Dear All,

EAST-CENTRAL EUROPE, 1960-1990 we are cordially invite you to the

"Underground Rock and the Alternative Scene in Czechoslovakia during
the 1970-1980’s"  
presented by Martin Machovec (Prague) and Trever Hagen (Exeter)

January 28, Wednesday at 17:30
TIGY Room, CEU (1051 Bp. Nádor u. 9 Courtyard)

Film screening to follow:
"The Plastic People of the Universe" (CZ, 2001, 74 mins, in Czech with
English subtitles, dir: Jana Chytilova)

January 28, Wednesday at 19:30 p.m.
Auditorium, CEU (1051 Bp. Nádor u. 9)

What looks like a silly title is actually a compelling story of musical
passion against governmental odds. While The Plastic People of the
Universe is mostly a talking-head video about the Czech rock and roll
band formed in 1968, the description of various oppressive measures that
the regime took to silence the band’s lyrical rebellion is certainly a
journey worth hearing about.
Entrance is free! Everyone is welcome." 

Organizers: Gábor Klaniczay, Balázs Trencsényi, Zsuzsanna Török
supported by Pasts, Inc. Center for Historical Studies, Center for Art
and Culture, CEU, Czech Center in Budapest
