The purpose of the multimedia festival Break is to explore new  
artistic expressions and contemporary topics and to emphasize emerging  
poetics whose artistic discourse has not yet been deep-rooted within  
firmly established standards, criteria and cultural values.

The ninth edition of the festival, Break 2.4, will take place in  
Ljubljana from the 5th to the 18th of November 2007.

We are currently seeking art projects, from established, mid-career,  
and emerging artists, that address the theme selected for the  
festival: Potemkin village.

Definitions of the Potemkin village
-Pretentiously showy or imposing fašade intended to mask or divert  
attention from an embarrassing or shabby fact or condition

hide an undesirable or potentially damaging situation
-Politically generated appearance that covers a less impressive underside
