CULTURESCAPES invites you on a press conference for the upcoming multidisciplinary art festival CULTURESCAPES Balkans 2013, starting on October 19th in Basel, as well as the Swiss CULTURESCAPES season, starting on October 12th in Belgrade. Press conference will be held on Monday, October 7th at 11AM at Cultural Center “KC Grad”, 4 Brace Krsmanovic Street, Belgrade.
CULTURESCAPES Balkan 2013 was conceived with an idea to present the modern art production of the unique geo-cultural area of the Western Balkans to the Swiss audiences, but also to provide a framework where they could broaden and review their own image of it. The Festival has more than 300 different art events, showcasing around 400 artist from the region, and over 80 from Serbia. The events will take place in the cities all over Switzerland: Aarau, Bellinzona, Bern, Boswilu, Biel, Chur, Genf, Luzern, Moutier, Scuol, Thun, Winterthur and Zurich.
At the same time, a program called Swiss CULTURESCAPES will be held, where the artist from Switzerland will present their work in eight countries from the Balkans. Working with the local partners, cultural institutions and festivals, over 30 productions are going to come to the largest cities in the region. Attendees will be addressed by the festival Director Jurriaan Cooiman, Swiss Ambassador in Belgrade Jean-Daniel Ruch, and Art Director of Swiss Music Days Bojan Djordjevic. We will present relevant information on the participants of this year’s program in Switzerland, as well as the rich Swiss program which will take place during the month of October in Belgrade.
In order to prepare special materials, we kindly ask you to confirm your attendance
