ANTANAS SUTKUS: COSMOS

Antanas Sutkus (*1939) is an exceptional figure in photography. During the Soviet Occupation his art gave a face to the inhabitants of Lithuania, with his pictures he became a chronicler of his time. Particularly in his main work "People from Lithuania" he captured his compatriots of the late 1950s so impressively that his photos still appeal to us today. The exhibition COSMOS showcases his pictures: normal life on its everyday course. It shows young and old, town and country, modernity and tradition or simply just the rain.
The exhibition was shown in the National Gallery of Vilnius from November 2018 to January 2019 on the centennial of the founding of the Republic of Lithuania. Complementing the exhibition, the book "Antanas Sutkus: Planet Lithuania" was published by Steidl.
