Prague Microfestival presents literature and art

The three-day festival will have dozens of local and international artists and authors

The annual Prague Microfestival takes place for the 11th time. It will be held in two new Prague cultural clubs: Žižkostel on April 26–27 and in Punctum on April 28. Both venues are in Žižkov.

The festival combines contemporary literature with art, film and performance. It welcomes well-established as well as emerging musicians, performers and artists.

This year, authors and artists come from Australia, Chile, Czech Republic, Croatia, Germany, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland and Britain.

The program is multilingual with performances not only in their original language, but also in Czech and English, giving Czech authors the opportunity to perform alongside international artists and writers.

The lineup includes Marie Šťastná (ČR), Carl-Christian Elze (Germay), Marko Pogačar (Croatia), Radovan Potočár (Slovakia), Tomás Cohen (Chile), Athena Farrokhzad (Sweden), Tibor Hrs Pandur (Slovenia), Anamaria Pravicencu (Romania), Ondřej Macl (ČR) and others.

There will also be a book market with several independent Prague publishers, and a micro-show to showcase the work of several Prague artists. Each of the three micro-festival evenings will end with at least one dance performance and / or musical number.

As it has become a tradition, the festival will also host an international critical colloquium. This year it is dedicated to “Experiment and Resistance.” This will begin with a mini-festival of subversive documentary films and feature a number of leading international and local theorists such as Louis Armand, Jana Horáková, Tomáš Javůrek, Daniel DC Miller, Nina Power, Barbora Trnková and others.

The festival is intended to be a friendly and open environment for human encounters, interaction and discovery.

Žižkostel is located at nám. Barikád 1520/1, and in Punctum is at Krásova 803/27. The festival program starts at 5 pm every day and lasts until late at night.
