The Charta Story exhibition commemorates the 40th anniversary of the establishment of Charter 77, an informal civic initiative criticizing violations of human and civic rights. The story of Ivan Jirous, a poet, art critic and representative of Czech underground culture, which is documented in photographs, written materials and personal belongings, reveals the life stories of people from various social circles who were linked by their affinity to the spirit of Charter 77 and were its signatories. The exhibition also presents a historical assessment by Petr Blažek and Veronika Tucker. While the Charta Story is a documented account emphasizing creativity, the display of Charter 77 in Photographs captures the atmosphere at the time. This part of the exhibition presents photographs by Jiří Bednář, Jaroslav Brabec, Michael Dus, Bohdan Holomíček, Jan Kašpar, Jaroslav Kukal, Ivan Kyncl, Ondřej Němec, Viktor Stoilov, Oldřich Škácha and other photographers capturing events in the unofficial culture.
