All around Prague, you can find art by David Černý. The controversial artist displays his art in places all over the city so the public can view for free, and sometimes you will come across Černý’s art and not even realize it. Many of his pieces are startling, so be warned. You can take a tour of Černý’s public art, though you will probably end up coming across most of his pieces just by walking through Prague.
Yes, that is a fetus traveling through the drain-pipe…
“Piss” is interactive. If you text a message to the number next to the statue, the hips of the men will move as they spell out the message with their…pee.
I was in Prague when the middle finger was put up by Černý. It was a day just like any other day, except that there was a giant, purple finger in the Vltava River. Černý created the finger to protest political corruption and efforts made by the Communist Party to gain control in the upcoming elections (2013). The finger was aimed at Prague Castle.
Černý also founded MeetFactory, an art center located in Smíchov. The center hosts numerous concerts and art exhibits, and I saw STRFKR (origins: Portland, Oregon) perform while I was in Prague. It was very cool. The venue (an abandoned warehouse) is edgy and has a bar for drinks, though it is out of they way but worth the trek.
