The exhibition Českoland, invented by graphic designer and satirist Tomáš Břínek, also known under pseudonym TMBK, is reopening in the underground of Hotel Pyramida in Prague after a 2-month break.
Visitors can expect to see Andrej Babiš in a jail cell, listen to fortunes told by oracle Jolanda, or experience the iconic “bába pod kořenem” incident first-hand. The exhibition will be open to the public until the 31st of December.
Preparation for the exhibition began in winter of last year when the internet’s comedy legend who goes by the pseudonym TMBK launched a fundraiser for its realization on Hithit.cz site, where he managed to raise almost 1.5 million CZK.
The motto of the fundraising is “The more we raise, the nicer a prison we build for Andrej.” Not only did they fulfill every last word of this promise, but they also managed to create a number of other bizarre installations of the widest variety.
“Look out for statues, reliefs, moving figurines, collages, videos, holograms, and naive silliness. Its featured personalities, including Zeman, could be both offended and flattered. It’s a big deal,” an enthusiastic TMBK describes.
The exhibition is taking place in the underground spaces of the Orea Hotel Pyramida in Strahov.
“We chose this place due to its widespread use. Basically, we were able to transform the entire space to fit our vision exactly. We made use of both the large basement space and the staircase located in the hotel,” says graphic designer Tomáš Břínek.
“The exhibition was met with positive responses for the most part. People are in need of a good laugh despite it being hidden by a face mask. The president has yet to pay us a visit,” stated TMBK.
Českoland will be open 7 days a week with weekday hours starting at 14:00 and ending at 21:00, and weekends starting at noon and ending at 21:00.
Tickets are available for presale here or on location at the cash desk for 299 CZK.
