ARMY OF THE INDIVIDUAL
Meeting with Nástio Mosquito
With the curator of the Army of the Individual Idiom we will talk about the program concept, the artist's own work and Angola where the artist was born in 1981. Nástio Mosquito creates both video and audio-visual installations as well as stand-ups, happenings, and politically involved performances, in which he touches upon the themes of identity, violence and dignity. He is one of the most charismatic artists in his generation. The debate will be hosted by Michał Nogaś.
FORUM 2019: A culture of war in a time of peace
The Forum for discussions in Wolności Square is where we broadly talk about the main festival theme. This year, our focus is on the relationship between war and peace. Statistics show that we are living in the safest and least brutal period in history, but despite this, war is not an abstract or unreal concept at all. What form does war take in this most peaceful of ages? How do we define this state of war/peace? What will future wars be like?
We invite you to meet writers, philosophers, political scientists and people who have participated in and witnessed contemporary warfare.
The discussions are accompanied by staged readings of excerpts from a selection of books.
