The ‘Poetry Periscope’ is a sound installation produced in partnership with Czech-based Piána na ulici, that projects 30 poems from 30 different European countries through a yellow periscope. The Periscope is originally a Czech idea and has made its way now around the world, bringing people closer to Czech literature.
2016 is looking great for Czech companies abroad, and with the help of the Commercial and Economics section of the Czech Republic Embassy in London, it has become easier for them to expand into UK territory.
The remaining months of the year will see a focus on Czech visual arts and performances in London. Abstract art will be one of the key elements in the artistic industry. It will be Samuel Paučo, abstract artist of Slovak origin but Czech training and collaboration, who will be showcasing his work at the Start Art Fair in Saatchi Gallery London.
The London Czech Centre has made a point of showcasing the world-class architecture that brews in their country by putting together exhibitions of the best Czech designs and architecture to promote its culture in the UK.
