Daydreaming Nations

Culture marathon in BOZAR will remind of the crucial moments of 1918 in Central and Eastern Europe starting on 4 February by “Daydreaming Nations”.

The upcoming year features the centennial of 1918, the turning point in the European history. What impact does the perception of the former events have on contemporary Europe? At this occasion, BOZAR is revisiting this largely unknown page of European history throughout the multidisciplinary program called “1918: European Dreams of Modernity”. Program includes cultural events such as dance performances, discussion panels, concerts and expositions. BOZAR will welcome representatives from Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and Finland.

“Daydreaming Nations” is the starting event on February 4th presenting 11 pairs of artists and intellectuals from each country concerned, which will discourse on this topic by expressing their point of view at 1918.  The open live discussions with the speakers will follow each panel of presentations. BOZAR will open Twitter discussion too. The block with Czech representatives will begin at 16:00.

An award-winning Czech writer David Zábranský will be together with Pavlína Kvapilová, a publicist and author of project Elegant Czechs representing Czech Republic at the stage.

David Zábranský, as the author is dealing with the topics of modern Czech history. His novel Martin Juhás aka Czechoslovakia, which refers to many story lines on the background of the interwar years, has met with a great acclaim. He reflects the social changes of this period of time throughout the stories of everyday life, politics and dares to talk about the taboos.

The former editor of Czech radio in Brussels, Pavlína Kvapilová reflects her interest in this historical period slightly different way. She has come up with an online and offline project called Elegant Czech whose aim is to remind of and spread the Czech Elegancy which has been fading out lately.
