Exciting new program at the Youth Center - here's what awaits you in December
We present an overview of the rich program at the Youth Center for December, which, as always, will be marked by contemporary, progressive, and urban content. Considering the end of the year, the festive atmosphere will not be lacking.
On the first Saturday of December, join the birthday radio marathon and open day at the radio space of KLFM (4th floor on the south side of the Youth Center, above the Classroom). On Saturday, December 2nd, KLFM will be live in the studio from 2 PM to 12 AM with an all-day eclectic music and talk program in a free style. KLFM opens the doors to the new space for all listeners, friends, and those interested in radio activation.
The last edition of this year's program, Roof Theme on Monday, December 5th, will host Ivica Mitrović from the Department of Visual Communication Design at the Arts Academy of the University of Split. Mitrović is part of the team and curator of the discursive program of the Croatian Pavilion at this year's 18th Venice Biennale, an international exhibition of architecture, and co-editor of the book "Design in Coexistence – Reflections on Systemic Changes." The program starts at 6:30 PM in the Classroom space.
The exhibition program in December is quite rich. On Thursday, December 7th, an exhibition of works from the Department of Visual Communication Design DVK 13-23 will open in the MKC Gallery. The next day, December 8th at 7 PM, the exhibition of Tanja Minarik will open in the Kocka Club Gallery. The multi-channel video installation "I think it's a group of people flying kites in the rain" is a docufiction work that, through artificial intelligence algorithms, reconstructs a year in the artist's life based on mobile phone photos. It processes themes of identity, migration, and belonging through sets of text, images, and videos.
On Thursday, December 21st, at 7 PM, the exhibition of Helena Janečić "Erotic Drawings" will open in the Kocka Club Gallery. The exhibition will be accompanied by the presentation of the author's book of erotic drawings, silk-screen printing workshops with motifs from the drawings, and a musical program.
At the end of the month, on December 28th, at 7 PM, the ARBYTE 2.0 exhibition will open in the MKC Gallery. It is an interdisciplinary collaboration of artists gathered in the Arbajt Collective that began in 2021, focusing on the relationship between art and work to break myths about the romanticized view of artistic work characterized by precarious working conditions.
How does movement sound? How do our muscles sound? These are the primary questions addressed by the dance performance "Together We Sound," which you can watch on Tuesday, December 12th, in the Youth Center Amphitheater. Admission is free. Choreography and performance: Koraljka Begović and Nastasja Štefanić Kralj.
On Saturday, December 16th, at 6 PM, the "4th Children's Open Stage" will take place. It is an event where children, young artists, present their creative work in the field of performing arts for up to 10 minutes. The program consists of several short acts performed by individuals or groups. Those under 18 with a performance character are invited to enrich the program with their creativity, and they should contact the Circus Collective association no later than December 9th to participate.
