Kosice 2013 – European Capital of Culture (www.kosice2013.sk)


By now, Košice and whole Eastern Slovakia is one of the most  
fascinating regions in Europe. Not for nothing, Košice awarded the  
title “European Capital of Culture 2013”. During the last centuries,  
the whole region was influenced by many different kingdoms, countries  
and cultural groups and still you can feel this multicultural spirit  
in the city, not only because of the huge Hungarian and Roma  
minorities or because of the three universities. During the  
socialistic time, Košice became a centre of steel industry, the  
population tripled within 3o years. The influence of the former  
socialistic times, especially in architecture and working  
infrastructure, still exists. During the last years, Košice, located  
at the Schengen border, starts a huge transformation process and will  
become a important cultural hub between east and west in social,  
political and artistic terms.

Artist in Residence

In the frame of European Capital of Culture the NGO Košice 2013 (www.kosice2013.sk 
  / www.kasarne.sk) is running an international Artist-in-Residence- 
program for emerging artists from all over the world and out of all  
artistic disciplines and expressions. We give our residents the  
possibility to become a cultural pioneer and work in the inspire  
environment of Košice`s singular cultural surrounding to realize art  
projects, collaborate with the agile local art scene and present  
themselves to the local and national public.

We pursuit three main goals within this residency-project:

1.     Support the creative energy of every invited artist and give  
him/her the chance to work in a new and very special environment to  
find (new) artistic ways to express.

2.     Stimulate the art scene in Kosice, in the region and in whole  
Slovakia. Support the dialogue as well as the confrontation of the  
residency-artists with local artists and the wide public.

3.     Create/strengthen a beneficial environment for the development  
of innovative and international contemporary art projects with  
international and local participants.

According to our main goals, our team will introduce every artist in  
the social environment of the city and the region and help them to  
build up networks and collaborations with local artists. We will  
organise public events like lectures, projections, workshops and open  
studios to give all artists the chance to introduce and present  
themselves to a wide public. A final exhibition/presentation will show  
the working process during the stay of each artist.
