A: When visiting Prague one would not miss to cross the Charles Bridge. This Czech jewel older than 700 years connects “the Old Town“ and “the Lesser Town“. It is approximately 516 meters long and 9.5 meters wide. The bridge is formed by sixteen arcs and three towers situated on both sides of the bridge. Thirty baroque statues and sculptural groups are placed along the entire length of the bridge. However, not only these stony gentlemen create such charming character of the bridge. Apart from painters and artists, selling their paintings and products, there are five “artistic pitches“ for buskers on the bridge. Nevertheless, not everyone is allowed to perform. The buskers have to be chosen first by a special jury. The bridge is administrated by “The Charles Bridge Artists Association“ which selects the performers. This poster aims to examine these audition processes in more detail. It also discusses some possible advantages and disadvantages which busking brings to this place, supported by testimonies of buskers themselves. They are also introduced more closely as representatives of the art which has always had its special place in the territory of this important site of Czech cultural heritage.
