EYE OVER PRAGUE – screening
68/1 str. Bucuresti, Chisinau
Thursday, April 26, 2012, 8 pm

The launch of KIOSK catalogue will be followed by a screening of the
film EYE OVER PRAGUE (OKO NAD PRAHOU), dir. Olga Spatova, 2009 / Czech
Republic / 78 min.

An extraordinary tale about strongly passionate and elegant architect
Jan Kaplicky with a clear vision of the future who has the biggest
fight on his hands in Prague again. Shot over three years in the UK,
Czech and Italy tells the powerful story of Jan Kaplicky, one of the
most emotional figures in the world of architecture. His greatest
unrealized architectural achievement, the new National library in
Prague means the world to him.

The project called the Eye over Prague is radical, exciting and far
enough ahead of its time to provoke a fair degree of controversy. It
represents a triumphant return to his homeland for the Czech-born
émigré, a vindication of his uncompromisingly forward-looking
philosophy and a tragically poetic ending to his remarkable career.

KIOSK project: http://chiosc.oberliht.com

Following the series of projects titled INTERVENTIONS (2006-2008)
Oberliht association launched the KIOSK project in 2009. Embodied in
FLAT SPACE – a cultural information point and a platform for public
participation, it aims to provide continuity to the previously
organized activities and offer an alternative within a cultural sector
dominated by institutions inherited from the Communist period.
Installed on a tiny segment of municipal ground, squeezed in between
cars aggressively taking over the sidewalks, FLAT SPACE plays the role
of an active agent of bottom-up civic involvement, understanding
cultural engagement as social action capable of producing a critical
culture. The activities built around it address, in its immediate
surroundings, the urgent question of public space. In a broader way
the project offers the basis for the analysis of the cultural, social
and political realities of one of Europe’s suburbs.
