Kvet Nguyen: Area without Memory, Borders and Name
cooperation: Krajanský inštitút
language: Slovak

Being someone is a relative concept. Belonging somewhere has its limitations, too. In a globalized world migration leaves the concept of nation floating around us. A student of the Academy of Fine Arts and Design (VŠVU) Kvet Nguyen uses the sentiments of diaspora in her work, materializing the elements that make up identity. She does not expect a specific answer, the goal is just to ask questions. What does it mean to be a foreigner in your own country?

The photo exhibition is open until 4th October 2019.

No proper festival can start without a dance session! The Czech United Flavor Soundsystem are full of energy, which is not surprising, as the band is made of Sista Carmen from Spain and producer and bass guitarist Djei Gogo, originally from the Ivory Coast. They bring us a modern mix of reggae, hip hop, R'n'B and world music. The international project Gonsofus of Sasha Mamaev and Gábor Tokár represents the “home team”. Ešli, an American performer with Slovak roots, and DJs Rossyeball and Birdperson add their own ingredients to the mix of good music and dance.

language: Slovak

We often consider Slovakia as a country of Slovaks and some national minorities. We often do not realize that foreigners have been living here for a long time, even if they do not have Slovak citizenship. But what about their children? They were born here but often appear exotic in one way or another. How do their neighbours perceive them? How do they perceive themselves? What’s more important: origin of their parents or the environment where they grow up? Laco Oravec will discuss with Elena Gallová Kriglerová and Samo Arbe about the invisible minority of second generation immigrants.

Tomáš Halász: Where Are You From? (Odkiaľ si?)
cooperation: BigMedia

Slovakia is more diverse than we think, it’s a home to Slovaks, Hungarians, Roma, Ruthenians, Ukrainians, Czechs, Germans, Poles, Croatians, Serbs, Jews, Bulgarians, Moravians, Russians, foreigners of various backgrounds (and their children).

Young people in the photos made by Tomáš Halász have all been born in Slovakia. However, one or both of their parents are from another country. What does their background mean to them? How does it influence their identity? Where is their home? How do they perceive themselves and how are they perceived by others?

How often are they asked the question: Where are you from?

During the festival, the exhibition will be installed in the streets of the Old Town. Keep your eyes open!

from 12th September / staircase at Klariská and Podjavorinskej Streets artistic installation
Aleš Vojtášek: The Staircase
cooperation: Bratislava-Old Town

The Staircase - artist Aleš Vojtášek’s new installation is an expression of the desire for Slovakia as a country without pigeonholing, prejudice and xenophobia. A society caught in the storm of "isms", from populism to nationalism and fascism, is easy to manipulate, so it is important not to succumb to it, not to generalize but to perceive the value of a person, her or his quality, perceive her or his inner world. Climbing the stairs symbolizes a ritual purification from stereotypes and a symbol of hope that at the peak of our efforts we will find a more open, understanding and confident Slovakia for all.
