Since its reconceptualization in 2014, Fotopub Festival strives to recognize the qualities of emerging artists and create a 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.
In its seventh edition, Fotopub Festival will continue to extend artistic, curatorial and geographical dialogues. Once again, the festival will bring together international artists and curators, whose practice is located in the gaps and overlaps of contemporary visual arts, new media, and technology.
From 3 to 8 August 2020, Fotopub will organise a series of formal and informal events, including at least 6 exhibitions, a curated music residency programme, a series of panel talks and the Fotopub Portfolio Review, which brought well-known and respected artists, curators, gallerists, publishers and journalists from the international art world to Novo Mesto. The work of various international artists and curators from will be showcased exclusively in unconventional and/or abandoned spaces around the city centre, with site specific installations and performances taking place on the streets of Novo Mesto.
The programme of the festival will be published in May 2020.
