Samos YoungArtists Festival

The concept

Art Space Pythagorion

The Schwarz Foundation is a non-profit organization that supports contemporary cultural production. While based in Germany, the Foundation has a branch in Athens and operates an exhibition space, Art Space Pythagorion, on the island of Samos, where it also organizes an annual international, transcultural music festival, Samos Young Artists Festival.
In light of the fact that Europe is experiencing significant transformations which call for new ways of thinking, the Foundation's activities aim to contribute to this process of re-evaluation and re- thinking the continent, and particularly South-East Europe and its relation to its surroundings within a global context.
The Foundation supports projects that relate to this geo-political space, including artistic productions, concerts, publications and events in Greece, Germany and other European countries, residencies for artists and musicians on Samos, a curatorial fellowship, symposiums, exhibitions and publications.
