The 19th-century residence, with granaries, a mill, stables, and administrative buildings, is located just a few kilometers from the Danube, forming the natural border between Romania and Bulgaria, and about 70 kilometers from Serbia. The journey to this place provides the perfect opportunity to clear your mind from everyday life. CetateArtsDanube, founded by Dr. Joana Grevers on her family’s ancestral property in Cetate, offers a rich and comprehensive experience – visually, aesthetically, intellectually, culturally, and even gastronomically. Joana Grevers has meticulously restored and rebuilt different parts of the property, creating a harmonious atmosphere that combines isolation and abundance, thanks to nature and the Fundatia Joana Grevers. This year’s participating artists included Mihail Cosuletu, Stefan Radu Crețu, Albert Kaan, Adina Mocanu, Stefan Petrica, and Miki Velciov.

In this 11th edition of the annual summer residency, each artist has made a valuable contribution to this place of great energy and inspiration. Their works seamlessly blend with nature and architecture, much like nature itself has integrated with the architecture here. If only more places could be created with such harmony and mutual respect between living and non-living elements… – Victoria Dejaco (Graz)
