AKTO 5 - regional contamporary arts festival / 11-15.08. / Bitola, MK


Bitola, MK, various venues
August 11-15

is a regional festival for contemporary arts which includes visual arts, performing arts, music and theory of culture. 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 program of the festival is 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 the standard location (galleries, museums, theatres) used for presenting art, and their setting up in new location.
Re-moving of the pieces into new location transforms the piece itself (according to the parameter space).


THE SECOND CONCEPT is the topic of the festival.
The topic of Akto_5 festival is Weddings.
The artistic pieces (according to the parameter weddings) are going to be presented in two categories: artistic pieces that have wedding as a basic starting point and pieces that are represent a transformation of an already finished artistic forms.


Two parameters cause the transformation, the new space and the topic of the festival. The "new" act is being transformed in relation to its basic form. The "new" piece is transformed from its basic form. It has new statics and dynamics.


The three main parameters of the festival, space, topic, transformation define the motives to make an artistic piece, which are not formal nor stylistic, but are personal and emotional, precisely defined from the context in which they are made.
