IZIS is coming. Join us between September 23 and October 16, 2022!

“The tenth anniversary edition of Izis takes up as its basic element the pipe, that elongated and hollow something that normally provides, in secret, all the inflows and outflows that either in the bowels of our homes and cities or inside our bodies keep our lives running as smoothly as possible.” – Karlo Hmeljak

This year, you will be able to see intermedia works by well-established Slovenian and foreign artists at the former salt warehouse Libertas in Koper.

The performative program, which will explore the future of audio multi-channel immersive (re)production, will be performed at a new venue, the Bastion fortress.


The tenth anniversary edition of the IZIS festival will be opened on Friday, September 23, 2022, at 8 p.m., in the Libertas warehouse (Kopališko nabrežje) in Koper.

The intermedia installations can also be viewed in the Libertas warehouse at the following dates, until October 16, 2022:

Monday – Friday

4 p.m. – 10 p.m. 

Saturday and Sunday

9 a.m. –  1 p.m. and 5 p.m. – 10 p.m.

On Saturday, September 24, 2022, it will be possible to view the installations from 5 to 10 p.m.
On Sunday, September 25, 2022, Libertas will be closed. 
On Sunday, October 16, 2022, it will be possible to visit only in the morning, between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.
