Czech Winter

28. 12. 2020 05. 03. 2021 The event takes place online

During the winter time the Czech Centre Seoul is introducing the history of winter sports in the Czech lands, the most outstanding Czech sportspersons and the beauty of Czech winter landscape. On its Facebook and Instagram there will be displayed a selection of the best art works, which created students in the Atelier of Media and Didactic Illustration at the Ladislav Sutnar Faculty of Design and Art, the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen, under the guidance of a renowned Czech author and illustrator of the literature for children, Renáta Fučíková, with the aim to express honour to Czech sportspersons, whose effort contributes systematically to a good reputation of the Czech Republic abroad. Through real stories of selected Czech sportspersons young authors aim to emphasize basic ideas of sport and the highest human values.

The selection of student art works was presented for the times in 2018 on an exhibition of the same title held in Seoul on the occasion of the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang. The same year the Albatros Publishing Company published a selection of these illustrations with additional texts in a book, which was nominated for a prestigious Golden Ribbon award in two categories. This fact proved the high quality of the young generation illustrators. In 2019 the Czech Centre Seoul and the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Seoul published the Korean translation.
