The Story of the Háj

23 03 - 04 06 2023
Museum of Modern Art: Gallery

A new publication by Pavel Zatloukal, What Buildings Tell, was published in 2022. Power plant and villa in Háj near Mohelnice. A detailed study of the architectural and landscape complex gives the impetus to build the story of the exceptional architecture and its builder also in the form of an exhibition.  A small history with vivid links to the big ones will bring a remarkable probe into the 1920s, when a complex with a hydroelectric power station and a villa of the Plhák family was built in the settlement of Háj u Mohelnice (Třeštiny). The early work of the prominent modernist architects Bohuslav Fuchs and Josef Štěpánek, but also the fascinating fate of the family of Ellen and Karel Plháková will be brought to life by authentic contemporary materials of high artistic value - from architectural plans and photographs to furniture to the free photographic work of the protagonists of this story.
