"Art inspires, produces an unwillingness to settle for what we have and a desire for something better. It is essential for continuous development"
Alser Culture Ground is an international artistic association established in Vienna (Austria), with the main goal to promote art created by international artists living in Austria, especially those originating from the Balkans. We want to make the international cultural contribution more visible and support the integration into the local artistic scene, consequently enriching the cultural life of Vienna. The variety of cultural heritage reflects different perceptions of reality, sets new guidelines for the society, and helps us to understand each other better. We made a place to meet, exchange thoughts, ideas and goods, a place to talk, have fun and be inspired, a place where people can connect more meaningfully, bringing uniqueness and diversity at the same time. We made room for art to act, to open questions on important topics of life, to awake, to provoke and, finally, to provide a feeling of connection, consolation and growth.

4+1 is the name of the art/discussion event, that is taking place once a month. It involves organization of exhibitions, readings, screenings or performance, where people are invited to sit together with artists and share insights and thoughts on what crystalizes to be the topic of the evening. Tasty food, drinks and good music is included in the program
The Let’s connect project is conceived as a long-term concept along the path of breaking through socio-political barriers between the Western world and the Balkan countries, through guest appearances and joint presentations, primarily by artists who create in Austria and Serbia, which is also to be extended to other European countries. The presentation of one artist from Serbia and one from Austria will take place in the same exhibition / stage space.

The four of us come from different parts of the Balkans, we all have different backgrounds and each of us came to Vienna for different reasons. But our common denominator turned out to be the love of art and our commitment to it. The main drive that shapes our lives and determines our search for meaning is the desire to create. The place where we can always find “our tribe” is the art world. We came up with the idea to create a piece of environment for all those who share the need to be a part of a more interesting flow of reality and a part of the emergence of contemporary artistic practices. This is why we founded the Alser Culture Ground association
