Žitomlin space at the banks of the Danube River (lower Dorćol)
This year, Mikser festival is envisioned as a regional festival of creativity and innovation with a unique “mixture” of contents, which promote Belgrade, and the Balkans as a leading area of this part of Europe. Festival targets professionals but also the general public, mostly the younger population. It takes place from the 25th till the 29th of May, at the banks of Danube, lower Dorcol, at Žitomlin space. The program consists of several segments: Expo zone, Contact zone, Talent zone, Art zone, Education zone, Party zone, and an Open Air Cinema.
O3ONE is one of the participants, presenting its projects in the Art zone. Inside the first silo, within the space allocated to O3ONE, four projects will be presented: Tattoo room by, Dragan Vojvodić, Home Sweet Home, by Milan Janić, Futurum, by Ines Sunko with cooperation by O3ONE project. In the first part, the public will have a chance to see an O3ONE retrospective, through video works by artists who were guests of the gallery during its existence of almost six years.
Dragan Vojvodić is an artist who had an exhibition at O3ONE last February titled Tattooed room. The project was warmly received by the general public and critics alike, it deals with the phenomenon of tattoo which is used for promotion of fascist ideologies. Through pictures, interventions on walls and video works, the artist gives his answer to this question. The aim of the project HOME SWEET HOME, as a design and communication initiative, is to increase awareness about the problems faced by the homeless.
Milan Janić realized this project in cooperation with O3ONE in April this year. The project is going to be shown around Europe. At the Design Expo, only one part of the project is going to be presented – video work and specially designed cardboard shelters which serve to remind us that no person should be without a home.
The fourth project – Futurum, is a work by young author Ines Sunko. With this multimedia project, the author depicts the future as it would be without recycling, a dystopian atmosphere of space. Such an atmosphere is a vision of a futuristic society developed in a negative version of utopia.
