WELCOME AND KEEP YOUR SHOES ON, PLEASE

Vitajte
The way we lived in the 50s

19th September 2006 – 4th February 2007
Exhibition venues of the Bratislava City Museum, the Old Town Hall
The Bratislava City Museum, Bratislava, the Capital of the SR, Pavel Habáň
 

 
 

The display Welcome and keep your shoes on, please with the subtitle How we lived in the 50s is an invitation to visit a flat dating from the period when social life was relatively stable following the turbulent post-war changes. It lets us take a brief look inside a household of urban middle class representatives which still retained things from “better times” with new devices and materials, e.g. electrical devices or innovative materials, such as plastics and nylon, evidently making their presence felt.

vitajte3For older generations of Bratislavans this display provides a nostalgic memory of their younger years; it lets the younger generation take a look inside the interiors of their parents and grandparents in which the standard equipment of a modern household was formed.

 

The display was realized by its author Pavel Habáň and curator Elena Kurincová with a team of colleagues from collection resources of museums (the BratislavaCityMuseum, SNM – Museum of History, Museum of Trade), items from collectors and also direct from functioning or declining households.

 

The design of the display follows the organic division of a flat unit: entrance hall, bathroom, toilet, storage room, kitchen, living room, bedroom and a room for children. In separate showcases are placed individual items such as glass products, ceramics, textile accessories, electrical devices which give an image of the designs and materials typical of this period. The atmosphere of family life, living and dressing is enhanced by period photographs.
