Program 2024

13-23.06 Art_Inkubator

Freeing | Letting go | Release | Liberation
Fotofestiwal 13-23 June 2024

The curatorial part of the upcoming festival will be dedicated to the process of freeing and liberation. The artists invited to the 2024 edition will present works that take up the challenge of breaking free from outdated socio-political structures, breaking free from traumatic past and inner pressures, as well as breaking free from visual contexts and boundaries that seem to limit our perception. 

In the process of creating the programme, we have also been doing our best to free ourselves of curatorial boundaries and work with the loose and broad idea that we treat more as a patron of this year’s edition rather than a title or a strict theme, as we hope this will also be a new and refreshing experience for our audience.
