Life is Life
On Jul 1-5, 7-12, 14-19, 21-26 and 28-31 at 8 pm
In a new original František Kratochvíl’s approach to the black theatre,
you will experience a common day and maybe a bit usual life. The per-
formance connects several principles of black theatre into one non-ver-
bal performance. It is a mixture of basic three-dimensional black theatre,
comics, dance and pantomime. You will see humorous and grotesc parts
and also poetry of drawn black theatre, contemporary dance pieces
alternate with classical ballet and this all is tied together by the per-
formance of the main characters. The performance is interactive and
the spectators are welcome to take part in the show.

The only Black Theatre to reveal its secret! Every performance is fol-
lowed by an interactive workshop! Air-conditioning

nations. It is a very interesting
selection of works by authors
who live and work in Hungary,
Finland, Bosnia, Serbia or Great
Britain. Some of the authors are

ing larger-than-life coloured animal figures made from plastic. It is an
extensive installation that reminds of the legacy of pop-art and brings a
pleasant change to the mainly traditional exhibition program.

Palace). Later on her works were exhibited in other cities and countries:
in the Egon Schiele Art Centre in Český Krumlov, in the Amos Anderson
Museum in Helsinki, and last year during the famous Kassel Documents
and not too long ago Mrs. Kolářová had an exhibition in Vienna.
Probably the most extensive and carefully selected retrospective was in
the Museum of Art in Olomouc, for which a detailed catalogue was pub-
lished. The selection of works which are being presented in Museum
Kampa, which focuses on artists of her generation, represent Běla
Kolářová's experimental photography of the nineteen fifties and her
assemblages from the nineteen sixties. The art works at this exhibition
are on loan from several public and private collections and several works
are from the artist's own private collection. An extensive catalogue, con-
taining photographs of all the works shown at this exhibition, will be
published. Běla Kolářová lived for several years in Paris before moving
back to Prague after the Velvet Revolution with her husband Jiří Kolář.

        The Paper of the Earth
      (collages made using ancient
           Aztecan techniques)

The artist was born in 1960 in
Mexico. After graduation in journal-
ism, she attended the Academy of
Fine Arts of the Mexico Capital and
the School of Arts in Toronto
(Canada). In Toronto, she specialized
in graphics and lithography (Open-
Study Programme). So far, more than
30 individual and more than 50 col-
lective exhibitions of her works have been realized. She exhibited in
Mexico, Canada, USA, Chile, Columbia, Costa Rica, England and Germany.

                                     The exhibitied works combine mod-
                                     ern expression with ancient, tradi-
                                     tional processing of ficus paper,
                                     which first occured in the pre-coloni-
                                     sation era and was that time used as
                                         a sacrificial item for the dead.
                                     From the 1960's, ficus paper is con-
                                     nected with the village San Pablito
                                     Pahualtan. Its people, though of
                                     catholic confession, still worship nat-

                                     These figures are added to other sac-

                                     to ashes; this ritual then cleansed
                                           and healed the sick person.

                  ATTRACTION / REPULSION
                          from Jun 23-Sep 14
      The exhibition joins together works of two artists who have
      the same source of inspiration: science. Before they turned
        to art, they both had graduated in physics. Their works
         depict the consequences of attraction and repulsion,
                      both physical and emotional.

Tamsin van Essen:
Health Legacy
Exposition inspired by the obses-
sion of our society with cosmetic
perfection and fear of 'abnormali-
ty' explores the stigmas of illness-
es and fetishism of medicine. The
ceramic objects are derived from
pharmaceutical dishes from the
17th and 18th centuries; they are a
metaphor for human body, they
become vases for illnesses instead
of being containers for medicines.

                                  Jonathan Feldschuh:
                                  Large Hadron Collider
                                  This summer, the biggest and most effi-
                                  cient particle accelerator ever, ‘LHC’,
                                  will be put in order in CERN. It promis-
                                  es to achieve so far unaccomplishable
                                  energetic values and maybe verify or fal-
                                  sify some theories about fundamental
                                  principles of nature. Recent works of J.
                                  Feldschuh are variations on structures
                                  of the LHC. Architectonical schemes of
various detectors and tunnels blend with random paint splatters. The
paint collided with the surface and the collision left its traces on it...

Photograph Exhibition: 1968 - Pictures of the Revolt, until Jul 24
25 photographs of the students' movement in Germany by Barbara
Klemm. The author is one of the outstanding chronicler of recent
German history. As an editorial photographer of FAZ, she has followed
the political and social events in the 'old' FRG and GDR since the 1960's.
The photographs were first exhibited in the Museum of History in
Berlin and then in the Kunsthalle Schirn in Frankfurt under the title
'Our Times - Photographs from Germany 1968-1998'. Forty years after
1968 it is time to look back. Barbara Klemm assembled this exhibition
exclusively for exhibitions at Goethe-Institutes in the Central and
Eastern Europe.

From Jul 24-Aug 24. FMSW was founded in 2001 by Lina Faller, Marcel
Miethe, Thomas Stussi and Susanne Weck in Berlin. Where are we actu-
ally? Location and time determine their art. On one hand, it is a ques-
tion of orientation and setting by means of GPS and world cultural his-
tory. On the other hand, individual places provide a plot frame for tem-
porary works: pasteboard sculptures, winter landscapes, remote beach-
es. In July, they will create a new site specific project in the
MeetFactory. Open Wed-Sun 3 pm-8 pm. More information on

FILM

MEETFACTORY GALLERY Ke Sklárně 15, Prague 5
Berlin Alexanderplatz (REMASTERED)
Every Wednesday until Sep 17 at 10 pm. Directed by Rainer Werner
Fassbinder, 1980 (13 parts and epilogue). In German with English sub-
titles. Monumental piece of film art of the late 20th century; it is an
adaptation of Alfred Doblin's novel that, as Fassbinder himself claimed,
craved deep into his soul and body. In spite of a number leading and sec-
ondary motives, the plot of this movie cannot be narrated. The director
does not consider the content important, it is rather a 'sequence of dis-
arranged small stories, any of which could occur as a banner headline in
the most obscene tabloids' (Fassbinder'). What is also important is the
author's attitude to individual characters: even in the meanes human
behaviour he sees the longing for tenderness, violence is just a form of
love, and people who find the way to each other keep hurting one anoth-
er. Originally, this film was created in 1979-1980 for television, now it
was digitally remastered for cinema screenings. More info on

SVÌTOZOR CINEMA Vodičkova 41, Prague 1
Documentary Mondays: This Year in Czernowitz, on Jul 7 at 830 pm
Directed by Volker Koepp (Ger, 2004), in German with English subti-
tles. Internationally well-known documentarist occupies himself with the
stories of Jewish people living in Berlin, Vienna and America whose fam-
ilies came from Czernowitz (Ucr). Six yeares after shooting the docu-
mentary 'Mr. Zwilling and Mrs. Zuckermann', he returns to Bukovina
again. His movie tells us about people who emigrated and spread all over
the world and now, after a long time, visit their ancerstors' country again
- e. g. Norman Manea, a writer living in America, who was deported to
Auschwitz as a little boy, or the American actor Harvey Keitel, whose
mother came from Bukovina.
