POLYGON - Center for Cultural Research and Project Development
Kamov residency programme in 2016 begins with Polygon collective hosted by Giulia Carrabelli (I/GB), and Branka Cvjetičanin (HR), with number of other Polygon associates and guests, in the period from January 1st to 31st, 2016.
"Beside the fact we consider Rijeka as dramatic and futuristic city-scape which hardly can be found in Croatia and/or Mediterranean region, the real reason why we have chosen Rijeka for the collective residency is the connection with amaizing people and friends we met through years and who gave us inside view into vibrant and emancipated Rijeka's artistic and cultural scene. We are honored to be residents at KAMOV.
Also, we consider art as an avant-guard of some new social and/or scientific inovation, which directly, in critical and subversive way influancing social plastic and formating perception by "writing" it directly in the "code" of society narratives. Ultimately, this program, as well as all Polygon programms so far "...serve the communities in which they are carried out." (Tedlock, 2005: 160-161)." Polygon Collective
