Moments of History

The corridor functions as a time machine. We enter this 56-metre-long panorama of two continuous projections and travel through an accelerated flow of history starting from the Big Bang all the way to the Wenceslas Square today.

.Anatomy of Space is a film that shows the location of significant historical moments, the axis mundi of our nation´s modern history, Wenceslas square and its architectural transformations throughout the centuries. The flow of time slows down in Anatomy of Events, we see crowds but also the individual and how they live. 

Both films show the important events of the 20th century, they allow the visitor to judge and compare the events and form their own opinion. Each film is displayed as a stand-alone installation but they come out better when seen in together. 

The prologue of Anatomy of Space puts the film directly into themes explored in the natural history museum, it depicts fascinating scenes from the history of the site. Children in particular can watch with awe the creation of the universe, the wonders of the Ordovician Sea and the dawn of humankind.

The prologue is followed by a time-lapse documentary that captures the period from 1860  to 2019.

Anatomy of Events is a collection of fascinating footage from 1918 – 2019.

All three parts complement each other and together they make a whole – an endless loop that captures the diversity of human actions and emotions against the background of the urban transformations of Wenceslas Square.
