The exhibition in the Gallery of the Capital City of Prague wants to show the life of the First Republic in Czechoslovakia in 15 thematic rooms, such as scenes from cafes, joy, women’s emancipation or national minorities, but also the flip side of life in the city and in the countryside, poverty and unemployment.

The modern realist works of the interwar period respond to the social success of the newly established middle class while at the same time noting the social problems of an economically divided society. It reflects the changes in everyday life driven by the development of technology, the possibilities of travel, communication and entertainment. They are interested in the city, at the same time they try to reflect everyday reality in the countryside and in border or mountain regions.

According to the curators, the exhibition represents a different interpretation of modern inter-war art than usual, emphasizing realistic works that at the time of creation tried to respond to current events.
