SCREENING IS CANCELLED DUE TO RAINY WEATHER.


In collaboration with Edison Filmhub, we bring you a screening of Pig as part of the DOX Summer Cinema

Iranian film directors are being brutally slaughtered, one after another, by an unknown serial killer. Yet Hasan Kasmai, who, like Jafar Panahi and others, is on a blacklist of the Islamist government, remains unscathed. Why is he, one of the country’s finest film-makers, being ignored by the mysterious assassin? The ambitious, slightly hysterical, frustrated and failing Hasan decides to follow the bloody trail. His life turns into a delirious trip, replete with nonsense, hilarious jinks and errors. Mani Haghighi’s Pig is haywire, autobiographical account of a society living in constant fear, presented with a cynical grin. His feature is a brassy political allegory, a boorish zany comedy, and a crooked guitar solo in the dungeon of an authoritarian regime.

Iran, 2018, 104 min
Language: FA, TR, EN
Directed by: Mani Haghighi
Genre: crimi
Age rating: 15+

KAFKAesque

The exhibition KAFKAesque focuses on reflections on Kafka’s work and poetics in contemporary visual art offering not a historical perspective of his work, but a view that reflects our present-day situation with all its complexities and ambiguities.


It Is a Painful Thing to Be Alone: We Are But One

It Is a Painful Thing to Be Alone: We Are But One is the first major posthumous presentation in Europe of the work of artist, musician, writer, occultist and cultural engineer, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge (1950-2020).


Point of View

The world is a place that originates and exists largely in our imaginations. How do we imagine a place for art? And what should it look like for learning? The point of view is a space of uncertainty but also of new experience; a space that shows potential of stereotypes, fear, making mistakes, and changing mind-sets.


Industrial Culture and the figure of Genesis P-Orridge

This special evening will introduce the figure of Genesise P-Orridge in more detail through a documentary screening followed by a discussion with cultural historians Nicolas Ballet and Carl Abrahamsson.


Shelter

Contemporary music performed by the BERG Orchestra – new season opening! Czech premiere of a monumental work Shelter by three composers and founders of the New York’s legendary music collective Bang on a Can.


6 Premieres

Six new works by four renowned composers – Roland Dahinden, Didrik Ingvaldsen, Jan Dobiáš, and Dag Magnus Narvesen – will be performed in one night. There will be not only internationally renowned soloists, but also larger ensembles – the original and variable PMP Orchestra, the PMP Ensemble, and Dust in the Groove.


Beata Hlavenková & Kristina Barta

In the DOX+ hall, SOČR will present a double concert by singer and pianist Beata Hlavenková and jazz pianist Kristina Barta. The premiere will feature new compositions as well as music inspired by poetry.


Klangforum Wien I.

For the third time, the DOX Centre for Contemporary Art will be the venue for Prague Offspring, a Prague Spring Festival concert format dedicated to the latest in contemporary music. This will be last time that Klangforum Wien will be appearing in the role of ensemble-in-residence.


Klangforum Wien II.

The second evening of the Prague Offspring series presents premieres of five new works by Czech and Slovak composers written for Klangforum Wien, commemorates the Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho, and climaxes with the Czech premiere of Nether, a dazzling work by the composer-in-residence Rebecca Saunders.


Commander

The unique production combines a physical theatre performance with live music and a film starring child actors of Farm in the Cave studio to communicate an urgent, yet widely overlooked, topic – the online radicalisation of youth.
