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 
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.
