Nova synagóga:


until 19. 3.


From dawn to dusk – Luděk Rathouský and Richard Loskot

Both artists have already exhibited in the New synagogue. Richard Loskot quite a long time ago at the construction site, at the beginning of our reconstruction, when his clean sheets of paper from the printer in the dome fell to the ground. Luděk Rathouský, on the other hand, three years ago, as a member of the Rafani group, when the theses about irrefutability in the land beyond the horizon were reflected in the lake under the dome. Now their works meet in one space at the exhibition of images and reflections.

About the reconstruction of the New synagogue with Marek Adamov

In January, it is ten years since we first publicly admitted that we are working on the reconstruction and restoration of the New synagogue and that the Centrum cinema will become a „kunsthalle“. We have decided that once in a while we will revive the story of the reconstruction and bring it to light in the form of a lecture or a discussion. In order not to forget how it was and why it was possible. Because it could have turned out quite differently.
