Nová synagóga:


16. 5. – 9. 6.


Kristína Kandriková

Kristína is a painter who explores formal nature of paintings and the painting space. She also uses materials that are not meant for paintings such as coloured transparent foils, which, thanks to their transparency and different layerings, allow natural transmission of light in various densities, intensities and colours. You have an opportunity to meet Kristína in the central space of the New synagogue and have a peek at her creative process. She will use the residence to experiment with large-format painting and transform the space into a painting studio filled with coloured light, glow, reflections and air.


24. 5. – 5. 6.


Aftersphéra / Dominik Hlinka deconstructed the Sphere

We’ve kept several paintings by Dominik Hlinka for two weeks, which were created in the last month during his residency and which you were able to see during the deconstruction of the Sphere or installed in the elevator and on the piles of wooden pieces. We’ve made a decision to exhibit these paintings separately …


7. 6. – 8. 6.



A productive meeting where we’re hoping to find new opportunities for involving people in cultural activities. Especially those who get these opportunities rarely or/and have limited options – e.g. people with disabilities, people from minority communities, socially excluded groups, etc. Rather than inclusion, we will talk about a mixability approach, in which we do not focus on the integration of people with specific handicaps, but in which we strive for even more openness. The meeting is facilitated by Soňa Holúbková.


Wednesday 8. 6., at 5 :00 p.m.

commented tour

Kristína Kandriková on light and colour

By a joined conversation – and an insight into thinking about colour and light – we will end the painter’s three week residence. Kristína Kandriková explores the space from balconies to windows, works with its atmosphere, openness, light and enters it with abstract large-format paintings.

cinema + discussion

Gabi from 8 to 13 + Discussion about gender identity (Gabi od 8 do 13 + Diskusia o transrodovej identite)

Gabi doesn’t fit in the boxes created by society. He doesn’t notice much difference between boys and girls. He dresses and expresses himself according to gender norms.

Gender identity is an important topic that will resonate more and more in society. Therefore, it is very important not to turn our backs and close our eyes on this topic, but to discuss it openly. Only this way can we improve the quality of life and public acceptance of the said people. Therefore, we have prepared a special screening of the document for you, which will be followed by a discussion.
