KINEDOK SCREENING: "Sacred Dilemma"
At the first KineDok screening in 2024, we present the documentary "Sacred Dilemma," a story about a priest torn between his religious calling and family life.
About the film: Robi is a caring, educated, and devoted 37-year-old priest in a rural community in Hungary. The community leader who is loved and respected by all. But he is also a partner and father of three young children. Celibacy prevents him from fulfilling growing family obligations, so Robi faces a tough decision: leave the priesthood, risking the community's breakdown, or lead a family life in secret?
Duration: 81 minutes
Language (subtitles): Croatian & English
You can watch the trailer for the film on link
In partnership with KineDok, we present a selection from this year's film catalog in the Prostor gallery starting from September 2023 until April 2024. KineDok cycle screenings are free and open to the public, but as the number of seats is limited, reservation is required via the provided link.
ART MEET-UP / Opportunities for Artists: Education, Funding, and Mobility - January 31
Opportunities for Artists: Education, Funding, and Mobility
Through years of work with artists, we have recognized the challenges they face in finding and systematically tracking opportunities for professional development and capacity building, monitoring trends, and opportunities for work in the cultural and creative sector, including opportunities for residencies or participation in international projects.
As an organization that also implements numerous European projects mostly focused on artists and their internationalization, we organize this meet-up to present existing opportunities and resources, especially those created as part of the project "Podcast - Employ Yourself in Culture" (Erasmus+), but also to enable networking and potential new collaborations.
On this occasion, we will also host a group of artists from all over Croatia with whom we are currently collaborating as part of one of the international projects we are implementing.
The event is organized in a hybrid format, in the Space and partially via the Zoom platform. Participation in the Space does not require registration, but for online participation, registration is required.
We invite artists to apply for a residency stay at Prostor (use of studio and residence for 3 weeks) in April 2024, as part of the Geometries (learnings) program line.
The theme of Geometries (learnings) relates to theories of knowledge acquisition and production, which often include unlearning and relearning as important processes of decolonization. Geometry in mathematics refers to a branch that originally studies the position, shape, and properties of geometric bodies in space and their mutual relationship. Indirectly referring to space, we want to mark forms of knowledge acquisition and sharing and relationships of individuals found in this process with this term. Some of the questions we want to explore are: In what ways do we acquire knowledge and how do we produce it? Who participates in this process, how do we share knowledge, and what influences it? Moving away from traditional didactic methods and terminology, we want to explore ways of learning (and unlearning) in art and through artistic practices, how it manifests, and multiplies.
The residency is open to visual, inter- and trans-disciplinary artists from Croatia or with residence in Croatia, whose practices and/or proposed projects refer to the mentioned concept, and the selected artist will have travel costs, accommodation, and a fee of 600 euros covered.
Details of the Public Call are available at this link, and applications are accepted until January 31 via the form.
