Exhibition of the magazine’s story: the Student Letters and the 1989 Revolution


2.11. – 3.12.2023


free entry

The Student Letters (SL) at the time of the revolution were created by students, but their content was intended for the wider reading public. This was reflected in the number of copies sold, which today are comparable to the most widely published newspapers. For the next two years, SL authors significantly influenced public life in the early 1990s with their uncompromising positions.

The exhibition Student Letters and the Revolution of 1989 aims to use the story of one magazine to show how the social situation was shaped in a country where a totalitarian regime had fallen and a democratic one was just getting on its feet. The exhibition shows not only the main themes of the time, but also the people who co-created it.
