June Program

4 Feb - 10 June | Nová synagóga

Public art installation

Dagmar Šubrtová: Rekultivácia / Reclamation

The temporary installation is still there. A counterpoint to Juraj Gábor’s wooden Sphéra, this installation by Dagmar Šubrtová consists of an array of metal silhouettes of dried trees. It is an eloquent symbol of the country's growing devastation and long-term ill-treatment of large natural territories.  The trees are placed right outside Nova Synagoga. 

Admission: FREE


6 - 27 June | Nová synagóga


Slavomíra Ondrušová stays in the Sphere

An almost two-month long artistic residency, this will be the starting point for the artist's applied sense of a concentrated experiencing and recording of the essence of the environment in her surroundings. Slavomíra is a master of the linear trace, drawn daily in her own sketch  "notebooks". In May, she will be meandering through all the various nooks and crannies of the Sphere to find places that are not easy to get to.

Admission: Not for the public  


1 May - 30 June | Stanica

Exhibition of photographs

Døkument 20 2.1

A smaller selection - a site-specific installation of photographs in different parts of Stanica’s interior - from the Døkument 2020 exhibition, which was closed for most of its duration at the Miloš Alexander Bazovský Gallery in Trenčín at the turn of 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic. In agreement with the curators Ján Viazanička, Veronika Marek Markovičová and Michaela Pašteková, we reinstalled it in the non-ceremony environment of our cultural-railway station. It is accessible according to the current pandemic measures as well as the whole Stanica.

Admission: Donation-based (5 euros)

Concert and discussion [SK]


The engaging band consists of a mixture of musicians from Slovakia and Hungary (Michal Kaščák / vocals, Miroslav Tóth / saxophone, Marek Buranovský / guitar, Lucia Chutková - Džubáková / keyboards, Jozef Krupa / drums, Márton Czernovsky / bass guitar). The author of the project is composer and saxophonist Miroslav Tóth. Marek Kundlák's lyrics together with an intense sound beyond standard genres test the conscience of the time before the revolutionary year 1989 and today. The concert is preceded by a discussion between Fedor Blaščák and Jergus Sivoš from the Nation's Memory Institute on the topic of Alojz Lorenc's career in the communist security forces in the light of archival documents.

Admission: 9 euros


4 - 27 June | Nová synagóga


Slavomíra Ondrušová and Martin Hreha stay in the Sphéra
Guests: Petra Dubach and Mario Van Horrik
Curator: Juraj Gábor
Curatorial collaboration: Erik Vilím


Process exhibition, in which the authors emphasize the demonstration of authentic traces of the process of creation, chaining of relationships and emerging connections between their works. It will begin as if through an empty Sphere and from the walls to the center of the synagogue the works will gradually increase. Opposites of concrete-abstract, procedural-static, physical-mental will be the subject "Interviews" by the two authors: Martin Hreh and Slávka Ondrušová. Both sensitive to the architectural properties of the Nová synagóga are preparing an exhibition that combines the intimacy and monumentality of a fine line of drawing, and painting gesture. At the same time, the presence of the body persists, as the introductory week of the exhibition includes movement inputs from the performer Tomáš Janypka. You will also find your place in the exhibition with the sound project WAVES from Dutch sound artists Petra Dubach and Maria Van Horri.

Admission: 5 euros


5 - 27 June | Sat | 09.00 | Stanica

Online session


A pandemic project by the Prague dance group Temporary Collective. A virtual voicemail where messages, questions, thoughts, frustrations, emotions can be left and shared. Things that the body can no longer hold on its own and needs to share in order to fulfill them, to get rid of them, to complete and develop them. The box will be open virtually, but we will also create a physical space for it.

Gallery guided tours

Curatorial guided tours of the exhibition Slavomíra Ondrušová and Martin Hreha will continue in the Sphéra. In the tours we aim to help understand the possible meanings of the works and the artists' motivations for creating the exhibition just as they did. We feel it is important to point to a less standard approach, where an exhibition is gradually created over the course of a month by placing works in the gallery, revealing their effect on our senses, and then interpreting them afterwards. The difference in perception and understanding will be conveyed by Juraj Gábor in interviews with the artists.

Admission: 5 euros


9 - 30 June | Wed | 18.00 | Stanica


Yoga in the park
