As 2020 brought us widespread change, and influenced all of our communities – emotionally and physically, privately and professionally, creatively and financially – we have decided to move most of our program collaborations online. Apart from our shared international C-19 struggles, our home city was also hit by an M5.5 earthquake on Mar 22nd 2020 and floods on Jul 24th, significantly damaging our AKC Medika cultural venue (as well as many other Zagreb homes and buildings). Parts of the venue are damaged and/or endangered far beyond DIY repairs (e.g. Hacklab01.org, DZIU performance hall, etc.), and the owner (the City of Zagreb) is, six full months after the earthquake, yet to allow and hopefully begin the utmost *urgent* repairs, which in turn disabled us from making any /’fu:bar/ program plans similar to previous years. (More details on this are available via the host org’s web.)
Fortunately our host gallery – Siva has so far been left intact and our #fubar_expo art exhibition display as well as one local workshop will be accessible in the gallery space. But due to the earthquake and flooding damage no other aspect of the festival can extend into our physical venue space. Following these complex threads of events, we have decided to fully digitise our venue so we can construct future /’fu:bar/ events and collabs regardless of our venue’s physical (im)permanence or any political (lack of) agendas to (not) invest in maintaining non-profit urban and community culture spaces.
Our new digital, web-based exhibition space (fubar.space) is a virtual replica of our AKC Medika cultural venue, built by v3d (our curator/producer/organizer/everything, assisted by a few dear /’fu:bar/ friends&volunteers), by means of the Unity game engine.
The work shown in this virtual exhibition is an up-to-date (somewhat structured but predominantly scattered) community archive of digital&digitised media glitch art, in a broad span of visual, video, web-based, interactive, generative and sound art. Artists participating in this exhibition have volunteered their time and shared their work to support our community event, and have entrusted us to present you their hopes and struggles via additional metadata on current changes in their lives and artistic production.
Although web-based virtual spaces are not yet fully accessible to everyone (and our gallery space is not yet optimized for mobile phones), it was the closest we could get to democratizing gallery space interaction and currently the most immersive way to share our collaborative efforts. We hope your experience in viewing this gallery is a constructive one.
