Together with Filip Slivka, we’ve published the Czechia zine that was initially only supposed to map the bizarreness we saw around us daily, in a slightly mocking way. At that time, the new official weirdo name for our country, Czechia, was being approved and it seemed to fit our project nicely. In the end, we realized that we actually love all those, at first sight, ridiculous things because they bring a little life into the ruin and routine we are living.
“Late evening, on the first of May – The twilit May – the time of love. Meltingly called the turtle-dove, Where rich and sweet pinewoods lay. Whispered of love the mosses frail, The flowering tree as sweetly lied, The rose's fragrant sigh replied to love-songs of the nightingale." Editorial inspired by the poem “May” from Karel Hynek Mácha.
