About the project

For several years the team of the Other Space Foundation organizes original art projects in cooperation with partners - independent artistic organizations from Azerbaijan, Armenia and Georgia. Together we organize the only multidisciplinary, international festival of contemporary art inspired by the Caucasus ( as well as such events like alternative Polish days in Tbilisi - Art Zone Poland/Tbilisi. Implementation of the Transkaukazja 2010 - 2011 project will be a continuation of our activity in the field of intercultural dialogue in the Caucasus and will support the artistic activity as an example of good practice in cooperation with Caucasus and EU partners.

About the festival

The event brings closer one of the most intensive, multicultural parts of the world. Transkaukazja host cities become a bridge connecting East - still a subject to exploration with West, which looks for new inspirations. Despite internal conflicts, Caucasus is a starting point for many works of contemporary artists.

During the festival the audience has an opportunity of direct contact with contemporary art created in this one of the most culturally rich regions in the world: from visual art to theater, from cinema to dance, from music to photography. This event promotes multinational cooperation aimed at concrete results.


Transkaukazja 2011 is going to be already fifth edition of the festival. This year the organizers decided to extend the formula of the festival by taking new actions all over the Europe (eg. Estonia, Germany, France, Norway) and in the Caucasus.

More information about the planned activities can be sent to the people/organizations who/which will be interested.
