Summer: empty Sphere

After two introductory exhibitions, when other artists entered the Sphere with their works, we leave it empty for July- mainly because we host two festivals in July. On some days it will be empty completely, come and enjoy it all by yourself (we are open from Tuesday to Sunday, 13:00 - 19:00). You can get lost in the dense forest of beams. Enter, lie down and look at the sky, or climb up the Sphere and measure its proportions. We invite you on July 10th to try skating for the public and test the Sphere with our four “riders” (artist, designer, curator, technician).

Admission: 5 euros

Young Office: tea party

Mad Hatter’s Tea Party

On Monday the 5th, an odd thing will happen. A rabbit will fall into a hole that will leave him no escape! It's the mad hatter's tea party! The table is set and the tea is brewing, all we need is people! Will you join this hullabaloo? Don't make any other plans until the evening (22:00). Bring your best suit, and an imagination for the absurd! There will be tea and cake and pencils and capes. Cats and rabbits and smokes of all palettes. It will be an afternoon of rather odd habits! The event is organised by the "Young Office of Stanica".

Admission: FREE

Do-it-herself: Give pockets to my clothes!

We no longer accept dresses and skirts that don’t have pockets. Why couldn't this piece of clothing be nice and functional at the same time? The solution is simple: just tear the dress at the sides, create a pocket of the required size, insert it in the "hole" and sew it together. We can provide you with the necessary material, but we will be happy if you bring your own sewing machine. Registration is not necessary, just buy a ticket. Contact is nienke@stanica.sk (Nienke Voorintholt).

Something round about Pohoda

Further verification of the possibilities of the space and the situation of the Sphere need to be made. The story of the installation in the gallery space does not end. After its final uninstallation, it should find its place outdoors. From the clippings - which we have left after installing Sphere in Nová synagóga - we put something together with you at Trenčín airport and it will definitely be something round again. Round thing.

Bad Luck Banging or Loony Porn

The video becomes viral. It shows sex between a man and a woman in a veil. The woman is, despite the camouflage, identified. It is a pity that she is a teacher and she should have been a role model. Moreover, in the (post - socialist, but in the end any) society that will soon be lost in a seemingly unifying benevolent view of social discourse, pseudo-political omniscience, hypocritical chauvinism and grotesque conspiracy theories. Everyone has their opinion. The discussion became a tribunal - on consensual sex, pornography and more.

Žilina re-invented: green screen the city

In this workshop we will play with green screens throughout the city. Together, we will create min-portals, into a different side of Žilina. We will walk through town, observe its corners and work together to add new elements to it. It is going to be an exploration, an experimentation. We will think of elements that could add a certain twist to the city, we will add them, we will react to them. From drawings to newly recorded footage, we will play with different textures, colors, and materials just as well as with different layers, angles and depth. By the end of the workshop we should have a little video, a snippet of our adventures. In it, we will be able to see the portals we created and the way they interact. Organized by our volunteer Luna Mafo.

Admission: FREE

Another round

There is a theory that we are born with a small amount of alcohol in the blood. This mild intoxication opens our minds to the world around us, reduces problems and increases creativity. Encouraged by this theory, Martin and his three friends, all tired high school teachers, embark on an experiment to maintain a moderate level of intoxication during the working day. If Churchill was able to win World War II, who knows what could cause them a few drops. The initial results are positive and this small teaching project is upgraded to real academic study. The results are improving and the group feels full of life again. However, when they overdo it, experiment for some continues and others are excluded from it. It is becoming increasingly clear that while alcohol has led to excellent results, some bold actions have their consequences.
