We cordially invite you to the exhibition THE STORY OF ONE BEDROOM, which is dedicated to the end of the war 75 years ago.
The story is told by an ordinary bedroom from the 1930s about the difficult times of its owners, German and Czech families. Prepared by the museum library in cooperation with the furniture curator of the Regional Museum and Gallery in Most, after Alena and Diana Kvapilových, Miroslav Vrba.
It will run from 2 June to 25 October 2020.
Information about the exhibition: The Museum Library, represented by Alena Kvapilová and Diana Kvapilová, in collaboration with the curator of the furniture collection Miroslav Vrba, prepared a small exhibition in the form of a story of memories of an ordinary bedroom from the 1930s. The authors of the exhibition drew on materials from Jaroslav Drbohlav, the Laviček family archive, and the Jana Foukalová photo archive. The exhibition is conceived as the story of a bedroom that tells the difficult times of its owners – the family of the German businessman Karel Kraus, who became famous as a manufacturer of children’s sponge cakes and in 1945 committed suicide with his whole family and subsequently the couple Laviček, who returned from a concentration camp and bought this bedroom for their new home: “… I liked my owners … Just thinking about the troubled destinies of both families I belonged to would it be nice if they didn’t have to experience their sad stories. The first was happy and ended sadly, the second on the contrary … “
“I didn’t tell you my story to feel sorry for me, but to learn from it.”
The exhibition takes place from 2 June to 25 October 2020, without opening.

Warwick Castle is a medieval castle developed from a wooden fort, originally built by William the Conqueror during 1068. Warwick is the county town of Warwickshire, England, situated on a bend of the River Avon. The original wooden motte-and-bailey castle was rebuilt in stone during the 12th century. During the Hundred Years War, the facade opposite the town was refortified, resulting in one of the most recognisable examples of 14th-century military architecture. It was used as a stronghold until the early 17th century, when it was granted to Sir Fulke Greville by James I in 1604. Greville converted it to a country house and it was owned by the Greville family, who became Earls of Warwick in 1759, until 1978 when it was bought by the Tussauds Group. In 2007, the Tussauds Group was purchased by The Blackstone Group which merged it with Merlin Entertainments; Warwick Castle was then sold to Nick Leslau’s investment firm Prestbury Group under a sale and leaseback agreement.(Wikipedia)

Born from the will of Mrs. Nadia Karmous, to propose in Switzerland a space around the muslim culture, the MUCIVI (Museum of the civilization of Islam) allows the cultural pole that is the Chaux-de-Fonds, to welcome a place of exchanges, meetings, and discoveries. The exhibition museum traces, in an innovative staging, mixing images, sounds, lighting atmospheres and technological devices, 15 centuries of history of the civilizations of Islam; a movement that leads to the proliferation of practices and questions posed today by a religion practiced by more than a billion and a half individuals around the world.
Opened in 2016, the Mucivi is housed in a listed Art Nouveau building on the main artery of the watchmaking metropolis. The latter also has several renowned cultural institutions whose architecture of streets and buildings has been listed since 2009 as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. On the facade of the building, five women – allegories from five continents – place the visit under the auspices of the meeting and travel. The Mucivi was realized by a multidisciplinary team of specialists: a long-term project, dating back to the early 2000s, for a unique place in Europe.
In 1985 Lord Sainsbury of Preston Candover and his brothers The Hon. Simon Sainsbury and Sir Timothy Sainsbury generously agreed to finance the construction of a new wing for the Gallery.
A site next to the Gallery had been vacant since the Second World War when a furniture shop was destroyed by bombing. The new Sainsbury Wing was opened in 1991, to display the entire early Renaissance collection.
This followed on from the Northern Extension, which opened in 1975, providing considerable extra exhibition space: nine large rooms and three smaller ‘cabinet’ rooms. These new galleries made use of natural lighting as far as possible.
The Sainsbury Wing was added to the National Heritage List for England (Grade 1) in 2018.
Following the completion of the Sainsbury Wing, the Gallery has a total floor area of 46,396 metres squared – equivalent to around six football pitches. It would be big enough to hold over 2,000 London double-decker buses. (The National Gallery)
The Sainsbury Wing was built to house the National Gallery’s world-class collection of Early Renaissance paintings. Comprising 16 rooms displaying over 270 works from 1200 to 1500, it first opened to the public in July 1991.
Take a virtual tour of the collection and immerse yourself in spellbinding works of art, including ‘The Wilton Diptych’, van Eyck’s ‘Arnolfini Portrait’, Botticelli’s ‘Venus and Mars’ and Leonardo’s ‘Virgin of the Rocks’.

The Severn has a sheerline that sweeps down for ease of survivor recovery. The Penlee Lifeboat is inherently self-righting and should it be knocked over in extreme weather, it will automatically right itself within a few seconds. Her propellers and rudders lie in partial tunnels set into the hull that, along with the two bilge keels, provide excellent protection from damage in shallow water. In addition to her twin engines, the Severn is fitted with a hydraulic-powered bow thruster for improved maneuverability. The comprehensive electronics include VHF and MF radios with DSC functionality, VHF direction finder, DGPS with electronic chart system and radar. The Severn carries a small Y boat, which is an inflatable daughter boat complete with a 15hp outboard engine. This small craft can be launched with a crane and is used in moderate conditions to access areas where the lifeboat cannot reach. Comprehensive first aid equipment includes stretchers, oxygen, and Entonox. Other equipment includes a portable salvage pump carried in a watertight container. The last Severn class lifeboat was built in 2004. The lifeboats undergo a regular condition-based maintenance regime to check their condition.

Here’s yet another “classical” museum with plenty of Soviet artifacts. One of Belarus’ most famous sculptors, Zair Azgur authored many sculptures in Minsk, including Lenin’s monument and statues of poet Jakub Kolas and his literary heroes. Housed inside the sculptor’s former workshop, the museum allows you to feel as a Lilliput in the country of Soviet-made Gullivers. If you are lucky, you can also get some alternative culture experience. The museum’s management is open to creative ideas and cultural initiatives that are allowed to organize events here. Just imagine: a hall with giant sculptures along the walls turns into a stage for Belarus poetry evenings, indie music concerts and art performances. (ctv.by)
