The Thought

Theatre Lab, Svoradova 4 (Theatre Faculty building of VŠMU), Wednesday, April 17, 19:00

“Dear friend, I’ve been in a psychiatric institution for almost a year now. It’s nice here. I go for walks, I read, even theatre performances take place here once a month. A production of The Thought by Leonid Andreyev will be performed by VŠMU students next. If you have time, definitely come! I send you my greetings, Anton I. Kerzhenev.“

The whole world is one big mess. The law of attraction does not apply to it, it does not have a top, nor a bottom, and everything is subject only to whimpering and coincidence.

Nothing is possible. Everything is possible. The performance The Thought by Leonid Andreyev’s gives a view of relativism and pluralism of opinions which can all be equally true. It also reveals the power of argumentation. Your life will not be the same ...You will never be alone again! Do not be afraid to listen to your inner voice!

Length: 1 hour. Performance with English subtitles. Admission: €3. Reservations: +421 903 796 949 or More info:

Temporary exhibitions

From the Academy to Nature. Forms of Landscape Painting in Central Europe 1860–1890

Oto Bachorík: Monuments - Oto Bachorík is one of the most famous artists of the middle generation. A sculptor with a unique sense for matter, he can bring stone, metal and wood to life and approach each of these materials with respect as well as the determination of a conqueror. In his monuments, as well as in his chamber sculptures, he combines various structures, alternating shiny smooth surfaces with rough and grainy ones, and large robust forms with fine elaborated details. He subdues light and masters time, space and matter. From the very beginning, his sculptures have resonated a tantalizing contrast of the expressive and the lyrical, the real and the abstract. Attempts to define his artistic language frequently lead to limitations in signs deprived of details and even archetypes. Open: 10:00 A.M. – 6:00 P.M until April 22. Closed on Mondays, Bratislava-Čunovo, Vodné dielo. More info:
EL LISSITZKY & ER SIKORA - The main intent of the double-exhibition metaphorically entitled El Lissitzky & eR Sikora is to retrieve and update the thoughts, ethos and artistic legacy of the Russian revolutionary avant-garde. The Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven, Netherlands, owner of an unprecedented collection of works of El Lissitzky, and the Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum in Bratislava-Čunovo have collaborated on an ambitious and unique project which combines – over time and space – two figures, two oeuvres, two visual and ideological worlds: the world famous master of the 20th century avant-garde, Constructivism and Suprematism, Lazar/El Lissitzky (1890 – 1941) and conceptualist Rudolf Sikora (1946), one of the major representatives of Slovak and Central European avant-garde. Open: 10:00 A.M. – 6:00 P.M. until June 30. Closed on Mondays, Bratislava-Čunovo, Vodné dielo. More info:
From the Academy to Nature. Forms of Landscape Painting in Central Europe 1860–1890 - This exhibition, organized jointly by the Slovak National Gallery and the Gallery of West Bohemia in Pilsen, is among the first efforts concentrating on the work by art personalities who moved between the Danube Monarchy and the visual art centres of that time, responding to the attraction of the plein-air landscape. Open: Monday: closed, Tuesday – Wednesday: 10.00 – 18.00, Thursday: 12.00 – 20.00, Friday – Sunday: 10.00 – 18.00, Esterházy’s Palace. More info:
