temporary exhibition

Plečnik and the Sacred

12. 10. 2018–20. 1. 2019

On the basis of original written records, sketches and correspondences, as well as completed projects at home and abroad, the Plečnik and the Sacred exhibition will strive to present Plečnik's idea of what is sacred. Plečnik's concept of "sacred" is not only linked with his religious beliefs, as it also encompasses ideas of morality, rectitude, righteousness and, after all, architecture itself.

Special attention must also be given to Plečnik's perception of faith as a personal matter, the nature of his Christianity, which often came close to the spirit of early Christian communities, and to his relationship towards institutionalised religion.

One of the exhibition's key goals is therefore to unveil the impulse that positioned Plečnik, according to the opinion of several experts, in the role of a reformer of the church space. On this basis, the architect envisioned his plans, which often elevated above the stiff dogmatics and plain religious devotion, and often unveiled entirely individual features.

The exhibition will source most of its material from the Plečnik Collection and will display preserved letters, sketches, plans, photographs, and models, all connected to the show's theme.
