First European Capital of Culture in an EU Candidate Country

NOVI SAD (Neови Сад, Neusatz, Újvidék, Nový Sad), the second venue for the EVROVIZION project, is the European Capital of Culture in 2021, and thus the first such cultural capital in a state currently applying to join the EU. Novi Sad is the capital of Vojvodina, an autonomous region in northern Serbia. It is a multicultural and multinational city. With its University ‘Matica Srpska’ and numerous festivals, the city offers a vibrant arts and theatre scene and rich educational opportunities. Six official languages ​​are in use (Serbian, Hungarian, Croatian, Slovak, Romanian, Ruthenian), and media participation is guaranteed for the minorities. With the University of Novi Sad, known as the Matica Srpska – Serbia’s oldest institution for the arts and sciences, and numerous festivals, the city offers a diverse and vibrant arts and theatre scene and rich educational opportunities. Due to Novi Sad’s proximity to Hungary and its historical roots in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Hungarians are the city’s largest ethnic minority.

Sanja Kojić Mladenov, one of the curators of EVROVIZION who has been a curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Vojvodina/Novi Sad for many years, will present the exhibition here.
