Hey, it’s Havel!

  • Where: Václav Havel Library, Ostrovní 13, Prague 110 00
  • When: January 6, 2016 01:00 till May 2, 2016 00:00

With a spontaneous cry of “Hey, it’s Havel!” we call on all non-professional photographers to send us pictures in which they managed to capture Václav Havel. With their help, we aim to create a collection that supplements, and its own way celebrates, the mosaic of the life of Václav Havel. If you have any such photographs and would like them to become part of the collection, don’t hesitate to send them to us by post (Václav Havel Library, Ostrovní 13, 110 00 Prague 1) or email ( Please send pictures by no later than 1 May 2016.

All the photos that arrive will be saved in the Digital Archive of the Václav Havel Library and we will compile the best of them – on the occasion of what would have been Václav Havel’s 80th birthday – in the book Hey, it’s Havel! and a travelling exhibition of the same title.
