Cultural centre REX is a place for contemporary, socially engaged art and analytical cultural practice.
Through our programmes, we are trying to research and present borderline fields of culture and social engagement and the fields in which different branches of art overlap. The mutual aim of projects is to educate and empower individuals and groups to articulate and put into the practice their ideas, to develop an understanding of social relations and use their knowledge and skills in a creative way. Special attention is devoted to young authors and audiences.
We support, present and produce contemporary art and cultural projects through open public events, presentation, lectures, dance and theatre performances, exhibition, concerts, workshops, film and music festival, but we are daily open for rehearsals, preparation of projects and meetings of related initiatives and organisations.
