Josef Váchal was a Czech painter, printmaker, illustrator, sculptor, carver and also writer and poet. His most famous literary work is Bloody novel. In the book which was finished in 1924 he paid tribute to a popular reading of the 19th century, a bloody novel so-called "krvák". Váchal was an enthusiastic expert, collector and admirer of this trash genre (which is typical for being simple-minded, comprehensible, full of romance and adventure). And so we are! There is also an exhibition (accessible after the show) called Interactive Panopticon! in which you can admire, explore and play with the mechanical objects made by Bára Hubená...and not only that.
