Break 2.2 Festival (previously called Break 21 Festival) is an international art festival that presents young emerging artists with orientation towards urban, technologically supported arts and intermedia artistic practices that are perceived as current avantgarde. The date of the next festival is June 17-28, 2003. It will also present some special guests (world-acclaimed artists) with the aim of establishing an innovative dialogue with the young emerging artists. An important component of the festival is also the symposium with lectures by invited artists and scientists from different fields on the chosen theme.

The festival is organised by Zavod K6/4, non-profit cultural institution from Ljubljana, Slovenia, that produces, organises and promotes contemporary creativity.

Each year, the festival presents a specific theme which we find important but not adequately discussed in our society. The one chosen for the up-coming festival is "Invisible Threat".

Categories of the festival are: visual arts (comics, graphic prints, digital prints, photographs, interactive works, visual communication - "subvertising", computer-assisted art - from web art to robotics); performing arts; intermedia arts; moving pictures (films of all categories: documentaries, fiction, video art, animated films, experimental films, short films); music and sound (concerts, sound installations and intermedia performances in which sound holds the priority); architecture; applied arts; and culinary arts.

Forms of presentation include 2D exhibitions, installations and ambients, performances, actions, concerts and sound installations, fashion shows, lectures, round tables, projections and food preparation.

There are no special conditions to participate in the festival besides quality of the project and its correspondence with the chosen theme. Since "young emerging artists" is a relative concept, we leave it up to the artists themselves to decide whether or not they fit under this label. However, only art works created in the period of the last ten years will be considered.

The expenses we will provide for are mainly those connected to presentation of selected art works at the festival (costs of production of these works are not included). We can also assure accomodation and food for three days for each selected artist. However, only those artists, whose presence is absolutely crucial for presentation of their project, will have their travel expenses reimbursed. What we can also do is help the artists apply for grants to their embassies and different foundations.

- Application material will not be returned and the costs of its submission are to be covered by the sender.
- All necessary documents for temporary export/import of exhibition requisites and objects (ATA Carnet) should be assured by the authors themselves in co-operation with their local institutions.
- To avoid import tax when sending VHS cassettes and CDs, it is necessary to enclose documents, from which it is evident that the material is not intended for commercial use. For any necessary letters of confirmation, please contact the organiser.

All applying artists, who have their art projects well-presented on the Internet or can send adequate promotional material by e-mail, do not need to send any additional material by regular mail. In any case, the application procedure requires filling out the on-line application form first. Those, who will be sending additional material (i.e. video cassette, CD-rom etc.) by regular mail, should make sure that, besides the sender's name and address, project title is also marked on the package, which is to be sent to:

Zavod K6/4
Break 2.2 Festival
Kersnikova 6
1000 Ljubljana

The festival program and its locations will be announced on this web site shortly after the selection (presumably in the end of February 2003). All applying artists will also be notified about the decision concerning their application personally. Complete program will include art projects by some special guest artists and lectures at the symposium.

Reports on festival events (including photos) will also be accessible on this web site during and after the festival.

For further inquiries, please write to: info@break-festival.org- or contact the festival staff.

8th issue of the journal ARTELIER - Contemporary Art from the Balkans
Devoted to contemporary art from the Balkans, and more specifically to the sudden interest of important international curators and art institutions for this region.
Until recently, arts from the Balkans have been relegated to a cultural blur, in favour of other, more spectacular sites of exoticism.
Call for theoreticians:
Artelier will strive to answer the questions "What is Balkanic art? Is such a notion legitimate or operational?" from a range of perspectives, interrogating both self-representation and the conceptual framework underlying a significant number of international exhibitions of contemporary art.
If you have knowledge of artists or art groups whose work involves the issue of Balkanic art, or if you wish to contribute an article to our publication, please email!
Call for artists:
Our inquiry stems from the surprisingly large number of exhibitions devoted to emerging trends in the region, which attempt to define the Balkans as a homogenous, however exotic, entity, producing art that is passionate, bloody, visually aggressive and fundamentally melancholic (due to political, historical and economic factors).
How should the artists from the Balkans react to this demand for exoticism and homogeneity?
We would like to document various perspectives on the subject, so please answer the following two questions:
Do you believe there is a aesthetic specificity of contemporary art coming from the Balkans? Is your work influenced by the Balkanic cultural model?
Feel free to react to the general framework of our questions, to give examples of your work and attach 3-4 images in jpeg format, to cross borders, and to forward this questionnaire to other artists or theorists in the region.
The deadline for the answers is the 20th of December. Please send your contribution via email.
