A gorgeous selection of works from the Olomouc photographer Jaroslav Vávra (1920-1981), who was a member of the significant group of photographers DOFO (1958-1975). Vávra played an important role in the history of Czech photography of the second half of the 20th century, his photographs clearly demonstrate that in the 1960's he was among the prominent representatives and pioneers of nude photography in the country, along with Zden?k Virt and Miroslav Stibor.

Was this what Lionel Ritchie meant? Oh, what a feeling... to be dangling/made of cement from the ceiling? You have to really say that quick to make it work. Inside the EBC office in central Prague, Czech artist Michal Trpák, created an installation of cement figures dangling from the ceiling in a piece called Slight Uncertainty. Is the uncertainty that they will fall? Stunning, in a very Kafka-esque sort of mundane bizarreness.

Not always the biggest "guns are so cool" type site, but this was in our inbox this morning: David Cerny's Guns installation in Prague from this past summer. The pieces are suspended by wires in the courtyard of the Artbanka Museum of Young Art, and the fact that the guns are all inevitably aimed at each other is a good touch by Cerny.
