During this summer, we will be wandering through squares, schools, and festivals in Slovak villages and towns. Using playful forms and the metaphoric language of art, we will call the public's attention to the issues of xenophobia, racism, and extremism. Our mission is to motivate people to think critically, and remind them of the need to be tolerant and understanding of minorities.

exhibiting artists:
Alena Foustková /CZ/, Projekt Karavan (Oto Hudec + Danka Krajčová), Kundy Crew, Stano Masár, migrantas.org /ARG-D/, Tomáš Rafa, Shooty, Ivana Šáteková, Kateřina Šedá /CZ/ a Anna Witt /A/

curator: Juraj Čarný

'The fact that we are experiencing an increase in extremism, racism, and xenophobia urges me to be more active in presenting cultural values to people who live in regions that do not have sufficient access to culture and information. Frequently, the social situation of these people does not allow them to travel to visit cultural events outside their hometowns; as a result, many of these people have trouble when it comes to distinguishing between information and disinformation,' said Juraj Čarný. 'My ambition is to make this exhibition as viral as possible. Our visitors should leave the gallery not only with new ideas, but also with a piece of artwork in the form of a bag, magnet, button, or sticker, which can then continue communicating with many other people,' added Čarný.

We will visit 45 locations, including those holding the following festivals: Atmosféra in Hontianske Nemce, Ružový bicykel (Pink Bicycle) in Bardejov, Skapal Pes Fest (the Back of Beyond World Fest) in Trebišov, Hviezdne noci (Starry nights) in Bytča, Minifest in Spišský Hrhov, Tužina Groove, Kiosk at Stanica Žilina, 4 živly (4 elements) in Banská Štiavnica, Gelnické iluminácie (Gelnica Illuminations), Pride / Tabačka Košice, and Dobrý Trh (Good Market) on Panenská street in Bratislava. We will also be at the official celebrations of the 75th anniversary of the Slovak National Uprising (SNP) in the SNP Museum in Banská Bystrica. The towns visited will also include Strážske, Humenné, Veľké Kapušany, Stropkov, Žarnovica, Nová Kelča, Trstená, Tisovec, Kráľovský Chlmec and many others.
