MAP in MOTION Rijeka - July 1 - 5
MAP in MOTION Ljubljana - July 14, August 18, September 3
As closure of the ADRIART project and in the context of Media Arts and Practices master study program, the ADRIART partners are organizing MAP in MOTION festival. The Rijeka edition will see a public discussion day, an exhibition, a screening and other additional programme. The Rijeka edition will be organized by Academy of Applied Arts of the University of Rijeka, in collaboration with the University of Nova Gorica School of Arts, Graz University of Technology and University of Udine, as ADRIART partner institutions, will open the multilocal and multitemporal festival. The Ljubljana edition will begin on July 14 and will present a symposium, an exhibition and in late summer the premiere of a dance theatre show and a film screening.
As the second edition of Rijeka Site-specific mobility we are proposing specific location that reflects multiple dimensions of time, suggests numerous potential narratives and variety of approaches to the topic of site and its specific context. This year's location is a historical ship, Yugoslav Navy yacht Galeb. After its rich and tormentous history the ship is now located in Rijeka harbour with a perspective to become a museum/monument.
To someone who is new to ADRIART and Media Arts and Practices Programme, the term Progress Track might not mean much. To students (and mentors!) of the Programme however it is the backbone of their studies, a regular review of their work; on smaller projects, advancing their knowledge, skills and conception on and for their master project. This overall progress is mentor and peer reviewed through regular meetings, as often as possible with -remote or f2f- meetings with a group at another institution.
Upon an intriguing episode of MKN in 2013 ADRIART will be back to the pretty little island with an even more spatially focussed and micro-geographically aware course of site-specific intermedia interventions:
