Explore the gallery in the evening with a glass of wine and through discussions. The program is dedicated to English speakers who live in
Bratislava and would like to know more about Slovak visual art. These sessions are to introduce the permanent collections and current exhibitions and will usually be followed by informal discussions. Each meeting should last approximately one hour.

Robert Capa, War Reporter of the 20th Century with Lucia Almášiová, curator of photography, SNG “If your pictures aren’t good enough, you aren’t close enough.” A typical feature of Robert Capa’s photography is his fascination with man on the edge of life and death, immediateness or even intimacy of his shots, strong visual impact and deep human involvement.

Thanks to these characteristics, he is to this day regarded as one of the most significant wartime reporters. Lucia Almášiová, the curator of SNG’s photography collection, will share with you the touching path trough five war conflicts, seen and authentically recorded by Capa’s courageous and talented personality, which brought him to the spotlight of international photo-journalism.

  1. Shame the exhibition is not touring the country. Capa’s work is outstanding and I would love to see it.

  2. Can’t go to this, what with it being on a Thursday and me not living in Ba, but recommend it to anyone who can make it. The exhibition is magnificent.
