LUSTR is the largest showcase of illustration in the country and the only opportunity to see the best and the freshest of contemporary illustration in one spot in September in Prague.


Festival LUSTR 2020 – open call


The event features Czech, Slovak and also foreign artists who will present their works in the form of individual installations that allow for the illustrations to shift into another dimension. Apart from that, the festival offers a series of workshops, lectures, concerts, and screenings and the visitors can take part in voting for their most favourite illustrator.

This year's festival (17. - 22. September 2020) comes with a new concept of the exhibition part, which will enable more significant curatorial work and thematic interconnection of exhibited works. The show will consist of three exhibition units called One Hundred Years of Devětsil, Manifest 2020 and a non-thematic show of young authors who have not yet exhibited on LUSTR. For the first time, the festival also opens the gates to authors focused on the medium of comics.
