F.A.C.K. is open mobile indisciplinary collaborative transient (con)temporary platform, launched in 2012 in Cesena (Italy), for experimentation and research in alternative organizational and production models for arts and culture. Self-menaged by indipendent artists, curators, researchers and technicians FACK questions the dominant art system and its institutions, as well as the function of art and the role of the artist within our liquid society striked by a profound structural crisis.

FACK BORDERS > OPEN CALL- fack msuv NEW mUSEeum 2016
Come at the general FACK assembly on 30 July for preparation of the FACK BORDER MEETING on 3 - 4 August
2016 – Museum of Contemporary Arts of Vojvodina (MSUV), Novi Sad (Serbia)
From 25 July to 5 august different activities
will take place within the 2016 FACK MSUV event set as an experimental social-artistic
platform and as a TAZ - Temporary Autonomous Zone within, and around, the
building of the Museum of Contemporary Art of Vojvodina in Novi Sad (Serbia).
The coming FACK MSUV event is announced in parallel with the exhibition of a
collective visual answer on fences and man “COLD WALL” http://www.msuv.org/program/2016-07-08-hladni-zid-eng.php
, which opens at MSUV on 8. July and which will at a certain point flow into
the event/TAZ. Same as during the previous 2014 FACK MSUV event (http://www.msuv.org/program/fack-msuv-izvodjenje-muzeja-kao-zajednickog-dobra.php)
the museum building will again be open for different interventions and uses
based on participation, solidarity, cooperation, free-exchange and self-organization:
artists, activists, researchers, and all interested persons who wish to
intervene are free to take part and to realize activities and meetings, to use
the given time-space frame for experimenting and questioning the dominant
system of cultural and artistic production, of neoliberal work, social, urban
and migrant policies and other related issues among which the right to the city.
We call for organizing
on 3 - 4 August, within the frame of the 2016 FACK MSUV event, an
international FACK BORDERS MEETING against closed borders policy and in support
All interested individuals, activists and
volunteers, independent groups and other realities active in and around no
border movement, working in direct solidarity and in support to migrants’ struggle
are invited to take part in FACK BORDERS meeting. FACK BORDERS proposes to use
the museum in any way that might be useful for their struggle and activities, for
networking, work meetings, discussions, workshops, presentations and assemblies.
This is the occasion for an experiment in NEW USE of a cultural institution, by
opening it to the migrants’ and revolted EU citizens’ struggle for the freedom
of movement and against closed borders policy.
One of the questions we intend to tackle within
the FACK BORDERS meeting is how contemporary artistic production relates to the
suject of migrations, or better scandalous EU border and migrant policies. We
invite both artists and activists to reflect on sometimes problematic use of
migrants related thematic in art projects and works and on possible ways of eluding
and subverting the mechanisms of capture by the art system and the art market.
We propose to gather for a general assembly
on Saturday 30 July at 18pm at MSUV (Dunavska 37, 21000 Novi Sad, Srbija) in
order to organize the activities of the FACK BORDER meeting that will take place in the following
days of 3 and 4 August. In case we need more time for preparation and realization
of the proposed activities we can extend the meeting into the following days of
5 - 6 August.
About logistic. FACK MSUV is an experiment in
alternative use of a public cultural institution. The programming, organizing
and managing of the event is a collective process carried by the participants
in collaboration with the museum staff - we will share time and space deciding
together how to use the museum and how to realize proposed activities. The
modest budget on disposal will be used for accommodation of participants and
for common meals in the museum. We will prepare and consume meals in an
improvised kitchen settled in the museum garden.
