VLAK is an enormous hardback journal that acts as an international curatorial project with a broad focus on contemporary poetics, art, film, philosophy, music, science, design, politics, performance, ecology, and new media. VLAK aims to house work which explores the ramifications of contemporary culture and attempts to showcase new critical and creative methods, while driving to experiment, to synthesise, to extend—holding to the principle that a vital culture is always experimental. The journal is published annually and is connected to the people behind Equus press and the Prague microfestival.

Issue 4 of VLAK will focus, apart from open, original work, on the concept of “underground cinema” – anything alternative to mainstream production, documentaries, socio-political investigative work, visually experimental stuff.
