INDIGO, Festival of Contemporary Ideas
5.–7. September 2018
The third edition of Indigo was dedicated to rumours: a silent force that affects public opinion and behaviour. Rumours affect personal decisions and relations between people and communities. They can be silent or spoken out loud, intentional or unintentional. The subjects of rumours are often the last to find out about them. They can be about anything and anyone, and the greater the uncertainty, the more they are present. The more scandalous they are, the sooner they start and the faster they spread, and there is no way of stopping them. Their consequences are unpredictable. Whether we like it or not, we are part of them and they affect all of us. Rumours are politics, rumours are a commodity, rumours are power, rumours are a weapon.
Rumours form the background of the creative reflections that Indigo has shared with festivalgoers via exhibitions, concerts, performances, film screenings, workshops, lectures and debates with noted artists and theorists from Slovenia and abroad.
During three festival days, 24 events took place. The festival hosted more than 120 lecturers, designers, performers, musicians and other artists from 14 countries (Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Italy, Austria, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, United Kingdom, Portugal, Denmark, Ireland, Ukraine, USA). More than 3500 local and foreign visitors attended the festival and it got a great media coverage – more than 70 publications.
