Second time in Prague, second time I couldn't pass DOX. The architecture of the building itself, with the added beauty of a zeppelin on its roof, alone makes you crave for modern art. It's full of nooks and crannies, and that certainly influences how the art is presented and perceived. We were a bit unlucky, arriving at a day when there was only one of three exhibitions available, due to rebuilding of the other two, but also this time their exhibition(s) stilled my hunger for a trip into other worlds of thinking. If you enjoy modern or post-modern art in general, and enjoy a local touch and influence, DOX will probably be the right place for you, often including art and artists from Czech and surrounding countries. Don't miss out on enjoying a coffee on the terrace, sitting on oversized plastic sofas and looking at a sneaker Jesus on the wall.
Staff seems friendly and building itself is nicely designed. I was a bit disappointed with the exception, though. The theme is death, a very touching subject. One particular piece really touched me and one or two other made me raise an eyebrow, but the rest was just one giant Ed Hardy T-shirt. Maybe the next exhibition will be better.
