Milan Stanco: vDoma
Gradually, our sensitivity to the suffering of Ukrainians is dulling. Milan Stanco’s installation on the sidewalk in front of the New Synagogue is a reminder not to forget. It is inspired by interviews with Ukrainian teacher and artist Tamara Turljun, who lives and works in Kiev. Tamara does not use words like apartment or house when communicating with children. Many of them no longer have it. The war destroyed them. It is too sensitive of a topic that triggers their psychological traumas. We therefore decided to call the artwork more consciously, vDoma – which in ukrainian means „to be at home“.
27. 6. – 27. 7.
Marsel Onisko: Everything around
The exhibition of the poet, musician, actor and artist from Uzhgorod mainly reflects current events in Ukraine. It is composed of a set of 25 digital prints, which have been gradually created since the beginning of the russian aggression. We chose to put up the exhibition at this time so that visitors of the Fest Anča animation festival could also see it. Marsel Onisko will present his graphics and collages for the third time at this festival.
30. 6. – 3. 7.

Sphere at the Pohoda festival 2022
Tirelessly, we help the Sphere to travel and create more chapters of its history. For a start, it will rest at the Trenčín airport as part of the concept of the visual stage of the Pohoda festival and it is going to be the longest-lasting construction at the airport ( work lasts from the beginning of June to the end of July). In the architectural space of stages, tents, cafeterias, toilets, car parks, concrete and grassy areas, the construction of the Sphere will be a complex, but also a regular addition to the space. It will be a recognisable place to visit, to find a cool part of it, to rest, to look at the festival from the high and to listen to regular discussions or led discussions…
10. 7. – 16. 7.

Kiosk 15 – about theater and dance
Our and your favourite festival this time in the spirit of After Human. The future is bright. It doesn’t matter how we end up (big bomb, tsunami, meteorite, plague, infertility), once that happens.

Theatres too, but will theatricality disappear?

An international team of performers (Nela. H. Kornetová, Jaro Viňarský, Matthew Rogers, Jan Husták & Björn Hansson) explores breathing as a life force that drives and transforms us.

The Blues Brothers
One of the best musical comedies of all time (after the death of comedian John Belushi, it literally became a cult classic) is an ideal film for the summer cinema, because it will stir your blood and entertain you. The basic plot is nothing special. Brothers Elwood and Jake Blues, in the name of rescuing the orphanage where they grew up, decide to re-establish their blues band.

The cult classic whirlwind in Parisian suburbs may not be so well known to the general public, but the title appears very often in film circles. Jew Vinz, African Hubert and Arab Saïd spend their days aimlessly in the concrete environment of the suburbs and give the French immigrant population human faces. Hatred, a milestone in French cinema, is a bold, disturbing and visually explosive view of the „banlieue“ district in the suburbs of Paris.
France / 1995 / 97 min / directed by: Mathieu Kassovitz
