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, preached the joining of different gods in a civil setting, and promoted personal civil legal home chapels and poly-shrines. And the upcoming exhibition, Temple Builders, is in the spirit of these doctrines. Shrines, chapels, and cult corners of various cooperative cults, built and created from ordinary things that surround us in everyday life and that are constantly thrown away. Rescued by the Holy Scrap units from garbage bins and containers, they not only get a new chance to continue their existence, but they often undergo a metamorphosis and are also given new meaning in a new context. There is no thing that cannot be elevated to an altar or transformed into a ritual object. There is no place where a shrine or temple could not be built.

Curators: Otto M. Urban, Leoš Válka
