When the “For a Decent Slovakia” protest march in Bratislava on Friday, March 9th is over, attendees can visit an exhibition of art works reflecting the current situation in society. It will take place in the courtyard of the house on Panská 13 connecting Panská Street with Hviezdoslavolo Square. It is an initiative by the animator Andrej Kolenčík, organiser of the White Night Zuzana Pacáková, graphic artist Juraj Ličko, Zuzana Jankovičová and Michaela Kučová, the Sme daily informed.

The exhibition called Reakcia, reaction or response in English, responds to what is happening in Slovak society after the murder of investigative journalist Ján Kuciak and his fiancée Martina Kušnírová.

“The artists express in their works feelings of solidarity, sadness, anger and zest for change as well as belief in democracy and justice,” the call reads. The event will be apolitical and free of charge.

A mosaic

Some days ago the initiators published on social networks a call inviting artists to respond to what is happening in Slovakia with their art. So far they have 170 pieces and new ones are still arriving. The organizers will divide them into thematic blocks to be screened by projectors on the walls. The result will be a mosaic.

Visitors will have the opportunity to see the exhibition for only three hours – from 19:00 until 22:00. The organisers are also considering whether to send the exhibition on a tour of Slovakia as well as making it a free digital gallery accessible via the internet.
