Croatian artists at AKTO Festival for Contemporary Arts in Macedonia


time: 11.8.2009. - 16.8.2009.
place: Bitola, Macedonia
AKTO_4 Festival for Contemporary Arts was held from 11th to 166th August in Bitola, Republic of Macedonia. The Festival includes visual and performing arts, music and theory of culture, and this year artists and curator from Croatia took part.

The main objective of AKTO festival is to open the cultural frameworks of a modern society through ‘recomposing’ and redefining them in a new context.

The programme of the festival was based on two concepts: The first concept is space / location. Locations have been transformed in terms of their previous meanings. The basic idea of the Festival is art pieces to come out of their standard location (galleries, museums, theatres) used for presenting arts, and their setting up in new locations. Re-moving of the pieces into new locations transforms the piece itself to the parameter space). The second concept is the topic of the festival.
