24th International Multimedial Art Festival – IMAF 2022

At the beginning of this year, when we launched an open competition for the online program, the pandemic is expected to subside, which awakens new optimism. However, at the same time, a crisis in international political relations, on the soil of Eastern Europe, is becoming current. There is an aggression of the Russian military forces on Ukraine and, unfortunately, war. In such a very complicated international situation, the topic of an open competition for online video works comes to mind. We give the name “No Pandemic – No War” which is a reflection of our wish that by the beginning of the 24th International Festival of Multimedia Arts – IMAF 2022, both of these crisis events, which are very difficult for humanity, will end.
30 video works, 37 artists from 18 countries around the world, were selected at the competition for the online presentation of video works, entitled “No Pandemic – No War”. The online presentation of video works, on the official YouTube channel of the IMAF festival, will be realized between September 3rd and 8th, 2022.
In addition to the online presentation, on September 3rd, an artistic event called “Day of The Rabbit ” will be held in Odzaci for the second time, designed and led by Spike Mclarrity, an artist from United Kingdom. An open children’s art workshop will be organized as part of the “Day of The Rabbit ” manifestation on September 3rd, on the plateau of the Odzaci Sports Center.
The primary part of the 24th International Multimedia Art Festival – IMAF 2022 will certainly be the presentation of artworks, performances and live art actions. Over 30 artists from all over the world applied for the open competition, which was current at the beginning of the year. 16 artists from Italy, Greece, Germany, Spain, United Kingdom, Hungary and Serbia were selected to participate live this year. The presentation of artistic actions and live performances will be held from September 9th to 11th at two different locations in Odžaci and Novi Sad. On September 9th, the program will be held in the area of the abandoned Motel “Šumice” in Odžaci. On September 10th and 11th, there will be live art performances at the SULUV gallery in Novi Sad.
