Summertime is Street-Art Festival time in Slovak capital

Summer is a time when art frequently takes to the streets and in that vein Batelier.sk organised the “zero year” of the Street Art Festival that took place at Batelier (Továrenská 14) and the Museum of Transport (Šancová 1) in Bratislava, on June 17 and 19. On the weekend of June 23-25 downtown Bratislava was offered an array of shows featuring a variety of programmes including a fire-dance show, a juggling act, Firebirds Steam On (steam-punk show), a dance-hall performance by L’MC, concerts of folk, the Hugo Čáves Orchestra, and ethno (Jamadan percussion) music, as well as many theatre pieces for children and adults.

Two events stood out: The Fotopark exhibition on the Danube River embankment, which displayed the works of photographers from all over Slovakia. The other outstanding attraction was the façade of the Kutscherfeld Palace on the Main Square, which was covered with graffiti, by the visual tool Tag-Tool. The façade’s radical alteration was only temporary, of course. The Institut Francais informed The Slovak Spectator that the graffiti ceased to exist as of 22:30 on Friday, June 24. These events were organised under the supervision of the Bratislava Street Art Festival (www.streetartfestival.sk).
