Prague Off the Map

Futura

Futura Centre for Contemporary Art, located in a seemingly recluse venue in Prague 5, is an ideal place to get a taste for Prague’s fascinating contemporary art scene. It is funded by grants, and contains works from both Czech and international contemporary artists. Since 2003 Futura has been putting on exhibits from the likes of Lawrence Weiner, Bas Jan Ader, Betrand Lavier, Carsten Nicolai, Mircea Cantor, and Hubert Duprat. Mediums range from paintings and drawings to digital or mixed media; if contemporary art is up your alley, you’ll be sure to find something that appeals to you here. Televisions with video productions play in various rooms of the gallery, with headphones providing a listening experience. The atmosphere of the gallery is quiet and almost eerie: it is up to you to open doors, find your way through the exhibits, and analyze each piece as you will. AND don’t forget to miss David Černý’s piece, Brownnosing, in the courtyard!
