Normalizační festival (The Normalisation Festival) is an original monograph about Czechoslovak late socialism, in particular the late socialist public sphere, which is today regarded as toxic. The book’s author Přemysl Houda eschews the dichotomy of dead and living water and shows that it was indeed possible to do something meaningful with the grey words of socialism at that time.
