One of the main issues faced by numerous artists from the former Eastern Bloc is their almost complete lack of visibility in the global media. Even EU-member countries like Romania and Hungary have let a hyper-individualist strain of capitalist competitiveness flourish, pushing only a select few into the press/festival circuit. By contrast, places such as Slovakia or the Czech Republic have focused on local organizing instead. Nowhere is that focus as prevalent as in Prague, where several art/music crews, community-run spaces, and other initiatives focused on solidarity have taken root.
