WHAT IS KODEKÜ?

“Kodekü” is a special residency for artists, which took place in Bischofswerda for the first time in 2020 and was successfully continued in the last years. Filmmakers, artists, authors, educated artists and musicians from all over Europe come to Lusatia and work for two weeks on participatory project ideas that they have submitted in advance of the project. But the artists should not just create new works, but rather come into contact with Lusatia. The aim is to make the region more colorful, lively and, above all, more open. The conclusion is an interactive exhibition in which the resulting works are presented and a diverse supporting program with workshops and live music is offered.
Since different arts come together, we call the action 'Kodekü' - collision of the arts. The concept of “Kodekü” is based on the fact that as many interactions as possible take place between our guests and local residents.
Strengthening the togetherness works wonderfully through the medium of art and we look forward to the broadening of the perspective for both sides - the local people and the artists.

WHAT'S HAPPENING IN WEIßWASSER THIS YEAR?

The fourth edition will take place in Weißwasser in 2023.

National and international freelance artists and students from all areas of the visual and performing arts are eligible to apply. The Neuffert Bau in Weißwasser serves as a common working space.

This offers enough space to work together and to provide everyone with their own working area. Overnight accommodation with shared living and sleeping quarters is available at the Weißwasser station.

But of course we don't just want you to work in silence. We would like you to get to know our region and its people, as well as the other artists, and to exchange ideas. The impressions gained should be processed in your artist work. To support you in this, we will go on excursions into the region. We will live and work together from 20th August to 3rd September 2023; the final event will take place on 2nd September 2023. The whole city can and should be used as a working space.

Do you want to participate in the intensive networking, the creation of access to art for all and the sustainable revitalisation of the region in and around Weißwasser? Then contact us with your concrete idea where you see your contribution to the "Collision of the Arts".

"Summer 2021. European artists come to the small Saxon town of Bischofswerda and work for two weeks on art projects that they present on site.

However, the artists should not simply present their works and projects, but come into contact with Lusatia. A film with many perspectives about the attempt to promote openness and interest in art in East Saxony." - Global Perspectives
