SPAM KAREL GOTT PRAGER (2009)
The audio-visual composition is interwoven with the theme of the life and work of the greatest and the most controversial Czech architect of the second half of the 20th century. Up to the present day, Karel Prager (1923–2001) has been often rejected by the general public and a number of artists. Both before and after the Velvet Revolution, he was referred to as a pro communist, pro-system, insensitive and radical author.
The SPAM – Karel Gott Prager project co-authored by the trio Vladimir 518 (PSH, Bigg Boss), David Vrbik (®22)and Ondrej Andera (WWW) is a free formation which breaks down clichés unjustly built up around the personality of K. P. and instead viewing his work and legacy from a new angle.
