In the frame of “European Capital of Culture” the NGO “Kosice 2013” develops an international artist-in-residence program for emerging artists from all over the world and out of all artistic disciplines and expressions. We give them the possibility to become a cultural pioneer and work in the inspiring environment of Košice’s singular cultural surrounding to realize art projects, collaborate with the agile local art scene and present themselves to the local and national public.

K.A.I.R. supports artist mobility since May 2011. We choose artists based on recommendations and open calls, in cooperation with our partners in Europe. Until now, we have sent and invited artist from different countries like e.g. Poland, Germany, Spain, Ukraine or Moldova. We can host 3 artist at the same time to encourage exchange and  support the dialogue between different scenes. In Kosice, we provide flats, studios, honorary, and help to realize projects. On this page, you can discover our previous, current and upcoming artists in residence.
