AKCIJA na festivalu ART GENERATOR u Makedoniji
“ART GENERATOR” is a place for dialogue among communities across the region, enabling people to see social issues and their impact through art. This platform will serve as a medium for sharing stories across physical and ideological borders. During 4 days with variety of daily events and wide range of venues, the Platform will incorporate film, performance, music, open public installations, workshops and lectures addressing the issue of regional mobility.
This year’s theme is: “Manifesto on Wheel: Art-Mobility Chiasma*”. This thought is the reference point for each activity. The theme in-circulates desire and passion of artists and youth for traveling and cultural dialog, that becomes an agenda in the Balkan region because of the political, economical and social isolation of the countries. The artist perception and notion of the concept of mobility will be the element for building the “Manifesto on Wheel”, anticipating the crossovers where everybody meet and share.
“Manifesto on Wheel” invites the artists and the visitors to become fellow investigators tracing connections between hidden realities, unfamiliar stories and images, partial information, and incomplete maps of territories marked by loss, violence, mourning, social struggle and resistance. Searchers may find evidence of (in) visible networks of solidarity, refuge, and resistance created by different groups of people whose lives, cities and countries have been profoundly changed by forces of recent changes in the region and the globalization.
