17. FESTIVAL VIZURA APERTA
CONNECTIONS - JANJINA-DRAČE-PUTNIKOVIĆ-ŽULJANA

Conception Connections – Davorka Peric
Curators: Lotte Møller, Tanja Stanić, Katarina Ivanišin Kardum and Davorka PericOrganization: Katarina Ivanišin Kardum, Tanja Stanic, Lotte Møller and Davorka Peric

This year Vizura aperta is held in the inland of Peljesac, in and around the old village of Janjina. Janjina was once a vibrant cultural center with cinema and theater, palaces, numerous houses, shops, and residents. Due to its location (in the inland of the peninsula), Janjina’s architecture, the spirit of the place and its atmosphere was preserved from urban devastation, but the inhabitants left.
During the festival, a temporary community of artists and locals will come to life again. Through several workshops in a five-day program, artists and locals will create works in the context of this year's theme COMMUNICATIONS. In the duration of the festival, we provide a transportation infrastructure and construct a series of art events in various locations on Peljesac, and invite people to join us.
In addition to abandoned houses and public spaces, the program is also taking place on board different means of transport: A bus and a boat will be used as platforms for films and video projections, exhibitions, and conversations with artists and locals. There will also be exhibitions, projections of films and workshops in Janjina, Žuljana, Putniković, and Drace, stations on the way from Dubrovnik to Pelješac, as well as places somewhere in between; in the inland and on the coast.
The work of artists and curators is a continuation of earlier artistic practices of Vizura aperta, which are characterized by an urge to emphasize and strengthen social relations. The works of art that are created in this context represent the current view of society but talk even more about the connections and relationships in a specific micro community. The involvement of the public and the local residents in temporary microcosms of artistic activities and summer gatherings is at the very core of Vizura’s artistic practices. The audience and working process are subjects of our practices.
Vizura aperta is not primarily acting politically critical, but strive to imagine a better society, and for a short period of time take the audience on a visit to a distant utopian community. By way of current art practice, and especially the topic of this year: 'Connections', we point to the possibility of sharing time and space in temporary constellations different from everyday life, which initiates the communication between people and establishes connections to new topos, the space of utopia. Where processes within an environment become an artistic act, mutual interaction becomes a medium or a link and a path to the realization of a local, temporarily improved - utopian social organization.
17th edition of Vizure aperta - Connections - cooperation with several organizations, artists and curators: Marijana Stanić – Jedinstvo Pogon, Sanja Šamanović - One take film festival, Nicole Hewitt - Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb, Rozana Vojvoda and Petra Golušić - Art Gallery Dubrovnik, Lucija Vuković and Helena Puhara, House Bukovac, Cavtat and Ivana Meštrov- Loose associations.
The guests of the festival are artists and curators from Dubrovnik, Zagreb, Copenhagen, Berlin, London, Paris, and Gdansk. As part of the program, local artists are presenting works related to Pelješac and themes of travel, and the contemporary Dubrovnik art scene will be represented in the form of texts, exhibitions, and single visual artworks. There will be a video and film program with a travel theme, the children's workshops will evolve around the topic of interrelationships, and we will touch local topics of the transit of goods and customs in the workshop of 'Pelješac pride'. Physical and intimate connections are some of the topics of this year's Vizura aperta. The selection of Danish and Swedish artists by curator Lotte Møller establishes various links between language and objects, and ways of communication with regards to the place and the inhabitants, and the activist approach is visible in the selection of London artists by Tanja Stanić who calls for collaboration - social and artistic work.
In the words of Nicolas Bourriaud, "So here we are summoned to talk about things around a duly priced drink that become a symbolic form of contemporary human relationships",* we announce the opening of the festival with the work of Siniša Labrović – Tourism.
We would like to point out the absurdity of selling out public space and the common goods that society imposed on us as necessary and normal. As a way of resistance to this we are choosing isolated communities, places in the inland of the peninsula, an island, and support the idea of relocation and travel to places of resistance or places outside of the system, better social systems. Continually repeating from year to year we want to establish their value system and bond, establish some temporary new harmony, a political construct, a life projection. Through artistic works and just by being within the community, the forms are created to communicate towards the place and its people, something like the alphabet of some other temporary language, a picture of a temporary ideal society through passive action, an oxymoron.
