FRANTIŠEK BIDLO – HOMO POLITICUS
František Bidlo emerged after the mid-1920s as one of the most accomplished authors of picture drawings of politics; in the 1930s, many of the critics called him to be the first and the most distinguished political caricaturist of the day. The exhibition will display Bidlo’s vision of an impending war; caricatures showing criticism against the social inequality, the police repression and surveillance; one section will be devoted to pictures drawn for Štýrský’s Erotic Revue. František Bidlo has importantly contributed to the recognition of caricature to be a relevant genre of visual arts. Bidlo, who would frequently predict consequences of the 1930s’ ideological shifts, became a victim of the Nazism just one mere day following the Nazi German surrender.
