The “open port” of art, into which will Frankivsk turn in a middle of June, everyone can visit. That’s why it is called open. Therefore everyone will have the opportunity to become a guest or a participant. We will show and talk about everything. The visual part will include interpenetration moment – in the exhibition will take part works  that will be presented in a  month at the Biennale «Ostrale» in Dresden under the slogan Re_form. Reform can be interpreted as «re-» and «form», i.e. shape change, the content change or essence of something.

Works of artists from Germany, Holland, Russia, Romania, Georgia, Japan, Belarus and Ukraine will create original confrontations. Artistic. About politics, way of life, money, beauty and deformity, about memory, history and design coming, about what a modern person lives by and what failing her.

In the modern world it began usual not to know history, not to remember the past, or originally to interpret events that were preceded to present time. Town’s history bashfully forgot partially the founders of city from the sort of Pototskykh – today small that testifies to their stay in the once built fortress. The complex of building “Pototskykh Place” rather reminds unsuccessful parody on palazzo, especially since a combat hospital was here situated. Territory of a complex is now closed for free access, building does not look closely, collapse, fall into a decay, and part of territory is exploited under a parking place. Emptiness of oblivion was filled by the sea. Frankivsk seceded from Stanislaviv a sea and grew into a port. Ethics is transferable into aesthetics.

The festival is not only a holiday, which is always with you, but also a platform for the formation of today’s issues as well as the eternal, place matching aesthetics catalyst forming ideologies and myths. Try this.
