2nd stage of the Lungs of Žižkov project
27 and 28 September always from 16:00 at PONEC (Husitská 899/24A, Prague 3)
Art – country – public space. Each, even the inhospitable corner, has its own identity. Žižkov is not considered an attractive district, yet it has a unique genius loci, which many artists have remarked on. It has great potential to become a creative district, and this is the idea that has led to the cooperation between the Landscape Festival and TANEC PRAHA.
Lungs of Žižkov – Second Breath follows up on an artistic experiment that took place in June, and in the last long weekend of September will present a rich program of artists from various genres, from dance to new circus, movement theatre to live music. Site-specific performances will take place between inventive installations on a three-kilometre route following in the footsteps of the Landscape Festival through urban green spaces. Let's help Žižkov take a second breath!

The technologicalization of nature is a phenomenon closely connected with the present time and, in addition to the increased efficiency of plant production, it is also negatively associated with the loss of the "natural" at the expense of the "technological". What happens if these elements are interconnected?
One of the ambitions of the Photosynthetic Landscape project is to present the use of microalgae as photosynthetic organisms in the context of the loss of greenery in the urban environment, its impact on the reduced quality of public space. The courtyard of the Nevan Contempo Gallery in close proximity to the traditional flora of the Paradise Garden Park and Rieger Gardens is in contrast to the technological greenery of the prototype Photosynthetic Landscape - a modular, organic system that pushes the boundaries of thinking about nature and technology in the context of environmentally oriented spatial installation.
The prototype is part of the research of the PhD. candidate MgA. Veronika Miškovičová and her team Anna Östlund, Vojtěch Kordovský and Adam Varga led by prof. ak. arch. Imrich Vaško and assistant MgA. Shota Tsikoliya, Ph.D., M.Sc. within the Studio of Architecture III at UMPRUM Prague.
