Provokátor Mapazine Issue 23

This issue, we at Provokátor have donned black and stared out from under a hood to find out the meaning behind ‘scary’. Released on October 22, the double October/November issue presents the mind-probing issues of real life events, myths, Dave Vanians gothic air, and one woman’s connection to The Devil’s Bible.

Prying into the various deviations of this month’s theme of ‘scary’— and as pseudo-authorities on the matter, we know what is scary—Provokátor features the following:
The Devil’s Codex by Sezin Rajandran
Godfather of Goth, interview with Dave Vanian by Marika M. Ley
Art & Film Festival Coverage by Kathryn Hume
By Golly, it’s the Golem by Jessi Tabalba
Don’t worry, everything’s cookin’ by Catherine Park
Five Minutes Till the End of Human Existence, the Doomsday Clock by Peter Utgaard
The Scary Kit by Kenn Mayfield
CPR for TPR by Stephen Delbos
No More Children, transcribed from A Trial of a Child Denied by Dana Wilson
Fear in the Heart of Europe, sketches from the civil war in Bosnia by Milana Milosevic
Bordercrossings Berlin by Fiona Mizani
Tarot Card: To the Depths! by Cat Deleon
Safe and Sound, a review of Clare Wigfall’s new book by Wendy Wrangham

#23 Erratic Errata
Pprovokator – Ppague Events & Mapazine
We never make stupid mistakes. Only very, very clever ones.
(appropriated from ~John Peel)
To those of you with the sharp eye and comprehension of critique: we dare you to find more than the following erroneous information:
MAP – Most all locations indicated with numbers and pointers are ‘round about where the location is, however the arrow may not point to the actual street address- for that please look at advert or key.
KEY corrections:
Batalion – Rijna 3, P1
Hush - Lublánska 39, P2
Maison Mere- may have been a figment of our imaginations’
Vobejvák / Living Room –Štítného 8, P3
EVENT Changes:
Rock this Town – is NOT at Abaton, it is at Rock Café
Check website Event Calendar for more vague notions as to what is happening and where it might be.
