About

Respublika! is a cluster of an arts festival, two exhibitions and several seminars that translates the principles of community media in creative practice, in order to reflect on media, democracy and its participatory component, to analyze the (de)centralisation of power in contemporary societies, and to showcase art projects that use participatory mechanisms to produce art projects, working with, and empowering members of one or more communities. Respublika! is multi-sited and multi-genre. It aims to tap into the creative reservoirs of community media, civil society organisations and social collectives (and their members); but also of artists that are committed to the basic principles of participatory community communication.

Respublika! consists of two main exhibitions, a festival and a series of seminars. The first exhibition, Open Community – Open Networks, takes place from 4 November 2017 to 2 December 2017. The second exhibition, Participation Matters, will take place from 8 December 2017 to 19 January 2018. The Festival will run in parallel with the first week of the second exhibition, from 8 to 16 December 2017.

Respublika! incorporates art projects that relate to (at least) one of the following two objectives, which translate the principles of community media in creative practice:

  • to reflect on media, democracy and its participatory component, analysing the (de)centralisation of power in contemporary societies,
  • to use participatory mechanisms to produce art projects, working with, and empowering members of one or more communities.
