Ester Krumbachová (1923 – 1996) was a key figure of the Czechoslovak New Wave. Her unique oeuvre did not only make her one of the most influential women behind the scenes of European cinema of the 60s and early 70s, it also prefigured many contemporary debates around magic, materiality, feminism, sensuous forms of knowledge and the interconnected nature of reality.
Artists and theorists in this exhibition and conference interpret and make accessible for study her recently discovered private archive, containing hitherto unseen evidence of her prolific and visionary work as a costume and production designer, screenwriter, writer, director and artist.
