15 Things to do in Prague this week-end

It’s valentines week-end but there is plenty more to do for those who are not feeling very romantic or for those who don’t want to end the night just yet. From wild parties to meeting dinosaurs there is something for everybody. In this article a non exhaustive list of things we thought interesting this week-end.

1) Indie Short Film Night

The exhibition of the newest selected works by Šimon Sýkora is freely linked to his Diploma thesis from 2019. It introduces chapters from recent paintings influenced by various places – the author’s stay in Taiwan, for instance. Šimon also develops psychological aspects of the works by presented set of videos that has been made based on the need for a satire of social attitudes and the search for new ways out. The author in the videos also turns back to his former multimedia studies.

4) Night of Fulfilled Wishes at Pilot Cinema: Dogs don’t wear pants

Valentine’s night of fulfilled wishes in Pilot Cinema. The premiere of the romantic sad-meat comedy “Dogs don’t wear pants” with the participation of the creators followed by an after party.

8) Kornél Kovács/SWE/ @swim

Kornél Kovács (Studio Barnhus) | We definitely wanted to hear Kornel Kovacs taking over swim when we were opening it last year. Unfortunately technical difficulties prevented that. But this year we’re setting everything right.

10) Soaked w/ Cera Khin, Arnii, Hyaen & Axe Wife + Salo Floor | F2

‘I play whatever the fuck I want’ – says Cera Khin, one of the most piercing diamonds of the rising generation of anything-goes selectors with an ear for lost hardcore rave gems, speedy acid and contemporary updates of EBM with winks at trance and other ecstatic forms of techno.

 

11) Roztocký Masopust 2020

Imprint of past times and breath of things to come. A mournfully merry masquerade parade comes to see her Queen-bride. She carries stories and voices in the landscape and mirrors in her ribbons and mirrors.

15) Hidden Typography / Monika Lochová

Painter Monika Lochová (* 1996 in Prague) has stayed in Taiwan, Azerbaijan, Jordan and Romania. She transformed her experiences into a sensual experience, from which a kind of world map, her own speech and her own typography are based. The main theme of the exhibition is the landscape, which turns into a mental space. The characteristic of the installation is the interconnection of various materials such as Japanese papers, sprays, aluminum foils, or the panel concept of the Asian culture inspired format.
