THE 2009 ATTITUDE FESTIVAL
26 – 30 JUNE 2009 BITOLA MACEDONIA
CENTER FOR CONTEMPORARY PUBLIC ARTS BITOLA MACEDONIA
This is the 5th time that we are organising The Attitude Festival in the city of Bitola. Each year there were numerous artists participating, from all over the Europe and World.
The selected video art and experimental film will be shown in public spaces this year, in front of the banks within the city, as a reaction to financial crises and globalization of the financial market:
“The capital does not create the poorness but invents it. This system which is threatened not only by the energy crises but much more by the individual crises, encouraged and leaded from the connection of material luxury , mental disaster and abuse of the necessity to propagandize the importance of the economy, portrays that the society is being directed towards the discourse of general catastrophe. In this stadium of social reality in which the hyper-reality is becoming the reality, the manipulation of truth is imposing as absolute focus. This focus on the problem which leads us to the problem resisting of capitalistic domination, at the same time gives us the possibility to fight against it, not accepting it as a moral but also not as an unmoral , but above all creating a net of signs which would direct towards displacing the gravitation of the reality and that would comes up into the loss of the power concentrated in the governance. But if this kind of disarranging the historical myth would release us from the ominous and false function of the things which are leading us to the loss of real essence? Where the new seduction begins – through power of the money or through the power of the artwork?”
The Attitude Festival has collaborated with numerous cultural organizations (Art Expo Italy, Prima Centre Berlin/Skopje, The One Minutes Foundation Amsterdam, EAF Adelaide, Remont Belgrade, SKUC Galerija Ljubljana, Museum of Contemporary Art Skopje Macedonia, Franz West Studio Wien, Visura Aperta Zagreb and others).
