The “Secondary Archive – Platform for Women Artists: V4, Albania, Kosovo & Serbia Extension” is made possible thanks to the Visegrad+ Grants, focused on cooperation with the Western Balkans region.


The Secondary Archive collects the personal statements of female artists and serves as an international source of information about Central and Eastern European female art for both art professionals and the wider audience. The project has already gathered the nearly 250 statements of artists from the Visegrad region and is currently working on the enlargement of the archive with artists from Ukraine and Belarus.
