A Cardiac Arrest to the Conventional! is the subtitle to the interactive exhibit Heart of the Prague Quadrennial. This project, located in the Centre Hall of the Industrial Palace, is a creation of a space dedicated to the human senses. The space will function as, for example, an interactive bar for the sense of taste, a wall of memories for the sense of smell, a laboratory for the sense of hearing, a massage studio for the body and soul. Everything will be open to the spectators. The daily program will include presentations, workshops, discussions, seminars, and performances.
