SC continuously instigate dialogue and active exchange between Croatian and international artists/professionals through: questioning the existing concepts of individual and collective identities; exploring the nature of globalization processes; dealing with social, political and cultural issues such as the politics of public space, the consequences of transition processes, the status and forms of intimacy and systematic production of amnesia and discontinuity.

SC activities range from intermedia performances, cultural memory projects, urban-human networks, artivist projects, informal education, workshops, to lectures, conferences, urban performances, installations and exhibitions.

Press release

The Perforations Festival program spans over three cities (Rijeka, Zagreb, Dubrovnik) from October 20 – 29, 2011.

Some of the artists are Rosana Hribar / Gregor Luštek, Mala Kline, Angelo Madureira / Ana Catarina Vieira, Manuel Pelmus, Ljiljana Tasić / Dušan Bročić, Damir Bartol Indoš, Via Negativa, etc.

The Perforations Festival takes place annually in three Croatian cities; Zagreb, Rijeka and Dubrovnik and presents a range of artists working in performance art, theater, and dance, whose diverse approaches to art-making blurs the borders between these genres. While their work touches upon issues of identity (public, political, religious, ecological),  of borders redefinition and space, of a collective past, and of personal histories, most of all their work talks about the present. Highlights from this festival were presented at the LaMama E.T.C., New York, offering audiences insight into contemporary lines of artistic thinking from some of the most provocative and influential artists in the region.

This week they have published interviews with Marko Mandić, Tea Tupajić and Alen Sinkauz.
