Artopolis Association

Artopolis Association was created in 2008 with the mission of organising cultural and community events focusing on site-specific art and art in public space. The main aims of the Association are - at the same time and inseparably - artistic and social - to introduce a practically unknown artistic form in Hungary by offering a rich and varied cultural programme, to promote a better understanding of (contemporary) arts by engaging new audiences, to encourage and commission Hungarian artists to work outside of the traditional places and frames of art, to shed new light on the city with artistic projects, - to serve as a platform for dialogue about the city we inhabit and an opportunity for interdisciplinary encounters, to develop a critical approach towards the use of public space, re-think power mechanisms embedded in the urban context, to inspire awareness and a more proactive attitude in the way we think about our urban environments and our participation in public issues.
