A nič nebude počuť. Aftermovie Tomáša Prištiaka.

JAMA – 75th Year of Milan Adamčiak captured the second pandemic autumn in terms of its date and also its content: It was marked by uncertainty about the future, artistic statements touching on climateand social distress, but also on the search for utopian futures and positive endings. As part of the 3rd edition of JAMA a collective international exhibition Lost Human took place in the curatorial concept of Lucia G. Stach. The exibition presented the works of 40 artists from different countries and generations and offered a substantial accompanying program of interventions and performances to the JAMA event. The whole JAMA event took place in the form of a collective wandering through the hills surrounding Banská Štiavnica, and its unifying principle was the graphic score by Fero Király and Eva Vozárová, on the basis of which the third edition of JAMA can be "enacted" according to the authors' instructions, anywhere and at any time.
