Today at Mikser festival: exhibition opening of video artworks by About and around curating group at 7 p.m.

Tonight at 7 p.m., the exhibition opening of video artworks by About and around curating group will take place at Mikser festival (Braće Krsmanović 1a).

The participants of the project had an opportunity to make a video (duration 90'') and, according to their own criteria and technical skills, give voice to one of the following topics:

- the position of a curator in Serbia today, or the present state of culture in Serbia
- Savamala space - through art, urbanism, history, (lack of) perspectives...

All video artworks will be merged into one, integral video lasting approximately 13 minutes. 
After the opening screening, the participants will join a small workshop - by random choice, each one will get a chance to express a critical opinion of another's work in five sentences. The time available for writing short texts will be 15 minutes.

The group video artwork, together with video Waiting (dir. Jelena Micić, 2012, 10'35'') which is presented from the opening of the festival, will be presented as an installation in the working space of About and around curating at Mikser festival 2012.

By using a media "reserved" for the artists, the both artworks represent the position and a statement of young and future curators of today.
