Although we now live in a free country we are aware that freedom is a constant struggle, and that one must strive for it again and again on many different levels, in our relations to society, to other people, and to ourselves. This is why freedom, as a more or less perceptible yet constant thread in the work of Jan, is the theme of this exhibition organised on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution. Even though was one of the photographers who actively documented the events after November 1989, the exhibition focuses above all on a selection of works completed earlier, during the communist rule in Czechoslovakia. Across ten cycles of photographs, often dealing with highly personal themes, viewers will be able to gradually explore the various aspects of the search for freedom (be it civil liberty or personal, inner freedom), of the sense of threat or loss to that freedom, and of points of contact with the free world.
