Czechoslovakia’s unique culture of puppet theater reached a glorious apex between about 1900 and 1950, and its visual style was integral to the development of modernist and contemporary theater and animation. 'The Puppet and the Modern' looks at this incredibly fertile phase in puppetry in Bohemia and Moravia and traces the development of stage design and stage technologies, also focusing on the connection of artists from disciplines and styles – designers, carvers, painters and scenographers – to the development of avant-garde and modernist currents in twentieth-century art.
