A nič nebude počuť. Aftermovie Tomáša Prištiaka.

We wish Milan Adamčiak’s legacy will continue to live beyond monographs and galleries. His work was created on the periphery – artistic as well as geographical and social in his last couple of years. The local environment shaped him, it is here he can be best understood and followed up upon. At JAMA, we commemorated Milan Adamčiak’s 73rd birthday in the places where he felt most at home in his latter years, and this way we try to continue Adamčiak’s legacy.

(exhibition opening, accompanying program of the festival)

During September, Juraj Gábor created an installation by the Studnička at Červená studňa, within the Trojica AIR residence, which creates a natural transitional situation. As is the case in his previous projects, he expects active input – the participation of the viewer. We will bring the project to life with a guided walk with the author from the historic center of Banská Štiavnica to its outskirts. Those who are interested should meet in front of the Trojičný stĺp (Trinity Column) on the Námestie Svätej Trojice (St. Trinity Square) at 1 p.m.
