"There is a lack of patrons in Czech culture. I miss willingness to use private funds to support projects that do not promise any profit. Poetry is not a commercial commodity, despite or perhaps because of it -it is necessary to pay attention to such support, "says project Sylva Lauerová.
It was only a matter of time before artist known as the Czech literature chameleon will come with another unpredictable idea. After the support of female love poetry she decided to use funds she had obtained from sales of her blockbuster novels, this time to support experimental poems.
