Related pages

In the dayDSC8218s from 22 February to 4 March, there was a photography exhibition called „China Un/known“ in the atrium of Rajská Building. The first edition of this event, mainly arranged by the minor in Chinese Studies and held under the patronage of the Faculty of International Relations, was aimed on the beautiful diversity of China. The main intention was to support this way the interest of students and public in Chinese culture and China in general.

Many members of the current and the past Faculty management, including the dean doc. Ing. Josef Taušer, Ph.D., as well as the representatives of the partner organisations were present at the opening ceremony on 22 February at VSE. Teachers of Chinese studies, doc. Ing. Zuzana Stuchlíková, Ph.D. and Ing. Jan Bejkovský, moderated the evening and the councillor of the embassy of People’s Republic of China delivered an introduction speech at the beginning of the whole event. The representatives of Czech China Chamber of Collaboration, the main partner of the exhibition, and the representatives of Týden magazine, the media partner, as honourable guests accepted the invitation too. It shall not be forgotten to mention the Huang He restaurant, which provided the reward for the winners.

More than 70 pictures entered the contest of the most interesting photography taken in China and the teachers of Chinese Studies chose the best 30 for the final exhibition in February. Another 20 photographies exhibited in the atrium were pictures taken by the professors of Chinese Studies themselves, who shared their experiences from the distant journeys of China. You can find the pictures from the opening ceremony as well as the other contest photographies on the facebook page of Chinese Studies.

The student contest itself was divided into four categories. The winner of the first one was chosen and rewarded by Týden magazine. The other two were charged by the academic community. The teachers of Chinese Studies selected three best pictures in the main category and the representatives of the Faculty management picked the winner of the third. A special part of the last category consisted of a vote on Facebook where all the fans, friends, classmates and sympathizers could give ‟likes” to their favourites.

Markéta Dvořáková (FIR) with her pictures of Chinese countryside succeeded right in three categories and just as successful was Kateřina Bendlová (FIR) and her photos of the hill Emeishan or Labrang Monastery.
