Flowing Connections (FLOC) is a European cultural cooperation project of international contemporary art exhibitions in Germany, Croatia, Hungary and Lithuania, complimented by an Artist in Residence program and a series of internal workshops about digital cultural management, postindustrial cultural spaces, art education and the inclusion of people with disabilities.
Connecting four cities with a close relation to water and building bridges between two ECOC cities among them – Dresden in Germany by the river Elbe, Budapest in Hungary by the river Danube, Rijeka (ECOC 2020) in Croatia on the coast of the Adriatic, and Kaunas (ECOC 2022) in Lithuania by the Nemunas and Neris rivers –, the project explores the artistic, ecological and cultural questions of waterside living, the rivers and seas that nourish and threaten our cities in equal measure, divide and unite people, nationalities and landscapes, and our caring or abusive relationships with them.
The first episode of the FLOC Videolog introduces the project and its main objectives, the members of the international curatorial team, their work and their thoughts on the cooperation, and gives a first sneak peek into the future main venues of the first FLOC co-funfed exhibition, the OSTRALE Biennale O21, which will be open between 1 July - 3 October 2020 in Dresden, Germany.
The project is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
