ArtCoMe. Art and Contemporary Me.
Artwork as a medium building European identity

How have the views of the Czechs, Slovaks, Poles and Hungarians developed and changed over the last ten years of the Austro-Hungarian Empire? What shape did it take in the first years of the existence of the newly created nation states? What role did art in these historic events?

The international project entitled “ArtCoMe. Art and Contemporary Me. Artwork as a medium building European identity” connects students from four partner cities – Olomouc, Krakow, Bratislava and Pécs – to answer the question of how young people today perceive the art of Central European avant-garde and the identity built on it’s base.

ArtCoMe is an educational project based on cooperation between students, professionals, teachers and museum educators. It was created to facilitate the establishment of intercultural dialogue based on a common European heritage. Its purpose is to break the boundaries between amateur and professional art.

The project consists of:
  • international educational program for students and teachers,
  • exhibition “Years of Disarray: Art of the Avant-Garde in Central Europe 1908–1928”,
  • international scientific conference,
  • publication,
  • national educational program.
The most important part of the project are four school youth meetings, held in 2018–2020, following the “Years of Disarray: Art of the Avant-garde in Central Europe 1908–1928” exhibition organized by the Museum of Art in Olomouc, in cooperation with the Gallery of the City of Bratislava, the International Cultural Center in Krakow and the Museum Janus Pannonius in Pecs.

We also invite you to watch a short movie about the project.
