Diversity Is Our Strength

31 DEC – 16 JAN

CELEBRATING INTERCULTURALITY

A unique celebration in Europe: two celebrations of New Year’s Eve, two days, two ways of measuring time, two alphabets and two arts. Doček stressed the intercultural identity of Novi Sad through cultural heritage and contemporary practice.

During the title year, in addition to other programmes, Doček brought great multimedia exhibitions inspired by energy and time, i.e., our scientists Nikola Tesla and Milutin Milanković, within which contemporary light and digital forms of expression were used.

More than 280 artists from 9 countries performed at more than 60 events within Doček 2022. Some of the names and programmes you had the opportunity to see: the new queen of fado music Carminho, the Finnish musician Jimi TenorTesla’s light gallery, legendary Slovenian director Dragan Živadinov, and Dušan Jovović, a European award-winning author known to the local public for thematically dealing with the lives of our greats.

1 FEB – 20 MAR

CONNECTING DIVERSITY

This programme arch presented an overview of migration of population as an inspiration in art and it reminded us of the positive consequences of migrations and mutual permeation in culture, which are an integral part of our lives.

One of the main events was the ‘Migration of Souls’, a unique literature pavilion, which connected visual and performing arts, with the aim to present the impact migrations have on an individual. We also experienced the Caravan, a gastronomic journey across Europe through art and flavours, and many other programmes.

The Migrations programme arch contained more than 300 events where we got to enjoy the performances of over 100 artists from 42 countries. Some of the names who marked the Migrations programme, among others, are Japanese singer-songwriter and UNHCR goodwill ambassador Miyavi, the legendary Barcelona Gipsy balKan Orchestra, Antropoceno – a project by the two members of the famous ensemble Gotan Project, Christoph H. Müller and Eduardo Makaroff, pioneers in the art of combining traditional tango and modern pop with electronic music; the star of contemporary dance, Japanese artist Kaori Ito; winners of more than 100 platinum awards around the world, Original Enigma Voices, and others.

You can find the programme book of the Migrations programme arch here, and the calendar of all events is available here.

PROGRAMME UNITS

CROSSROADS

The creation of Novi Sad through migrations was the theme of the exhibitions covering cultural heritage. We took a look at the past from the present perspective in order to envisage a new future. We tried to turn prejudice into laughter, to dance in the city streets and greet everyone who came back to Novi Sad in order to enrich it.

MIGRART

The established and emerging artists of the European art scene addressed the topic of migrations as an inseparable part of the European identity through classical art, photography and contemporary creation.

THE MIGRATION OF SOULS

A unique literature pavilion, in this part of Europe, was held at the Novi Sad Fair so as to emphasise personal and individual experiences of migrations through different forms of art. The rich accompanying artistic and cultural programmes thematised physical departures and arrivals, wanderings, as well as less tangible but equally important questions regarding existential and metaphysical movements.

CARAVAN

Through diverse tastes of gastro culture, flavoured with authentic art, we set out on a four-day programme journey through the regions of Eastern, Western, North and South Europe by visiting the cultural stations in Novi Sad.
