The current EMAF TOURPROGRAM is titled “Social Arts”.
It presents along with the prize-winning works by the Canadian Arts-Activist Istvan Kantor (Operetta) and the Anti-War-Animation “Painting Paradise” by Barbara Hlali a couple of works dealing with social and environmental problems. As well in focus is the situation of artists in our society today. “Ivo Burokvic” proves with his persiflage about the demands of the Art-Market that this can be very entertaining. Aesthetics and techniques of the works shown reach from HD-Computer-animation (Westcoast) to dramaturgical perfect (Dance-Theatre-) Constructions (Burlesque and Naufrage) to rough YouTube style (Rehab).
You can book the program for a flatrate of just 150.- Euro. So it is interesting for smaller venues, galleries, museums and clubs, which want to present high quality media-arts as well.
The program consists of:
