Unabashed optimism is an integral part of our constant effort to cultivate our immediate environment. We create gardens on our balconies, take care of even the smallest free space in front of our homes and even put up beehives on our rooftops. We try to create our own perfect world, while fighting against the pressure that overpopulation imposes on our resources, balancing between the positives and negatives of this incredible, yet harmful, consumer life. We are always chasing after happiness and looking for new ways to cultivate our own bodies and souls which brings us to Voltaire’s Candide and his famous yet troubling phrase ‘il faut cultiver notre jardin’. Is it satire? is he saying we should focus on the individual as this is all that we can ultimately do? or does focusing on the individual bring about gradual improvements in society at large? Where and how do we find a balance?

 

So if you are in the hood this summer, you are cordially invited to our fourth annual
Neighbourhood Boogie Woogie. Performance, installation and exhibition tours are spread out over two weeks starting on Saturday 14th July.

Jan Vítek & Tereza Havlovicová, curators
