From 2015 to 2016, the artist-in-residence programme “West Balkan Calling” took place in Belgrade, Cetinje, Prishtina, Sarajevo, Skopje and Tirana as well as in Graz, Klagenfurt, Krems, Linz and Vienna. A total of 12 artists visited the cities mentioned above for a residency. During this time, they realised works of art and/or were inspired to create new works, which will be presented in the exhibition “responseABILITY”.
The observations and individual experiences made within the guest artists' residencies form the starting point of the exhibition. They could check their expectations, compare them with their impressions on site and put them into relation to their own living environments. Moreover, the mutual exchange opened up the possibility to compare perceptions of the different cultural spaces.
Participating artists: Stefano Romano/DZT, Dante Buu, Veronika Eberhart, Nina Valerie Kolowratnik, Marko Kosović, Wolfgang Obermair, Danilo Prnjat, Gregor Schlatte, Deniz Sözen, tadi, Inge Vavra, Velimir Zernovski
