KIBLIX 2010 festival closed, 18.–28.11.2010, Maribor, Slovenija
On Sunday 28 November, KIBLIX 2010 festival closed with the presentation of a tower made of recycled computers functioning in harmony with an ecosystem of plants and algae. Marvelling at the results of the Biomodd workshop and enjoying the sounds of dj Metka and dj Djuza, we talked about the new year, a new edition of the festival and new encounters with artists from Africa, Asia, Americas and Europe.
Events between 18/11 and 28/11 in numbers:
The number of visitors to Kibela Gallery and the exhibition “Waste – Technology Minus” almost reached a thousand. During the festival and the workshop, there were fifteen public guided tours of the exhibition. Openings in Kibla traditionally attract large crowds. The very first day, the launch of Biomodd workshop with the opening of the exhibition and Kiblix festival were attended by about hundred people.
This year, Days of Curiosity were aligned in time and theme to the main festival topic. Presentations of professions were attended by more than thousand secondary school students in two days, and they also visited the exhibition and the workshop. The symposium on HIV/AIDS with participants form Europe and Africa raised the questions on assistance as well as the technology in media featured in projects of cooperation with Africa.
The performative factor by Simon Berz and his performance ROCKINGDESK in Kino Udarnik earned him a massive round of applause. The closing open(fashion)code performance OPENWEAR featuring collaborative clothing and serving as the formal closing event of the joint festival platform, filled up the hall of Kino Udarnik.
Together with some colleagues of HAIP and MFRU festivals, Kiblix artists were kindly invited by Cirkulacija team of Rog centre, Ljubljana, to make a working-socializing trip to Ljubljana. They visited Cirkulacija 2 on Saturday and enjoyed excellent food.
And of course. We shall read, hear from and see each other next year.
