Provokátor Magazine Issue 27 May/June 2008
Provokátor Magazine's One-Two Black & Blue Culture Knockout!!!
8 May 2008, Prague
European Dream/Evropsky Sen
When we began this mission of a mapazine in 2005, our stated drive was
"A community-produced magazine reflecting the global village proportions of urban areas with a focus on Prague and Berlin; supporting creative interaction and community locally and worldwide, blurring the borders of genre and media."
In particular, we wanted to
concentrate on: "Smudging the borders of nationality and language by translation and/or summary, as well as universal imagery."
Several European borders came down this year, thus redefining the
realm of Europe. These changes brought a new sense of confusion and
bewilderment as to where we all belong in the undivided Europe.
Evropský Sen "Culture Knockout" 15-17.05.2008
As if the mapazine weren't enough Provokator.org is also bringing the
people of Prague Evropský Sen "Culture Knockout" a cross-cultural
festival of music, simultaneously translated literary readings in
English, German and Czech, as well as interactive visual art. Evropsky
Sen blurs the borders of genre, language and culture and represents a
new conception of Europe: unified, all-inclusive and artistic. What's
your European Dream?
In conjunction with the Evopsky Sen festival this month's issue
further investigates the idea of a united Europe and the European
Dream. Covering issues from Schengen regulations and opinions to
reasons and means of staying in the EU and advice on the trip wires
you have to vault to stay in Europa. As well as discussing some of
Europe's populous whom often escape mention.
Drifting into the European unconscious, Provokator 27 features the following:
