ATTITUDE – video /short & experimental film/ photography festival.

Festival ATTITUDE which is going to live through its second realization this year, will be opened on 24th of December with the exhibition of photographs and the projection of videos at Cultural Center “Magaza”. All selected works are focused on the problem which as a concept of this project has been posed: The artist ’s attitude is the most authentic expression of what is going on in the society. In a world where the individual is rejected because of the power of any kind and in a world in which all spheres of interest are focused on globalization, the power of the artist could be the strongest weapon against it. The artist him(her)self could be identified through his(her) own act of creating as the most important one, considering the fact that the new visions and attitudes are changing the image of the future world.

The organizer of “Attitude” is the Center for Contemporary Public Arts “Elementi” from Bitola, Macedonia. It is an organization which exists since 1992 as an art group and since 2002 as an association which organizes international exhibitions of contemporary art in the country and abroad. In their work (as artists and organizers) they try not to make a big difference between creating an artwork and organizing an event. On the contrary, they intend to connect these two terms and to bridge the gap between curators and artists. Their work (artistic and curatorial) deeply penetrates into the social life and always provokes the individual who is captured in its own unification. Their work opens the specific question of miscommunication, netting and the position of the subject in the era of digital technology. They create a poetic which aims to emphasize the specific sensibility of the human in a relation with the deep alienation and misunderstanding.

Selectors of the festival “Attitude” are: Biljana Petrovska Isijanin/Mirna Arsovska/Ljupco Spirovski Isijanin – ELEMENTI (Macedonia), Luca Curci – International ART EXPO (Italy), Sasa Janjic – REMONT Gallery Belgrade (Serbia and Montenegro), Margarethe Makovec – ROTOR Gallery, Graz (Austria), Alenka Gregoric – SKUC Gallery – Ljubljana (Slovenia), Basak Senova – NOMAD Istanbul (Turkey).
The project is mainly supported by “Pro Helvetia” – Skopje (Swiss Cultural Program in Macedonia). It is partly supported by USA Embassy in Macedonia. It has media & technical support by TERA Television. Sponsor for the opening: BOVIN Negotino.

The exhibition of photographs will be opened until January 20th 2006. On 28th of December 2005 the  project Rooms by Danish group N55 will be presented as a part of this event – Festival Attitude is trying to avoid the established activities such are round tables, conferences or workshops. The N55 project Rooms which is actually a part of their long-term project which they have been presenting in many places of the world, will be a substitution for the lack of Attitude activities, intentionally avoided. N55 will establish a room which during a month could be used by anybody for any non-commercial use, such as discussions and production of non-commercial works, initiating the person to think about the logical relation between the persons and the rights of the persons. This idea is very close to the concept of this festival which expresses the different conception towards some established criteria in this kind of manifestations, for example an abandonment of awards. But  at the same time it keeps some of the entire attributes, such is the selection of works.  Besides the selectors, the invited artists also take part at the selection of works and by this they approach the concept of this event even before their work would be shown.
