European Capitals of CultureΠοιειν Και Πραττειν - create and do

A cultural path through the 2014 program

An interesting way to introduce the program to be realized in 2014.

Sat 3 Aug - Sun 11 Aug 2013
A taste of 2014


The Cultural path will be shown at Stora Nolia

Umeå2014 can be found in exhibition hall number 4 at booth numbers 510:01 – 510:56 of the Stora Nolia Fair 2013.

The idea reminds what artists did after the Prague Spring was crushed by tanks of the Warszawa pact in August 1968. Since everything was forbidden and memory nearly erased completely as to what had led up to this Prague Spring, including the Kafka Writers Congress, a structure was created in a park, so that when people would walk through it, they would be reminded of historical moments since 1945. It was done in such a subtle way that it became a subversive art to evade the new censorship.
