Earth Day with Signal Festival

21. 4. 2021 → Signal 2021

We are returning to the public space of Prague! Earth Day, photos from NASA aka the Italian studio Accurat and their installation The Room of Change at the Holešovice Exhibition Grounds.

It has been more than a year since our country was hit by a global pandemic. It has also been more than half a year since the 8th year of the Signal Festival was canceled. But we’re back! We are celebrating Earth Day in style. We are presenting the The Room of Change installation by the Italian studio Accurat at the Holešovice Exhibition Grounds. We have updated the work, which was originally created for the Italian Triennale Milano, with the support of the Italian Cultural Institute in Prague, so that it can be exhibited in a public space on the occasion of Earth Day. With the installation, we follow up on a series of burning environmental topics, which we have already prepared for 2020, and we intend to continue with them. But Plan B did not work out. We need a more radical solution, thus we activate Plan C – Plan Covid. We’ll tell you more soon.

The installation, which you will find at the Holešovice Exhibition Grounds – on Brussels road by the area with a new playground (exactly here), will be accessible every day from 12:00 to 24:00, from 22 April to 28 April. We are very happy to be back on the streets, in this case even in the park. We will soon tell you more about what we are planning for this year’s big Signal Festival in autumn.

The Room of Change installation tracks changes on planet Earth. First, by projecting images from NASA’s archives that record the planet’s changes over the past 20 years, and second, through a data tapestry illustrating the change in our environment over the past few centuries.

You can find more about the installation here.
