OBJECT:PRAHA II (2022)
OBJECT:PRAHA II (2022) is a documentary on the literary happenings and interdisciplinary performances of OBJECT:PARADISE, primairly in the expat neighborhood of Prague, Czech Republic: Źižkov.
Filmed entirely on VHS throughout 2021, community members gathered to create an audio experience of the collective’s usual events which were muted from the COVID-19 pandemic. This is manifested through our second studio album, OBJECT:PARADISE Vol. II.
The collective’s manifesto calls to make poetry readings lowbrow, punk rock, and accessible to a general audience--what do you think poetry is?

About OBJECT:PARADISE Vol. II
The album is composed of a diverse range of languages and sounds from all over the world and placed into one room. The album aims to capture the happenings and moments that exist naturally (and only) in the streets of Žižkov. Recorded in 2021, the collection aims to recreate the dialogues of noise that were muted by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The seven compositions–which span a variety of styles–were improvised by a collection of over 25 Prague-based artists who brought not only their own interpretations of sound and language, but of poetry and how it can be collectively manifested through the experience of an OBJECT:PARADISE happening.
