3rd OSTRALE Biennial

International exhibition of contemporary arts of the OSTRALE center for contemporary art

Given the ecological, social and economic dynamics of the last decade, it is becoming increasingly clear that the imperative of constant growth and development is no longer a sustainable vision for our future, if we want one at all.

At the beginning of a new, post-pandemic era, the OSTRALE is now hopefully researching in 2021 how we can coexist with our fellow human beings, animals and our complex environment.
The guiding principles of the OSTRALE which are reflected in the content of the exhibitions are peaceful coexistence, acceptance of the foreign or the unknown, respectful interaction, religious diversity and internationality. This also creates a special connection to the socio-cultural project "Reconciliation of Values", which is supported by the Winter Foundation, among others. Under the curatorial concept "change of breath", the OSTRALE artistically deals with the limits of growth, with questions of sustainability and life on the Water.

On display are 557 works of various genres by 138 participating artists from 34 countries.
Artistic directors: Andrea Hilger and Antka Hofmann. Invited curators: Natasa Bodrozic and Ivana Mestrov (Croatia), Patricija Gilyte (Lithuania) and Krisztián Kukla (Hungary).
Participating artists, including: Sali Muller, Julija Pocit, Emil Andersson, Katharina Andress, Devadeep Bani Sarmah Gupta, Bojan Mrđenovic, Nadja Buttendorf, Alexei Dmitriev, Etienne de France, Mona Freudenreich, Xueying Wang, Melanie Richter.
