“Under burning sun of Africa:” Tunisia hundred years ago in photographic tales of Czechoslovak travellers

A well preserved photographic material of 78 photographs, witnesses of the passage of Czechoslovakia and Czechs in North Africa and especially in Tunisia, forms the exhibition “Under the burning sun of Africa” organised on May 12-August 12 at the Bardo National Museum.

The exhibition was officially opened on Friday in the presence of Ambassador of the Czech Republic to Tunisia Jiri Dolezel, Bardo Museum Director-General Fatma NaA�t Yghil and Museum of Prague Director General Michal Lukes.

Supported by the Embassy of the Czech Republic, this exhibition, Dolezel said, is a photographic journey through history in Tunisia from 1918 to 1938 and an opportunity for Tunisians to see Tunisia under the lens of Czechoslovak and then Czech travellers a hundred years ago.

He pointed out that the the exhibition is held on the occasion of the 100 years anniversary of the birth of the democratic Republic, voicing wish that relations binding the two countries in the cultural sector will be further fostered, through in particular the organisation at the Prague Museum of an exhibition bearing the colours of Tunisia.

Taking the floor, the Director-General of the Prague Museum stressed that this exhibition is the 1st of its kind between the Bardo and Prague Museums. The selected photographs, which also belong to the collection of the Museum of History and the Naprstek Museum, bear witness to the journeys made by Czechoslovaks to Tunisia during the 1st period of existence of independent Czechoslovakia, that is between the two world wars.
