia up to the time after the Velvet Revolution of November 1989. It presents not only historical scandals, but above all how the media image of personalities and events from public life has been created in various periods in history.

At the exhibition you can see not only a number of newspaper reports and written materials, audio and video recordings and exhibits documenting the lifestyle of the individual periods, but also items which have served certain famous, popular and also unpopular personalities.
