Mountains are for many families, youth and elders the first go to holiday destination in the Visegrad region. Either for a quick weekend getaway, or longer seasonal vacation, mountains offer multiple activities from skiing and snowboarding, to hiking, bungee jumping and many others. We all enjoy fresh air and peaceful forests. However, mountains also can be, unfortunately, very dangerous. It is when we need skilled mountain rescuers!
The Secondary Archive is an online research and database platform that presents non-Western — primarily Central and Eastern European — art through the lens of gender, covering the period after WWII through the present. The archive, an international project focusing on Central and Eastern Europe, is realised by the Katarzyna Kozyra Foundation, together with its partners Easttopics (Hungary) Björnsonova (Slovakia), and MeetFactory (Czech Republic). The platform gives free access to more than 250 female artists’ profiles, containing newly published artist and curatorial texts developed especially for the purpose of the archive. Representing three generations of artists from Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary, the platform aims to help promote, discover, and rediscover female artists and the most valuable phenomena of contemporary art of our region.
The most recent data on homelessness is the following: 68.500 in the Czech Republic, 30.000 in Hungary, 33.408 in Poland are estimated to be sleeping rough on a single night with no official data from Slovakia. Moreover, recent comparative research has shown that post-socialist countries are leading in intolerance and prejudice among European countries. As the partners of the project claim, this has mainly been strengthened by populist and xenophobic discourse.
