Exhibition Overview

The Eugenic Minds project, comprised of a documentary by Pavel Stingl, animations and paintings by Xenia Hoffmeisterová, and literary artwork by Patrik Ouředník, offers timeless meditation upon the abuse of the human pinnacles of science and education. It also addresses the question of academic careerism, which under totalitarian regimes reaches self-destructive proportions. This exhibition is the first presentation abroad by the Shoah Memorial Prague.
