TITLE: 24/7, curatorial workshop

WORKSHOP LEADER: Ivana Meštrov

CONTENT: 7 days of creation is a site-specific, time based and framed manifestation. During the 7 days reserved to the creative research and discoveries in collective conditions, the time lapse has a specific role. The activity is connected to here and now. Fluidly passing across different festival formats and activities, ranging from one day exhibitions, work in progress or different evening programs of interdiciplinary type, as a temporary community-publlic, authors, and participants-we participate at the same time in the repoduction, reception and co-creation of art works and wide range of projects.
The workshop 24/7 deals with precisely with the notion of time. Ways of experiencing time in the art system, not necessarily only through projects and deadlines, but questioning how a curatorial projects is dealing with time, or what does it mean when the time is not only an art medium but also a topic, as well as the form of translation. All this will be done in direct relation to the program of the actual Festival.
The participants of this workshop will, during this time,get to know several different positions; the one that listents, reads, communicates, reports, type and time transfers events, as writer, critic, and as well as accurator, that reflects all of this positions, momentarily, in one.
