In Jersey City, an African American hit man follows "Hagakure: The Way of the Samurai." He lives alone, in simplicity with homing pigeons for company, calling himself Ghost Dog. His master, who saved his life eight years ago, is part of the local mob. When the boss' daughter witnesses one of Ghost Dog's hits, he becomes expendable. The first victims are his birds, and in response, Ghost Dog goes right at his attackers but does not want to harm his master or the young woman. On occasion, he talks with his best friend, a French-speaking Haitian who sells ice cream in the park, and with a child with whom he discusses books. Can he stay true to his code? And if he does, what is his fate?

Temple Builders

In the exhibition Temple Builders, the Peerless Cooperative of the Holy Nurture (JSD) will present the mainly cult and ritual side of its activities. Mister Miláček, the Young Saint, the cause and reason for the JSD, chaotic of the universe, has not only united the ununitable in unlimited syncretism, but also created countless new churches and religions.


Lost in...

The exhibition will present a cross-section of Vladimír Doležal's work. His painting and drawing work is combined with his experience as a restorer. A deep understanding of the meaning of the figurative image, i.e. the representation of archetypal phenomena of human existence, is decisive for Doležal's art.


Funny Games

The human body as the alpha and omega of the image. The exhibition Funny Games presents the work of the Moldovan painter, the essential figure painter Alexander Tinei. His individual works, both monumental and small formats, are fragments of a magnificent mosaic of human life.


Tmání (Darkening)

What goes on in the head of a young person who is experiencing depression? And is there a way to get out of these states? That's the story behind the autobiographical animated film Darkness, which uses virtual reality to depict authentic experiences.


#Datamaze: Hybrid Condition

Digital and algorithmic technologies have become a mundane, yet also nearly invisible part of our everyday existence. The next chapter of the #Datamaze exhibition explores hybridized realities, where physical and generated worlds merge into a flow of all-consuming and sometimes numbing, puzzling experiences.


The Pain of Others

How is it possible to mediate unimaginable suffering to those who have not experienced it themselves? The Pain of Others exhibition project aims to reflect on art’s ability to speak of war, violence, and conflict, and, more importantly, on our (in)ability to relate through art to the horrors of war and the pain of those affected by it.


Power(less) catalogue launch

The catalogue presents a look back at the works from the exhibition project of the same name and texts on the themes of illness and powerlessness. Don't miss the meeting with the exhibition curators, artists, and the creators of the book.
