VLAK is an international curatorial project with a broad focus on contemporary poetics, art, film, philosophy, music, science, design, politics, performance, ecology, and new media.
Our global-local environment is defined by intersections, hybrids, transversals: realities that are contested, interactual and always in the process of taking new forms.
VLAK represents a desire to extend our understanding about what is possible; to pose questions about the prevailing attitude of norms; to explore the ramifications of contemporary culture and attempt new critical and creative methods.
VLAK stands for the drive to experiment, to synthesise, to extend—holding to the principle that a vital culture is always experimental and thus always “at a crossroads.”
*VLAK Magazine was founded in 2010 as part of a renewal of interest in the post-revolutionary Prague renaissance and a strongly re-emerging cosmopolitan culture in Central Europe and a committed internationalism. With the publication of its fifth issue, VLAK Magazine enters a new phase of existence, pursuing its print-publication mission by other and diverse means.
