We invite you to a music and dancing ceremony, led by the trio MAOK, MITSCH KOHN along with special guest SASCHA Cellist. This musical fusion met randomly at a summer festival in Europe. Although each of them is unique in improvisational work, together they create even greater musical dimension.

You will be guided through the musical experience in several waves. From the rhythmic dance, when you can just let your body flow and release any physical and mental tension, to the meditation-relaxation part, when you can enjoy your trip to the depths of your soul.

Describing beautiful music is like singing about colours, so we rather invite you to experience the music yourself.

Tickets: Until March 5th €25, at the door €30. More info: www.facebook.com.

Temporary exhibitions

DANUBIANA
Pasta Oner: The Brotherhood of Eternal Love
Robert Hromec: Falling Comet
Simona Čechová: Islands of Colours
SLOVAK NATIONAL GALLERY
Anna Daučíková. Work in Progress: 7 Situations
LV100. Ladislav Vychodil and the 20th Century Scene

TEMPORARY EXHIBITIONS IN DANUBIANA:
Pasta Oner: The Brotherhood of Eternal Love - The work of Pasta Oner presents an original, ironic commentary on contemporary popular culture. Pasta Oner’s traditional themes of obsession with money, sex, religion, luxury goods and the consumerist notions of beauty are translated into new contexts characterised by the technologisation of life, the increasing speed of information and the short attention-span aesthetics of today’s culture. It is into this world, of which Pasta – like all of us – is a part, that he brings his engaged art. His work shows both sides of hell and of ourselves. The interweaving of the concepts of good and bad and triviality and seriousness is the key to Pasta’s thought, which surprises us with the blatant delicacy of an endlessly extending arch, a somewhat pathetic Divine Comedy. Opening Hours: 10:00 A.M. – 6:00 P.M. Closed on Mondays, Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum, Bratislava-Čunovo, Vodné dielo. More info: www.danubiana.sk.
Robert Hromec: Falling Comet - Motifs related to Time Capsule and Falling Comet are the main interpretations of Robert Hromec’s exhibition at the Danubiana. Thus, it is only natural that the title Falling Comet arises from the artist’s current work, where his individual artistic expressions recording chaos versus cosmos are foremost. In these works, we can feel his search for human and artistic time-space. He finds and depicts it in unconventional techniques on aluminum plates, through the two-dimensional painting of active entries, which are engraved, and milled geometric elements in the form of specific structural surfaces or spatial reliefs. In this marvelous chaos and cosmic space, lines, circles and spirals encounter parts of human figures, arms and profiles of faces which are depicted in detail, blowups or multiplications of human silhouettes. Opening Hours: 10:00 A.M. – 6:00 P.M. Closed on Mondays, Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum, Bratislava-Čunovo, Vodné dielo. More info: www.danubiana.sk.
Simona Čechová: Islands of Colours - Simona’s professional combination and initial indecisiveness have a positive impact on her even today. Her work does not carry a clear and well-established style; she can transform it as she strives to truly understand the most suitable path to follow. She is an excellent listener and responsibly approaches every illustration assignment, communicating it flawlessly both internally and externally. The bipolarity of Simona’s work may catch the eye of spectators when looking at her broad portfolio. This is represented by the dual nature of her work – analogue and digital, each supported by its inherent poetics. Opening Hours: 10:00 A.M. – 6:00 P.M. Closed on Mondays, Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum, Bratislava-Čunovo, Vodné dielo. More info: www.danubiana.sk.

TEMPORARY EXHIBITION IN SLOVAK NATIONAL GALLERY
Anna Daučíková. Work in Progress: 7 Situations - This solo exhibition by Anna Daučíková (b. 1950 in Bratislava) presents her work as glass artist, painter, photographer, and performance and video artist. As the title implies, this is no retrospective exhibition looking back on her finished work. The challenge is to show a selection of her complete and preserved pieces in a mutual relationship and connection with pieces she is now developing, along with others that she has yet to rework, finish, or otherwise create during the exhibition's run. 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: www.sng.sk.
LV100. Ladislav Vychodil and the 20th Century Scene - In 2020, Slovak professional theater will celebrate the one hundredth anniversary of its founding, and in commemoration of this occasion the Slovak National Gallery is preparing an exhibition of professor Ladislav Vychodil (1920-2005), for whom this year will mark the one hundredth anniversary of his birth. His influence was crucial not only on the development of Slovak stage design of the second half of the 20th century, but also for the Academy of Performing Arts in Bratislava, where he was co-founder of the independent department of stage design and mentor for several generations of stage designers. Open: Monday: closed, Tuesday – Wednesday: 10.00 – 18.00, Thursday: 12.00 – 20.00, Friday – Sunday: 10.00 – 18.00, Esterházy’s Palace until July 5. More info: www.sng.sk.
