PHOTOGALLERY

The jp.co.de installation at Rude Pravo was an interactive project including photos that become a film that becomes theatre, taking the plot of the jp.co.de movie as an initial point and expanding it, adapting it to other dimensions.

[jp.co.de the photos] The installation started with a photo exhibition that explores the relations between middle class parents and their children. Sometimes the psychological abuse is not apparent even to the young victims themselves: they take it as inherent part of living in the micro-community, the family that one has not chosen in the first place.

[jp.co.de the film] The second part of the installation was a movie about Balázs, an eighteen-year-old who runs away from home to start an independent existence. First he must shed his surroundings that have served as scenography for his life in order to create new ties. The film merges fiction and documentary: the movie’s creators appear in it.

[jp.co.de the experiment] The third part of the installation allowed audience a view into experiment in which group of young people, volunteers from around the world exclusively gathered for the duration of the Prague Quadrennial. Together with Krétakör the volunteers joined in creativity experiments inside the former Rudé Právó building, bringing together a variety of genres following the story of the film.

Jp.co.de is the first part of Crisis a trilogy recounting the story of a three-member family. It aims to express the desire for a society in which the concepts of individual drive and responsibility exist in their own right, in which there is an organic connection to family, generations, nature, colleagues, that is, a society composed of individuals who are capable of planning their lives in advance – a society dominated by civic order. This performance project is realized, following a year of preparation, in three countries over roughly half a year.

The second part of the trilogy Ungrateful Bastards took place at Munich Opera Festival in July 2011, and the third part The Priestess in Trafo House of Contemporary Arts, Budapest in October 2011.
