Art on the Stream
Art and Culture of the Danube Region
Art on the Stream brings together artistic positions, artists and curators from the Danube region and is created in the spirit of closer cooperation between the Danube countries.
The various artistic positions, artists and curators from the Danube countries will be shown in a travelling exhibition in the years 2020-2022. In addition, artists and curators will meet repeatedly, exchange ideas and form networks within the framework of symposia and especially within the framework of the two European Capitals of Culture Novi Sad 2021 and Timisoara 2021. The project will be accompanied by an elaborate catalogue (German-English), which as a new component will also include contemporary literary quotations on the selected artworks. The exhibition Kunst am Strom is intended to arouse curiosity about the artistic neighbourhoods in the Danube region. The project deliberately avoids mystification, exoticism or clichés. The touring exhibition makes different positions of the time before and after the fall of the Berlin Wall visible and offers a representative cross-section of the artistic positions of the Danube countries.
