Have we ever read an image? Have we ever been surprised when what we saw communicated something else with respect to its form? We are daily surrounded by a violent media language, in which often form and content collapse on themselves exposing the emptiness of both. Faced with messages that are limited to the question and answer and the reduction of complexity in a “pro” and “against”, we feel we are something else, we want to say more and we know how to do it in another way. In these years we have given space to self-productions to talk about oneself, but we strongly believe that they are the means by which it is possible to circulate a message, an idea, an action from the bottom. The tool is the engine of multiple actions. In a world that forces the binary nature of thought and the simplistic choice between “option 1” and “option 2”, our answer is OLÉ 3: towards third ways of communicating. How to tell reality when its interpretation is dominated by a superficial language, victim of simplifications and banalities? We want to try to do it together, through a lateral language to be investigated, between the game and the enigma, the word and the image. It is not enough to read a message to have it understood, words are not enough to communicate.
This is REBUS, and what we say is hidden in a design that may seem far from it! __________
Participation with or without stands is free, no financial contribution is required and no percentage or other on any receipts.
The festival will be held in the self-managed social space XM24, via Fioravanti 24 – Bologna, on days 24-25-26 May 2019
Friday 24 from 17:00 to 02:00,
Saturday 25 from 14:00 to 1:00,
Sunday 26 from 12:00 to 19:00.
Flexible closing times for exhibitors, free to stay or disassemble before. year the call of Olé is open and non-selective, we allow ourselves to make a choice only to exhibit self-productions that remain within the festival (so press, illustration, publishing, zines …).
To help us with the organization, we ask you to sign up WITHIN May 8th by sending an email to email@example.com with: single / collective name – e-mail – cell (optional) – site / blog / file (something let us know what your banquet will be, max 20MB) – short presentation (max.500 characters). What do you need for your banquet? We are a self-managed space, let’s manage together! At Xm there is lighting even in the evening, but if you need lamps and extensions it is better to take them with you. If you can also bring your own table we ask you to specify it in the mail. This year we would like to give more space also to publishing in an area dedicated exclusively to it, so if you are an editor / publisher do not hesitate to contact us!
