Bratislava-based author, singer and artist Boris Ondreicka grew up being a punker who resisted the totalitarian tendencies in former Czechoslovakia. Today, he is an active curator and artist himself – his work has been shown in some of the art meccas of the world, including New York, Amsterdam, and Vienna. Experimenting with both text and the media that capture it, Ondreicka concentrates on the point where writing and art intertwine, mending and twisting his words in ways that provide them with new and unexpected meanings. Similarly, his readings turn into artistic performances. We are very pleased to announce that Boris Ondreicka will be our first act at the opening night of the PMF.
