The joint events are happening under the title Red Dawn above the City of Women. Check out the full program here.
“As far as this year’s festival image is concerned, our long-term designer Anna Ehrlemark decided to make use of the barbed flower symbol so as to pay homage to our co-operation with the Uprising Social Workers (Vstajniške socialne delavke). In March this year we launched a so-called Wall of Shame – a blog collecting misogynist, sexist, and homophobic statements of famous Slovene personalities. The fact that intellectuals and politicians can afford to say anything without consequences, without punishment, is ‘žabotno’, or sad indeed. (…) The scissors on the posters are, however, not for them; rather, they represent our desire to cut the world out in our shape.”
