A4 - Zero Space, Bratislava, 2005

Multiplace is an annual festival of media art and network culture, held since 2002 in multiple locations in Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Austria, Poland, Hungary, and other places. Next to Enter in Prague, WRO Biennale in Wroclaw and Ars Electronica in Linz, it is one of the largest events for media art and culture in Central Europe.

The festival is held in Spring, lasts 5-14 days and offers up to a hundred events including performances, exhibitions, workshops, discussions, presentations and screenings. It was coordinated by Mária Rišková (2002-04), Katarína Kucbelová (2005), Zuzana Duchová (2006-07), Dušan Barok (2008-09), and currently by Barbora Šedivá (since 2010). Other members of the coordination and program groups included Slávo Krekovič, Viera Levitt, Magdaléna Kobzová, Zdenka Konečná, Peter Gonda, Katarína Gatialová, Barbora Kalinová, Barbora Námerová, Dáša Peštová, Michal Kindernay, and many others.

The festival started as a coordinated event organised by people with a shared interest in presenting new forms of creativity. In April 2002 Buryzone, Jan Koniarek Gallery, Space Gallery, Atrakt Art association, Rokast, Subterra, Czech Centre in Bratislava, and Austrian Cultural Forum in Bratislava joined efforts and during five days organised at 7 locations (in Bratislava, Trnava and Nitra) presentations and performances by media artists, digital filmmakers, video artists, musicians and programmers from Slovakia, Czech Republic, Austria and Finland.

The aim of Multiplace is to serve as a platform for the support of media art, to maintain an open and collaborative environment and to encourage critical reflection on the life in a culture shaped by technologies. Multiplace emphasizes experimentation and encourages collaboration and networking among participants in the network. It awards no prizes.

Since January 2008 the network runs the free culture server Sanchez hosting more than 80 websites of artistic and cultural initiatives worldwide.

Open organisation[edit]

From 2007 to 2009 the network was an open organisation consisting of working groups (for more details see concept and charter of the organisation). The mailing list communication of each group is publicly accessible.
