The Danube Dialogues Festival of Contemporary Artis is an international multimedia mosaic festival of visual arts of the Danube region, taking place simultaneusly in various galleries and alternative places in Novi Sad. Artists, art historians and critics from 14 countries of the Danube macro region participate in this festival, offering an extremely interesting insight into the current art trends of this European region.
There are many reasons for this regional examination of current art scene. The Danube georaphy, from the Black Forest (Schwarzwald) to the Black Sea, connects developed Central Europe with less developed turbulent Balkan countries and the former Eastern block countries. Numerous ongoing integration processes within the EU have contributed to closer artistic ties among those countries, making them more compatible and, consequently, more interesting and visible.
