OK, last post from my trip to the Czech Republic, I promise! This is a museum wallpaper display from the Museum of Communism in Prague.
They used museum wallpaper displays for a lot of the museum. If you think about it, it’s a great way to do photos and text together on a wall. Digital printing of wallpaper makes it affordable as well as easy to install.
Sure, they had old uniforms and stuff from the uranium mine, but most of what they had was photographs. That lent itself to museum wallpaper displays that showed the photographs with an explanation. Indeed, much of the story of communism there was that of people who made it happen and those who opposed it and eventually dismantled it.
