Museum of Modern Art | Picture Gallery – Cabinet of Drawings and Graphics 

Presentation of the production of one of the most prominent publishers of artists´ books in the world. In 2006, we were granted 200 artists´ books as a gift from Rainer Pretzell, the founder and owner of the Rainer Verlag publishing house in Berlin. Owing to their inventive and experimental approach, cooperation with the publishing house was sought by artists who are still considered giants in the field of artists´ books: Dieter Roth, A. R. Penck, Emmet Williams, Marcel Broodthaers, Ann Noël, Endre Tót, Jan Voss andBen Vautier. The exhibition of artists´ books, drawings, and prints, granted by Rainer Pretzell, will present a part of our collection of artists´ books and books intended as works of art, whose extent and importance is unique not only in the Czech Republic.
