It's a story that delves into the battle between creativity and destruction, a tale of epic proportions. 
The iMucha project showcases the most extensive collection of posters worldwide, including a digitalized archive of a significant portion of Mucha's work, such as paintings, books, large canvases, jewelry, and decorative objects. Through detailed animations, the iconic beauties from Mucha's posters and the monumental canvases of the Slav Epic spring to life.

The narrative is skillfully guided by the captivating voice of narrator Jiří Dvořák, while the flawless musical interpretation is provided by renowned musicians, including Jiří Vodička, the concertmaster of the Czech Philharmonic, and other exceptional artists.

This unique project offers a feast for the senses, showcasing creativity, innovation, technology, and boundless imagination. 
Not that Mucha and his art needed it... and not that one couldn't raise objections from a purist perspective against, well, let's call it, catering to popular taste. But as the creators themselves suggest, it's not art, it's a show! And indeed, it's a grandiose, eye-catching, epic, meticulously crafted, emotionally and dramaturgically functional show - despite all the elements thrown together. As an incredible multi-genre entertainment and simultaneously a multimedia advertisement for an interactive exhibition, iMucha Show is a fantastic amalgamation of everything old and new from the past century and a half of popular arts. Combined with Mucha's timeless genius, I couldn't resist its allure.
