Czech artist going to prison for his work?

(Proti šedi, 22nd February, 2012, 2.10PM)

Funny traffic lights in Prague by Roman Tyc

Roman Týc is a nickname of a young Czech visual artist, member of the Ztohoven group.

Ztohoven are known for their controversial art which has brought them a lot of media exposure and also problems with the authorities.

In 2007, the artist who works under the pseudonym Roman Týc changed the traffic lights in Prague, exchanging the usual figures for the ones you see at the picture next to our article, and we also bring you a photo gallery of the said traffic lights after his deed.

He had to pay for the repairs, and also was fined 60 000 CZK.

Týc decided not to pay the fine and is to serve a prison sentence of 30 days instead, starting this Friday, February 24th.

There are numerous protest activities taking shape:

Bábovka pro Týce (Cake for Týc) is an activity of people who want to bake cakes and bring or send them to Prague's Pankrác prison where Týc is to serve is sentence. Czech musicians are working on a compilation called Prison Blues – the list includes several internationally known names...

Commentary: Art and Democracy Sent to Prison

(Erik Tabery, Respekt.cz, 20. 2. 2012)

For the first time since 1989 a Czech artist has been imprisoned because of his work
The artist Roman Týc will soon be imprisoned. A few years ago, as part of his work, he decided to change the illuminated figures on some traffic lights. The aim was to observe people's responses. As punishment for this act, the court gave him the option of paying a 60,000 CZK fine or serving a prison term. Týc has refused to pay the fine because he thinks it is wrong to accept this kind of artistic repression, and the court duly ruled that he has to serve time in jail.

Prankster artist discovers from press he's due in prison

(Tom Jones, Czech Position, 22. 2. 2012)

Five years ago artist Roman Týc replaced glass with the standard human-shaped silhouettes in stationary and walking positions from 50 traffic lights across Prague and replaced them with his own figures, many in decidedly non-standard positions — at least for public settings. Czech law enforcement and judiciary did not appreciate the artistic intent behind the stunt and now Týc faces a prison term.

L'artiste Roman Týc appelé à purger sa peine de prison

(Anna Kubišta, Český rozhlas, 21. 2. 2012)

D'après la chaîne de télévision privée Nova, le tribunal du VIIe arrondissement de Prague a appelé l'artiste tchèque Roman Týc à aller purger sa peine de prison. Membre du groupe Ztohoven, Roman Týc avait été condamné en décembre dernier à une peine de prison d'un mois pour avoir refusé de payer l'amende infligée pour le remplacement en 2007 des pictogrammes des feux piétons. L'artiste avait fait appel de la décision sans succès. Il doit désormais se présenter à la prison de Pankrác. Si Roman Týc dit ne pas reconnaître le verdict, il affirme qu'il ira purger sa peine.

Sostitui' omini semafori, in carcere
A Praga pupazzetti al posto pedoni, artista rifiuta multa

(ANSA, 25 febbraio 2012, 16:11)

Dovra' scontare un mese in carcere a Praga, per aver sostituito gli omini dei semafori per i pedoni con figurine ironiche. L'artista Roman Týc si e' rifiutato di pagare la multa 2.400 euro e dovra' quindi finire in galera. Nel 2007 Tyc sostitui' su 50 semafori a Praga le solite figurine verdi e rosse con un ubriacone, un omino che fa pipi', un disabile senza una gamba ecc. La sua iniziativa suscito' il sostegno di artisti e opinione pubblica che chiedono ora la grazia presidenziale.

nema koule na to, aby si stal za svym vlastnim umeleckym nazorem, radsi rekne, ze nastoupi do vezeni misto, aby si stal za svym nazorem, ze umeni ma byt svobodne, ci co to mele za hovna.

skutecny umelec s koulema, ktery si za svym nazorem stoji a rika, ze nepujde do vezeni protoze jen komunikoval s politiky.

Smetana není žádnej umělec - Smetana je obyčejnej blb! A do vězení samozřejmě půjde, ať u si říká, co chce...

To, že je ten trest absurdní, už je ovšem zas věc jiná...
