The Academy of Performing Arts in Prague is commemorating its 75th anniversary in the academic year 2020/2021. The coronavirus pandemic has affected the planning of the events intended to illustrate the anniversary and the meaning of AMU to the general public as part of the celebrations. Two major events will take place as planned, however, providing the notional climax of the celebration year. One is an exhibition mapping AMU’s history and the other is the autumn concert in the Rudolfinum.
The goal of the exhibition is to present to the general public the major historical milestones in the life of the Czech Republic’s largest tertiary art school that boasts a high international credit and contributes to the development of (not just) the local art scene. Spanning 15 outdoor panels, the exhibition maps the history of AMU from its inception to the present time in the context of historical developments that had undisputed effects on the existence of the school and often happened directly on academic soil.
