It is summer 1962, and England is still a year away from huge social changes - Beatlemania, the sexual revolution and the Swinging Sixties. We first encounter Florence (Ronan) and Edward (Howle), a young couple in their early twenties, on their wedding day. Now on their honeymoon, they are dining in their room at a stuffy, sedate hotel near Chesil Beach in Dorset, where one of them makes a major decision that will utterly change both of their lives forever.

Adapted by Ian McEwan from his bestselling novel, the drama centers on a young couple of drastically different backgrounds in the summer of 1962. Following the pair through their idyllic courtship, this movie explores sex and the societal pressure that can accompany physical intimacy, leading to an awkward and fateful wedding night.

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.
