Prague Crossroads

"The work of Václav Havel and his activities in the field of human rights have always combined activism of an intellectual with humanism of an artist," says National Theatre about its festival on the occasion of Havel's 80th birthday. Subtitled “Arts and politics, politics and art” it presents performances, films, discussions and other programs by mostly Czech and post-Soviet authors. The design with Havel’s signature heart is in analogy reminiscent of the author's typewriter aesthetic in Anticodes, his book of poems and calligrammes, but also of samizdat as the simplest and most effective form of information dissemination. It is updated by an up-to-date, ambiguous color, somewhere between warning orange and warm pink of kindness.
