All on board! Transart Communication is turning 30 and has created a rigorous program for the whole year, with exciting international art encounters, to take place on boats, trains, in small communities, over food, in galleries, public spaces and much more all across central Europe.

The first event is soon setting off land and we invite you to join us on our performance boat from Budapest to Bratislava, with a stop in Štúrovo, to present a performances group situation, before invading Bratislava with experimental and exploratorative art making!

The boat will be packed with international artists, alongside performance art students and teachers. It will be an incredible four days of fluid cultural exchanges across border, genres and languages. So get you lifejacket and sailor hats and join the boat ride.

–For joining the TAC 30 Boat and for more details, see information below–


The river is an in-between place, which both belongs to the river itself – a liminal space of movement and change -, yet deeply affected by the political and social tendencies and history, found on either side of the river. The TAC30 boat will invite international artists, along students and teachers from seven significant Visual Art Universities from Central European, working with performance art, to tackle the context of the river, by encouraging intercultural relations and dialogues. It thus becomes a platform for artistic exchanges across disciplines, education, practices, countries, generations and views. Simultaneously, the natural movement of the river evoke a sense of borderlessness and change. The Boat Project thus becomes an action, which opens up for the discussion and debate about the effect and relation cultures has to one another, beyond the idea of borders.

Partners: Vajda Lajos Stúdió Kulturális Egyesület (Szentendre), Foundation for Intermedia Art Development (Krakow), Association Galerie Michal (Ostrava).

Associate partner: Cultural association Štúrovo and Vicinity
