Due to great interest among the professional and lay public, the Study and Documentation Centre at Villa Tugendhat prepared an exhibition about Villa Tugendhat, which presents the history of this unique work of classical architectural modernism.
The concept of the exhibition was first presented in the accompanying programme of an international conference, Mies Here and There, held in Chicago in January 2012 (21 January to 28 February 2012) (read more). It was subsequently repeated with great success and acclaim at the RIBA Royal Institute of British Architects in London (3 July to 31 August 2012) and in expanded form also in the Bohemian National Hall on Manhattan (1 to 31 October 2012) (read more).
The mobile format offered by the Brno City Museum to foreign institutions since June 2013 is available in English version (in German and Czech version from February 2014).
The exhibition consists of 14 comprehensive topics. The history of the villa from its inception to the present day is summarized on large-format panels with archival and contemporary photographs and accompanying text. The exhibition concept was designed by the Villa Tugendhat Study and Documentation Centre in Brno in cooperation with Atelier Zidlicky graphics studio. The exhibition is complemented by an illuminated 1:50 model of the building.
A lecture and / or a film screening of a docudrama "The Fate of Tugendhat" produced by Czech Television can be arranged as accompanying programme, on prior agreement (read more).
The exhibition was first shown in its final form in the Urbanism Institute at Hogeschool Utrecht, Netherlands, (1 to 20 September 2013) and then it has moved to the Czech Centre in Rotterdam (30 September to 22 October 2013) and later will be presented at the Department of Architecture of the Technical University in Eindhoven.
