Since October 2014, the diverse cultural space with the mildly provocative name PRAHA has been run by the Brno-based association 4AM Forum for Architecture and Media in collaboration with the Moravian Gallery in Brno. Offering a unique dramaturgy based around principles of openness, accessibility, creative mobility and freedom of expression, 4 AM have drawn in a wide community of affiliated artists, theoreticians, audiences and supporters. Through discussions, international workshops, lectures, exhibitions and events in the public space, the collective formulates and critically explores current social questions and problems related to architecture, urbanism, the city space, contemporary art and new media.
PRAHA is a non-smoking café and bar with a public library containing expert publications and periodicals on contemporary architecture, design and art. As a lecture and exhibition space, it has become a hub for discussions and theory, artistic interventions, workshops, happenings, audiovisual projects and symposia. The space also organizes concerts of electronic, improvised and contemporary classical music, as well as original and experimental theater. The 4AM platform has produced numerous projects which have become an important part of the cultural scene in Brno and have also had international impact.
