Václav Havel - Tomki Němec, Photographs.

24. 11. 2016 from 17:00 to 20:00

Tomki Němec is publishing a book featuring familiar and iconic images of Václav Havel as well as yet unpublished ones. Some can also be found in the HAVEL exhibition currently on at DOX until 13 February 2017.

On Thursday, 24 November at 5:00 p.m., Václav Havel - Tomki Němec, Photographs. will be presented at DOX with the participation of the author, who will be signing copies for those interested from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. At 7:00 p.m. there will be a short tour of the HAVEL exhibition guided by the author (in Czech language).

Václav Havel’s photographer Tomki Němec has this to say regarding the book: “I went through my archive after many years had passed and selected familiar as well as newly-discovered photos. A quarter-century later it seems unbelievable that I had the luck to live and photograph during such an amazing time, a time of hope and positive energy. I lived a good part of my life with an exceptional person, Václav Havel. The book is a testament to that time; it’s about him and about me, about all of us. I’ll be glad if it makes you happy.”

Due to the great degree of interest in the book, whose quantity is now limited, only 200 books in Czech and 100 books in English will be available for purchase during the launch. The price of the book is 1989 CZK.

More information on the creation of the book, its scope and parameters is available at www.havelbook.com.

Admission to the event is free of charge.
