Lecture: Josef Pleskot and Norbert Schmidt (CZE) - CROSSES BY ARTISTS AND ARCHITECTS OF THE 20th
AND 21st CENTURIES
,
Friday 19/ 7/ 16:00–17:00
How some of leading Czech and global artists have perceived the theme of the cross. Norbert Schmidt, an architect and the head of the Theology and Arts Centre at the Charles University will show how deeply inspiring, yet diverse is the concept of the cross by such diverse artists as Henri Matisse, Joseph Beuys, Arnulf Rainer, Eduardo Chillida and others.

The architect Josef Pleskot will be another speaker on the cross theme. The discussions will include the installation of “Something Not Completed…” in Litomyšl, the procession cross for the Church of the Sacred Heart in Prague‘s Vinohrady, and the cross recently installed in the staircase space above the new gate of the Dominican Monastery in Prague‘s Old Town, among others.
