We believe in culture as a driving force for a democratic society and in its ability to forge links between diverse linguistic and geographical regions. Culturally speaking, the countries of Central and South Eastern Europe are a highly diverse area which shares a past of enforced political conformity. We offer a platform to reflect on the ambivalence between a newly acquired, regional identity, the centrifugal forces of nationalist fragmentation and common monocultural historical experiences.
Working with artistic strategies creates an experimental playing field for utopias and for proposals beyond the feasibility of everyday politics as well as for exploring the possibilities of various artistic approaches.
We particularly promote independent projects and those engaged in the cultural sector by providing them with resources and cross-border contacts that are not embedded within state institutions. Most of our projects are transnational, involving research activities that focus on the visual arts from the 1960s to the present day.
