28.9.2021 - 29.3.2022 - FOMA 100 years
The National Technical Museum, in cooperation with FOMA BOHEMIA, has prepared a retrospective exhibition of FOMA on the occasion of the centenary. The exhibition maps the history of this purely Czech company and from the rich history of product types presents typical examples of their original design.
The exhibition was created on the occasion of the centenary of the production of mostly black and white photographic materials in the company Fotochema (subsequently Foma) with a permanent seat in the "Salon of the Republic" - Hradec Králové. It is conceived chronologically and maps the history of the company on exhibition panels with a description of the period, supplemented by concise period photographs, including a schematic illustration of a complex light-sensitive emulsion coating system. From the rich history of product types, typical examples of their original design in an interesting stylistic confrontation are presented here, as well as production equipment (film perforating machine), laboratory aids, etc. This exhibition also includes an audiovisual projection from the TV program Family Silver.
