The project COLLABORATION was initiated by seven German artists grouped around Thomas Thiede. The main feature of the project is a collaboration of artists who in various conditions of new environments - either artistic or geographical - create site specific works referring to a specific character of particular places. Collaboration among artists or with other art collectives is a key element in the project. The exhibition COLLABORATION_4 at SPACE Gallery features works created during artist's stay at the culture center BANSKÁ ST A NICA Contemporary in Banska Štiavnica in autumn 2011.

Curators: Thomas Thiede and Svätopluk Mikyta
