Today we divide – premiere
Two years have passed since November 1989 and the talks of how to organize the new state, which would finally bring the promised bigger autonomy of both parts of Czechoslovakia, are growing. What began as a revision of a mutual relationship is now threatening its existence. The dialogue between the then Czech prime minister Václav Klaus and president of Slovakia Vladimír Mečiar promises a thrilling duel between two different, yet in some sense similar men. What role did our different histories play in the dissolution of Czechoslovakia? What were we willing to do for the other party in order to stay together? And wasn’t the dissolution really just a matter of both the political leaders’ egos?
Just how the dissolution of the state was decided will be shown in villa Tugendhat, an inseparable part of the event.
