An annual event and exhibition, presenting international forward-thinking new media artists and audio/visual acts.
IZIS was created by artists, cultural producers, curators and poets from the Slovenian coast in 2013. Through the years, the festival events were held in cinemas, galleries, public spaces and industrial buildings. In its goal of integrating intermedia art in programs of local venues, the festival has successfully navigated between reluctance and rebellion, institutionalization and guerrilla.
Festival IZIS explores the impact of technology on culture, society and nature through the lens of cutting-edge artistic works. It gathers artists, thinkers and an adventurous crowd who experience new narratives that give insight to complex topics such as audio/visual techniques, robotics, hybrid materials, kinetic sculptures, immersive installations, mind-bending experiences and questions how technology will influence the future.
Every year, the festival attracts many visitors from Slovenia and abroad.
Festival IZIS is a part of the project RUK (2019-2023), which is co-financed by the Republic of Slovenia and the European Union under the European European Regional Development Fund.
