Deltakelse er en vesentlig komponent i mange av verkene som presenteres under festivalen. Noen av verkene gir uttrykk for hvor skjørt, vakkert og kaotisk kollektivitet og samarbeid kan være, mens i andre verk er deltakelse et resultat av kunstnerens spesifikke interesser.
Hvordan kan vi overskride en polariserende debatt og sette fokus på ulike tilnærminger til publikums posisjon og potensial i visuell kunst og scenekunst? Med denne samtalen tar vi sikte på å åpne et rom for en kritisk utforskning.
