In 2006, CiTu launched its network to connected creation: In-Out, with a series of exhibitions, Outlab, In-Out X.0, several workshops and numerous creations. Today, In-Out evolved into The Art Collider, an open online network. It has been considerably improved with updated infrastructure and new authoring tools.

The Art Collider is both a tool and a unique creative space. The network has no boundaries and the scope only minimal constraints. With the participation of artists and reputable organizations the Art Collider has reached international dimension:


The link developed with the “Sebastian 2” project allowed to establish a close collaborations between the CiTu and the San Francisco Art Institute, giving The Art Collider a truly international scope and and resulted in reaching the critical mass. Kunstuniversität Linz, School of Visual Arts New York, Cornell University Ithaca NY and UQAM Montréal have join the project since.

From April 7 to 16 a number of events connected via The Art Collider will take place around the world in collaboration with the partners and the artists involvement
