Fucker Sam (Sráč Sam) runs Sam83 Gallery in Česká Bříza together with her folks and friends. The gallery was founded in 2006 as one of the projects of The Vision for a New Culture and its Place (1989) conceived by Sam, who started immediately its realization. The scale of the subprojects of The Vision is very wide and it’s not easy to get the whole picture. Surrounding Sam and Sam83 Gallery there sprung up and operates a space for critical and free thinking covering a lot of activities. I follow the origins, meaning and the operation of the space in the first part of NJME.
“The vision for a new culture and its place is an open and complex system of principles consisting of both short- and long-term answers to questions that arose during transformation period. In order to fulfill the hypotheses of ‘the vision’ a live model is created, whereby ‘the vision’ is affirmed and by the virtue of natural automatic conversion of information it remains viable. This model was being created in direct responses to place, political order, not to say social relations during period of twenty years and is expected to go on. … The main idea is to create suitable socio-cultural conditions for an automatic, natural conversion of information and thus ascertain an enduring and compact development of social culture without artificial frameworks.” (Fucker Sam, 1989)
