Where Have All the Flowers Gone? Exhibition

by Larissa Petryca, on 27 May 2022 10:30:43 CEST

Second year students from BA (Hons) Fine Art Experimental Media collaborated with cultural association Krajinou přílivu, to curate and organise an exhibition entitled ‘Where Have All the Flowers Gone’, which opened on June 2 at the Libeň Synagogue in Prague 8.

About the Exhibition

With the support of Prague City Hall, Prague 8 Council and the Czech Ministry of Culture, ‘Where Have All the Flowers Gone’ featured artworks from School of Art and Design students that explored recovery and revival following a period of decline and hardship.\

Recovery and revival is also the story of the beautiful Libeň Synagogue which dominates the busy crossroads in Palmovka, bearing testimony to the historical developments that the quarter has undergone. Periods of material and spiritual decay were inherent to these developments, in which the synagogue survived so that its space could become a place of lively gatherings once again.

The presented artworks make the natural and social cycle visible, as does the famous song ‘Where Have All the Flowers Gone’, an international anthem for anti-war movements.

The exhibiting artists were Asûde Alkaya, Gauhar Ametova, Irina Antonez, Rebeka Csombordi, Daryna Shliakhtova, Daniel Tebano and Emma Valisova von Sanger. There was also an outstanding performance from Eglė Šimėnaitė, to open the exhibition.

Professional Practice

This exhibition is part of the BA (Hons) Fine Art Experimental Media programme. In their second year, students undertake two modules on Curating Exhibitions which culminates in a public exhibition. They work together to create an event and develop a public show of their work helping build their professional and practical skills and learn to approach and collaborate with external organisations, venues and art professionals.
