Abstract:

In 1992 the Cooper Union hosted a photographic exhibition entitled "Literary Encounters" that documented an exchange between Czech and American writers in 1985 and 1990. In 1985 the following American writers went to Prague: Arthur Miller, William Styron, Kurt Vonnegut, John Updike, Edward Albee, Galway Kinnell and Robert Stone. In 1990 these Czech writers in turn visited New York City: Jáchym Topol, Arnošt Lustig, Ota Černý, Eda Kriseová, Karel Pecka, Josef Škvorecký and Ivan Klíma. The 34 photographs and didactic panels formed the exhibit, which seems to have been mounted, in part, to celebrate Václav Havel's receipt of the International Peace Prize. Included in the collection is a video of the exhibition.
