Event (general): Launching of the 'Authentic' project
The Authentic project of the Literary Archive of the Museum of Czech Literature (LA PNP) began in 1990. The goal of the project was to create video and audio recordings from the various spheres of the Czech literary scene, both from public (e.g. authors’ readings by writers and poets, discussions, literary conferences etc.) and non-public (e.g. recordings of the memoirs of writers, poets and contemporary witnesses) events. The project was significantly restricted in 1996 and completely stopped by the board of PNP in summer 2009. During the duration of the project, around 1,160 interviews, literary readings and other events were recorded, mostly by Petr Kotyk. These recordings are now an important part of the video and audio library of the LA PNP, which was founded in 1978.
