Exhibitions

Occasional exhibitions of finds from the excavations in Těšetice became a regular part of conferences and thematic seminars. It is necessary to mention a 2008 exhibition installed in Znojmo Castle on the occasion of an international conference on the Neolithic and Eneolithic of Central Europe: “Život a smrt v mladší době kamenné – Life and Death in the New Stone Age”.

The finds from Těšetice also are presented in exhibitions of the Brno City Museum: for example, the original female statuettes were lent to the exhibition titled “100 000 Years of Sex” in 2008-2009. The finds and replicas of tools were shown in an exhibition of the Moravian Museum dedicated to the first farmers (1 March – 31 October 2009).

The finds from Těšetice were several times lent to foreign exhibitions as well (2000 – Fiorano Modenese; 2001 and 2009/2010 – Milan). Selected exhibits from our locality became an important part of prestigious catalogue publications, such as Prime terrecotte dal cuore delľ Europa or Antenate di Venere. 27.000 – 4000 a.C.

On the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the excavation start at Těšetice-Kyjovice, an exhibition of finds from Těšetice was prepared in 2014 for a wider faculty and university community.
