Popis epizódy
Culture Minister dismissed Slovak National Theatre Director General Matej Drlicka over his statement in English in Budapest. Several members of his team ended their terms too. Matej Drlicka spoke to RSI about making redundant several members of the Opera ensemble whom he mentioned in Budapest. RSI is also speaking to ex-director of the Drama ensemble Miriam Kicinova as well as to ex-director of the Opera ensemble about their reasons to resign. Starting a new series LGBTIQ+ in Slovak culture, we explore with Lucia Gregorova Stach, the chief curator of the modern and contemporary art collection at Slovak National Gallery, the reasons why Slovak curators avoid speaking about the queer identity of Andy Warhol despite the fact that the Tate Modern grand exhibition in London in 2020 as well as MUMOK exhibition in 2020 were open about this issue.
