Power and Ritual
16. 4. — 31. 5. 2004
The Supreme Burgrave´s House of Prague Castle
Gallery Bernd Arnold
The exhibition presents the German photographer Bernd Arnold. His collection of photographs captures the most diverse ceremonies and rituals: religious, profane, political and nonsensical. The Catholic church is seen as a system of salvation, politicians as purveyors of rhetoric and the media as a tool to manipulate consumers. There are amusement parks, pimps and prostitutes. . . The exhibition shows an undistorted reflection of the exploitation human vulnerability.
