/’fu:bar/ is a yearly festival gathering focused on electronic error-themed reinterpretative multimedia art. The week-long festival starts on the first Saturday of October and hosts an artist residency program, showcases diverse talks, workshops, performances and an inclusive group exhibition, set up at AKC, Pierottijeva 11, Zagreb (Croatia).
/’fu:bar/ is an open and free glitch art event, aimed at local communities in a physical space, and accessible to transnational communities in networked space, while including diverse local, regional and international authors and their collaborations.
In 2020, due to the global crisis and the earthquake that hit Zagreb in March damaging our accommodation capacity, we have decided to cancel the artist residency program and move the international aspect of the event – online. We’re looking for video / text / website / livestream / interactive glitch themed workshops, thematic lectures and network-based performances to be presented online in the context of an international visual arts exhibition and the local artists’ AFK presentations.
The theme of /’fu:bar/ 2020 is broadly set around the ideas and actions of CHANGE in our various international contexts, communities and troubles. Do you have an on-topic performance / talk / workshop / hybrid format you’d love to show, discuss or play? Please do join!
The call is open to all and any #glitch_art file hackers, code breakers, web creepers or media explorers, either with an on-topic submission or general glitch-based art-centered performative / educational / discursive work.
Deadline: July 31st 2020
Selection announcement: mid August 2020
Due to travel restrictions this year we will be providing artist fees instead of travel support.
Festival events will be open and free to the general public, as well as archived and networked.

The event is organized by the AKC Attack association in collaboration with the Format C Artist Organization. It’s supported by a number of volunteers, collaborators and participating artists, as well as media partners, the SKART Gallery, the Glitch Artists Collective fam, and the free weekly newsletter Glitchet. The festival program is financially supported by the “Kultura Nova” Foundation, the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia, the City of Zagreb and various glitch art supporters.
