Our man in Prague, Chris Martin (no, not that one) has given us an amazing list of cool things to do in the Czech capital in Febuary. Have a look at what's happening!
Friday 10th February – Tuesday 21st February
Continues with Czech old traditions, allegorical festivities, whose beginnings dates back to medieval times, and whose annually iterate renowned celebrations proceeded up to the recent past. Project Bohemian Carnevale is a rebirth of this phenomenon celebrating human joy and gregariousness. The Culmination of the programme Bohemian Carnevale is going to take place in Prague and proceeds on public open space, in pala-ces, museums, galleries, theatres, and schools, but also in restaurants, shops, and workshops...
If contemporary art’s your bag DOX (Prague 7’s phenomenal art gallery) has a new exhibition running “Middle East Europe” The exhibition Middle East Europe presents works of European artists who are responding to the Middle Eastern conflict in direct confrontation with the works of their Palestinian and Israeli counterparts. At the same time, the project demonstrates a historical as well as present interconnection between Europe and the Middle East. Perfect pre or post a stroll through Prague famous Jewish quarter. This is on throughout February.
CUBE / WHITE IS WHEN / VIKTOR TAKÁČ , 1. – 18. February 2012 Artist: Viktor Takáč (CZ), Opening January 1st, 2012 at 7pm, Curator: Dušan ZahoranskýThis young artist is a careful analyst of film. His videos sometimes arise in response to accidentally-found bizarre places and situations, and sometimes they are planned precisely and composed. Takáč painstakingly analyzes and places scenes – box after box – into new films. Just like a detective searching for causes, Victor is able to observe seemingly secondary details, such as inert objects and beings, actions falling from the composition, and extremely long or short time intervals. This video-experimenter is currently returning from trips to far away Australia to offer his fans a glimpse into the endlessly changing landscape on the other side of the globe.

Emika (Ninja Tune / UK), Stroon (SK) 24. February 2012 20:30. Her music is dark, twisted with trembling rhythms. Emika was born in Britain with Czech heritage. After classical music education, she fell right into the dnb-turned-dubstep scene in Bristol. Living in Berlin at the moment, she fully immersed into own production with several EPs on the Ninja Tune imprint, followed by her debut “Emika” last year. Trademarked by layering samples and her haunting vocal, it makes Emika one of upcoming female producers to watch.Opening for Emika will be Stroon, aka Dalibor Kocian from Slovakia who combines beats and samples with ease into a dark, atmospheric post-dubstep collage.
Opeth (SWE) 25. February 2012 19:00 Swedish heavy-metal legend.
