Build and Pamper the Community
Interview with Pavlína Kalandrová 8jinak!
Apparently, things started off dismal and grey. The main motives for the 8jinak! association came about from the controversial construction of a new town hall at Palmovka, the fates of the constructivist monument Palác Svět and the Libeň bridge, and the overall urbanist development planning in Prague’s 8th District. But the association eventually started enjoying the work they were doing on behalf of the neighborhood. They have organized exhibitions, screenings, workshops and open-air concerts for their fellow citizens, and have also developed an experimental film program that is community-oriented and locally inspired. By collecting and digitalizing historical analog films, they are working towards preserving the visual memory of Prague 8. In this interview, we speak with Pavlína Kalandrová, a member of the 8jinak! association.

Working for a Smaller Community Makes a Lot of Sense
Interview with Jonathan Hudec, Martin Herold and Jiří Dalecký St. Havel Gallery, Mladá Boleslav
The St. Havel Gallery in Mladá Boleslav had its first exhibition in 2017 as part of the Noc Kostelů (Night of Churches). The initial impulse came from the availability of an unused cultural space which would be independent from the city. The motivation was to introduce a distinct alternative to the operation of the city’s cultural centers. This interview took place on 28 January, 2020 with Jonatan Hudec, Martin Herold and Jiří Dalecký who run the St. Havel Gallery.
