A nič nebude počuť. Aftermovie Tomáša Prištiaka.

The second – originally unplanned – edition of JAMA took place at the height of the covid season in the fall of 2020. Due to pandemic measures, it was conducted online only. The site-specific program was streamed from Parter BSC, Banská Štiavnica and the surrounding forests and meadows in the presence of artists, but without the participation of a live audience.

13.00Svätopluk Mikyta – Fungi Cyani

(Banská Štiavnica)


Mushroom picking is an inherent part of M.A.’s movement in the land. The meditative silence of walking through the forest is interrupted by the joyful shouts of successful mushroom pickers. The random movement and random finding of a random amount and types of mushrooms is the starting point for a visual composition on paper, which will be the result of a solo performance by the artist Svätopluk Mikyta. We are streaming directly from the forest.

Sobota 24. 10.

14.30Unintentional wandering with M.A.

(Banská Štiavnica – Banská Belá)


Traveling through the countryside in the footsteps of M.A., direction: Banská Belá. This time you can watch it from the comfort of your home and watch us on the hills with dry feet. To increase the quality of the experience, we recommend wearing a raincoat and entering the shower in it / putting on sunglasses and going out on the balcony in them* + serving tea with rum (at least you, as we can’t).
