Build and Pamper the Community
Interview with Pavlína Kalandrová
Apparently, things started off dismal and grey. The main motives for the 8jinak! association came from the controversial construction of the new town hall at Palmovka, the fate of the constructivist monument Palác Svět and Libeň bridge, and the overall urbanist development of Prague 8. But the association eventually started enjoying the work they were doing for this neighborhood. They have been organizing exhibitions, screenings, workshops and open-air concerts for their fellow citizens, and have been developing an experimental film program that is community-oriented and locally inspired. By collecting and digitalizing historical analog films, they are working towards preserving the visual memory of Prague 8. We spoke with Pavlína Kalandrová, a member of the 8jinak! association.
