Did you hear from the elders about the amazing atmosphere of keying in 89’s? Or have you been yanking yourself? In the work of Pavel Soukal and Lukáš Matejka, you can take out the keys again and experience some of these extraordinary events. But you can’t do it alone, you’ll have to connect with other people. Exactly as in November 89. Your joint rumble will begin an interactive visual demolition of the wall projected in your city. The reward for visual demolition efforts will be to reveal unique photographs from the Velvet Revolution. Who knows, maybe you meet your parents there, or yourself thirty years ago.
The civic association TRAKT together with the Férová O2 Foundation and the Trnava Self-Governing Region prepared an audiovisual installation that will travel together with the exhibition to mark the 30th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution. Overall, the exhibition will be in seven cities within Trnava region.

How do the authors perceive November 89?
As creative artists and contemporary artists, we perceive the events of November 89 as a fusion of an active society that wanted to make a difference for all of us. This change was only possible because we, as a company, were able to connect, we were a collective hero who could not be broken on our way to freedom. Today, our society is polarized by various themes – groups – communities that often divide us out of mind. We want to show our interactive work how active and connecting people are today.
