The exhibition is a response to the demolition of Bratislava's amphitheater, as the termination of the life-style, individual histories, sharing, thinking and dreaming, which this building facility of the city has created. The exhibition reconstructs its physical existence allusively through models as well as through the original artifacts recovered from the demolition site, in an attempt to recall the memory traces closely linked with their place of emergence. The story of the destruction of the amphitheater itself is narrated as its last big spectacle.
