Performance by Jakub Šimčík

Memories of emigration, propaganda films, family photos and archive documents – material collected over seven years. Czech visual artist Jakub Šimčík will present his art video in Hectolitre on 29 November at 8pm.

Hectolitre is a venue under development dedicated to artists who wish to delve deeper into their projects, experiment with transdisciplinarity and connect their art form to the neighborhood.

The research into the migration history of his family led Jakub Šimčík into examining the political background of his own biography in the archives of the security services of former Czechoslovakia. The lecture-performance presents all the material collected throughout seven years of work: propaganda films, documents and photographs produced by the state security as well as his own video art.

Jakub Šimčík (*1984) comes from Ostrava, but since his childhood he has been living abroad. He studied photography and intermedia arts in Leipzig, Glasgow and photojournalism in Sweden. Video became for him the main artistic medium focusing various aspects of emigration.


Talk and performance will be held in English.

Free entry. More information.
