Army of the Individual is the theme of the 29th edition of Malta Festival Poznań, which is going to take place between 21 and 30 June. Our curator Nástio Mosquito is working on a project that will premiere at the festival and the recruitment process begins now.
THE AIM OF THE PROJECT
Nástio Mosquito wants to create an audiovisual happening entitled Army of the Individual. To make it possible, he is reaching out to all people around the world to share their family video archives which show the birth of their child. It’s a moment Mosquito calls ‘the purest manifestation of human dignity’. We ask you on Nástio’s behalf to submit video recordings documenting the delivery and birth of your child. The recordings will become part of an 8-minute video created by the artist which will be showcased as an audiovisual happening at the Malta Festival. The aim of the happening is to illustrate a concept that is an amalgamation of the notions of ‘equality’ and ‘democracy’
The happening itself will take place on 22 June at 8:30 PM, one single time and simultaneously live and online at Poznań’s main square and many screens in all possible locations, both in Poland and abroad.
