Culture Is a Way of Life

1 SEP – 7 ОCT

CULTURE OF TOGETHERNESS

Five weeks and five arts, at iconic, new places for culture, in new, restored spaces, connect local and European scene and citizens, turning Novi Sad into a kaleidoscope city.

Architecture, literature, performing arts, visual and applied arts, find their way to their citizens of Novi Sad with numerous programmes and mark the end of summer in our city.

The Kaleidoscope of Culture, another legacy project, has been one of the most significant projects in the European Capital of Culture. Furthermore, the Kaleidoscope of Culture is one of the two programme arches of the European Capital of Culture along with Doček thanks to which Novi Sad also received the Award for the best European trend brand in the field of culture in November 2021 in Dresden.

As the largest art gathering in this part of Europe, the Kaleidoscope of Culture is bringing a performance by the famous Viennese Burgtheater, world-class contemporary dance, a performance by one of the world’s greatest violinists Julian Rachlin, a major exhibition dedicated to one of the most significant Serbian, and European, painters of the 20th century, Sava Šumanović, the first independent retrospective exhibition of Dragoljub Raša Teodosijević, a conceptualist and representative of Serbia at the Venice Biennale of Contemporary Art, the art collective Plastique Fantastique from Berlin, which exhibited at the biggest art events, such as the Venice Biennale and the RINGdeLUXE La Rioja festival, as well as numerous other prestigious art programmes.
