THE STAR CIRCLE is an international exhibition on the occasion of the 55th anniversary of the Most Beautiful Czech Books competition. It presents books as beautiful objects, quality products of craft and art, and compares books of two editions of similar competitions abroad. Through five artworks by Jan Hendrych, Krištof Kintera, Petra Pešková, Michal Pustějovský and Jindřich Zeithamml, it also thematises the moment of judgment, the complexity of decision-making, and the danger of a cult.
The exhibition is being held under the auspices of the Minister of Culture of the Czech Republic, Lubomír Zaorálek, and the Mayor of the City of Prague, Zdeněk Hřib.
