Bohemian spirits|The exhibition "Bohemia: History of an Idea, 1950–2000" opened at Kunsthalle Praha on March 23, where it will be on display until Oct. 16. Revolving around the idea of bohemianism, the exhibition features work in various media, with a predominance of photography, video, and painting that take viewers from "post-war Paris and New York, through swinging London, to the free spirits of Tehran and Beijing."

cinema

Czech history| "Good Old Czechs," a documentary about the role of Czech airmen fighting for Great Britain’s Royal Air Force during World War II, will be at Kino Pilotů on March 26. The film follows František Fajtl and Filip Jánský, two pilots fighting in different countries in Europe during the war, and narrates their candid inner thoughts and feelings about serving in the war.

German-Austrian music|Hailing from Germany, the psychedelic stoner garage surf rock band Rainbow Head will be at Večerní kavárna Souterrain on March 25. The show will also feature Austrian singer-songwriter Marley Wildthing, who combines various instruments, with which she creates complex layers of looped melodies, vocals, and beats, all held together by her positive energy and deep voice.

English rockers return|The Subways hit the Lucerna Music Bar stage on March 26.

They're touring in support of a new album in 2023.

Peek behind the curtain|The comedy Death Suits Him is at Švandovo divadlo na Smíchově on March 25 (with English subtitles).
