Galerie Laboratorio in collaboration with galerie m.odla presents
K o l a b o r a t o r i o  V o l. 2
pop-up exhibition
former underground spa – Bubenská 1

From 26 to 29 April 2012, the two underground floors of the former Electric Company building at Bubenská 1 will be open to the public. In the 1930s, these spaces were home to the municipal spa. The unique functionalist spaces, where company employees could relax in peat baths, enjoy water treatments and other body wraps, are today in a desolate state and closed to the public. For four days, the spa with its inimitable atmosphere will be transformed into a living gallery spanning a respectable 850 m2. Thirty artists have prepared site-specific installations specifically for this  project, inspired by this unique exhibition space.

On the day of the exhibition opening on 26 April, two guided tours at 7pm and at 8:30pm will take place as part of the open galleries event WE ARE OPEN – gallery evening in Prague 7. These tours will be led by Pavel Pláteník, a radio moderator for lonely, abandoned and unsuccessful souls, and actor Karel Krautgartner of the Příbram Theatre /the alter egos of Ondřej Cihlář and Petar Prokop of the VOSTO5 theatre ensemble/.
