Dear friends and associates,
The 8th edition of the Festival of Contemporary Art Danube Dialogues 2020 takes place in Novi Sad in the midst of global uncertainty caused by the corona pandemic, confronting us with unexpected challenges. Soon after the crisis broke out, the festival team, together with the curators, decided to continue its preparations for the festival, convinced that one must act regardless of life circumstances. This encouraged artists and brought about optimism and hope, offering new creative impetus at a time when museums and galleries around the world were closing and exhibitions, fairs and art events were being cancelled one after another. We have endeavored to adjust the festival programme to these new conditions, prepared alternative options and developed an online platform for presenting artistic content to the public. The theme of this year’s festival ‘Quo Vadis, Homo?’, suggested last year by the artistic director Sava Stepanov, fully reflects the present moment of grave concern for human destiny. Life has no alternative, and adapting to the circumstances is a prerequisite for our survival. The first step, of course, is to learn to live with the virus, respecting all the necessary protection measures in order to achieve some new normalcy.
We look forward to meeting you again, believing in the vitality and strength of artistic messages. We invite you to follow our programme in vivo and online, and to share with us your impressions of the exhibitions where artists from the region express their concern for man and his destiny.
Stay healthy! Live with art!
See you soon!
