The report Med I Krv 3 is an artistic endeavor that attempts to connect to a common area / Art Klinika new forms of visual art such as video art, installation, in situ installation, sound installation, light installation, land art, and environments in a common project. The goal is that projects have both conceptual and artistic consistency with the central axis of humanistic, sociological, political and research nature of the Med I Krv. The concept of coexistence, cultural exchange, and group dynamics towards a common goal are key attributes for both the selection of works and artists.
The artistic style of this exhibition, requires projects to be designed or adapted to this area and many of them will be implemented in situ, during the preparation of the report.
The criteria for selection of projects is the originality, technical excellence, the text of intent of the project, technical design, the ability to adapt to the exhibition, technical requirements, compliance schedules to bring the creative team.
H Med I Krv 3 will attempt to include in the exhibition, live music, improvisation and musical performances as in 1 and 2 starting to develop areas almost equally with the visual aspect, which is an important future goal.
Finally, the Med I Krv 3 will attempt to activate a visual way and other areas beyond the main showroom / Art Klinika creating a network of operations in various parts of the city of Novi Sad during the exhibition.
The theme of this year’s Med I Krv 3 exhibition is UTOPIA. The concept of Utopia originates from the distant past (Plato’s “Republic”, More’s “Utopia”) and over time it found its place in different areas of human activity (literature, technology, politics, ideology, science, religion…). Being the fictional place of ideal order and fulfillment of all humanistic values, Utopia represents Man’s permanent but never fully realized striving for the absolute.
Especially nowadays when we witness the turbulence within our socio-cultural system, the concept of Utopia and its relation to the reality become important issues. It is this very relationship that represents the intersection between the fictional and the real and forms an interesting field for artistic consideration and research. Given that the term Utopia is flexibly used within different contexts, the main goal of the exhibition is to reflect various artistic insights into the phenomenon, while at the same time not proposing any particular narrow framework.
