30.09.2014 / OFF_FESTIVAL BRATISLAVA 2014 (07 - 21 NOVEMBER)

The current, fifth year of the OFF_festival brings a revolutionary manifesto. Its topic is expressing an idea as a declaration of a journey towards the wished objective. The manifesto as a sense and pretext for a revolt, for a strength, which can change the world - the idea contained in individual projects of exhibiting artists and their curators is connected to a common voice, calling for a change.

Exhibitions of the OFF_festival 2014 refer to a free artistic expression and state an opinion, which highlights the need for reform in the cultural, political and society-wide or personal context.
