The History of the Brave Czech Nation

EXHIBITION AND COMPETITION, 12 MARCH 2012 - 11 AUGUST 2012, WHITE LION CENTRE, CITY OF LONDON ACADEMY AND ELSEWHERE IN ISLINGTON. The award winning and bestselling comic book by Czech artist Lucie Seifertova, telling the story of Czech history and its legends, recreated as wallpaper murals, will be on display at selected schools and community centres.

Various periods of Czech history, highlighting everyday life, culture, myths and legends are accompanied by cartoon-style texts and characters. They provide a unique insight into Czech politics, art, architecture and science, while at the same time relating British history to that of Europe. Children will be invited to submit their own pictorial take on historical events and dozens of books of these and similar stories by Seifertova will be donated to schools and libraries across Islington.
