Provakator Issue #25

Provakator Magazine February/March Issue now out!

Investigating contrast 

What do Danish film directors and Danish pastries have in common? How about New Prague, Nebraska and Prague, CZ? What does it mean that 2008 is a leap year? In issue 25 of we answer these questions and more. You know what contrast is. The question is, how does contrast affect you? 

This issue investigates contrasts in several areas of life: social, artistic, geographic, political and personal. The February/ March issue presents and explores contrasts in Prague and worldwide, through issues both personal and universal.
