Forbidden Spot is the home of Life is Porno in Prague. What can you find here? First of all it’s our showroom and store. The space was designed by our artist Dian who is also the co-founder of our label. Here you can often buy exclusive pieces which are not for sale online.
A black & white gallery is being made on the stairs. It has already been “signed” by more than 20 artists and counting.
Our store is open every Tuesday and Thursday from 3:03pm to 7:07pm.

We moved to the current Forbidden Spot at the beginning of 2018. Our previous space was also really crazy. Wanna know more? Read on.
Previous Forbidden Spot
We opened our previous Forbidden Spot in 2016 in Prague’s Holešovice Art District. What exactly could you find there?
First of all, it was an art gallery. Actually, the world’s most colourful art gallery – as it has been called in the media. Street artists, graffiti writers, painters, illustrators. All of them left their colour footprints there.
But the gallery was only a part of a huge 1,400 square meters space. Part of it was a co-working space (or an “external living room”, as we called it). The members could do their work in a water bed or inside a large Life is Porno box.
There were quite some events happening at the Forbidden Spot. A skate exhibition took place before the legendary Mystic Skate Cup with world class skaters.
But not only skateboarding was welcome under our roof. Forbidden Spot also hosted Octogon Bohemia, the European breakdance qualification for the Octogon Battle in New York. With bboys from all around Europe:
We also hosted the very first European Barber Battle and barber workshops with celebrity barbers Vince The Barber and Julius Caesar from Grey Matter L.A.
Few of our own exhibitions took place here, too. Such as the biggest exhibition of snapbacks:
Or an exhibition of hats created in collaboration with London-based hat designer BySju:
Not to mention the stickers gallery. Thousands of stickers from artists and brands from all over the world were covering our restrooms. You could easily spend hours there…
The White Room was also part of the Forbidden Spot. It was a creative conference room for brainstorms, workshops and meetings.
