The purpose of the m3 / Art in Space Festival is to enhance the public space of the metropolis through the interventions of selected artists, to bring visitors and inhabitants of the city into contact with current art, to confront them with it and to actively create new territorial contexts through it. In connection with this, breaking down social and local stereotypes and sparking public discussion on specific topics related to the issue. This year, artists are exhibiting their works at train stations. The subtitle of this year’s Festival is “Between spaces”.
The reality of station buildings, railway lines and their surroundings co-creates at first glance the clear boundaries of the basis of the concept of this year’s m3 Festival – Art in Space. In their immediate vicinity, levels of meaning immediately emerge – social, political-aesthetic, architectural, historical, urban, ecological.
