Layer house, the house of art, is hosting the festival of contemporary collage KAOS. Every summer the international collage festival displays contemporary collage art in Kranj, Slovenia. With artist-in-residence programmes, regular open calls and collaborations with various art techniques we are reaching out to the collage community worldwide. KAOS (meaning chaos in Slovene) presents fresh approaches to connect collage and other visual media, design and even music. The festival and it’s exhibition takes place every summer and presents one of the main art events in the region. KAOS aims to influence the art aesthetics of the summer happening in Kranj and to profile Kranj as a “city of collage”.

After three fruitful years, KAOS is going on a tour this year with a group exhibition of resident artists Urška Mazej, Brut Carniollus, Barbara Demšar, Andrej Štular, Eva Mlinar, Anja Kranjc in Alma House and a solo exhibition by resident artist Karel Kuhar in Memorial House of Alojz Gradnik and Ludvik Zorzut.

Producer of KAOS festival is Carnica Institute.
