New Episode: Kitchen Conversations Ep. 51

in conversations with Czech photographer and educator, Libuše Jarcovjáková

Her distinctive work was first shown to a wide audience at Les Rencontres d’Arles in 2019, when Libuše was already in her 60s. Since then, her black and white analogue photographs depicting islands of freedom in a grey, communist Czechoslovakia have attracted much international attention. Today her work is often compared to the work of American icon Nan Golden. 

As a tribute to Libuše’s work, Czech filmmaker Klára Tasovská has created a film based on her photographs and diary entries entitled ‘I’m Not Everything I Want to Be’, which has just premiered at this 74th Berlinale Film Festival.
