INDIGO FESTIVAL
Nobody Cares?
11. 9.–13. 9. 2019

The fouth edition of Indigo Festival will explore topics of indiffence and insensitivity towards problems that surround us, fueled by constant media battle for attention and everyday indignation over pressing issues. Robbed of power and solid ground beneath our feet, we are too tired to care for anything or anyone. All we want is peace and quiet. We withdraw to detachment, vegging out in privacy, until someone knocks on our door. Personal integrity and the possibility of solidarity have been taken away from us, while, squinting over our bedsheets, we gloomily observe world events or simply lock our hearts away to guard them from the evil. Should we care? Perhaps the last stanza of the European anthem Ode to Joy exposes some of these forthcoming antagonisms: "Yes – he too who but one being on this earth can call his own! He who ne’er was able, weeping stealeth from this league alone!" (translated from the German original by William F. Wertz)

A wide programme of exhibitions, performances, concerts, workshops, lectures and panel talks with acknowledged artists and theorists, dealing with the topic of indifference, will take place in the traditional Indigo quarter of public institutions and NGOs at Trg francoske revolucije square and surrounding streets.
