Since its reconceptualization in 2014, Fotopub Festival, which is led by young artists and curators, aims to recognize the qualities of emerging artists and attempts to open the space for independent research, experimentation and unconventional curatorial gestures. Fotopub has since become an established international platform that promotes, stimulates and develops the freshest artistic activity across contemporary arts and cultures.
Entering its fifth edition, Fotopub continues to extend the artistic, curatorial and geographical dialogues. Once again, the festival brings together international artists and curators, whose practice is located in the gaps and overlaps of contemporary visual arts, new media, and technology. This year Fotopub presents a series of newly commissioned projects, that critically disturb, question and react to the artistic and socio-political rituals, power structures, antagonisms and processes of knowledge production.
From 30 July to 4 August 2018, Fotopub will organise a series of formal and informal events, including 7 exhibitions, 3 projects, evening talks, curated music programme and the Fotopub Portfolio Review, which will bring to Novo Mesto well-known and respected artists, curators, editors, publishers, gallerists, and directors from the international art world. This year, 25 artists and curators from 12 countries (Canada, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Lithuania, Slovenia, The Netherlands, Ukraine, United Kingdom and the United States) will present their work exclusively in the unconventional and/or abandoned spaces across the city centre, with site specific installations and performances happening across the streets of Novo Mesto.
