Austrian Authors at Mikser Festival 2021
Mikser organization continues its successful long-term cooperation with the Austrian Cultural Forum in Belgrade on co-creation of the Mikser Festival programs. This year, three Austrian authors are participating in one of the largest regional festivals of creativity, depicting the diversity of AKF activities in Serbia: from science to art.
Architect and founder of the Austrian Vertical Farm Institute, Daniel Podmirseg will share his knowledge in the field of nature-based urban solutions at the panel “Human Cities” within the festival’s Mikser Talks conference program. The aim of the discussion of gathered experts and representatives of relevant local institutions is to include these perspectives in the public dialogue on planning more sustainable, healthier and happier cities and to open space for improving the planning process in our urban practice.
As an extension of the project “At Second Glance” of the Austrian Cultural Forum, artists Pira Tin and Tijana Petrovic will hold a workshop within the art platform “Black Box” of the Mikser Festival where they will present their work and exchange views with young authors from the region. The online platform „At Second Glance“ was created in the year which marks the 20th anniversary of the Austrian Cultural Forum Belgrade, as well as the 185th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Austria and Serbia. It is an exhibition space for thematic and curated art content, which showcases works by 10 visual artists from Serbia and 10 from Austria arrived at the competition that is being announced for this occasion.
As one of the speakers in the panel discussion “The Future of Art”, Austrian artist Sangam Sharma, also participating in the project “At a Glance”, will discuss with colleagues from the region about the challenges posed by the global pandemic, as well as new forms and experiences of artistic activity which are awaiting us in the future.
