Schovat se pod rouškou tmy a dělat věci neviditelné * To hide under the drape of dark and do invisible things
*Honza Černá Krejcarová- furious poet and daughter of Jaromír Krejcar
The project was initiated by Abandonned Recreation (Martin Zajíček and Andrea Kalinová) and it took place during the Artfilm festival in 2014 and 2015. It was dedicated to one of the most prominent examples of modernist Slovakian architecture – LD Machnáč in Trenčianske Teplice. It was designed by Jaromír Krejcar in 1929 and built in 1932, and due to doubtful commercial interests it is nowadays in an utterly dilapidated condition.
Abandonned Recreation has been trying to signal this unfortunate situation for a few years now. That is why, in 2014, we decided to occupy and squat in the space of Machnac (where public is not allowed to enter) – to understand its architecture, its historical context and its contemporary meaning.
