TOpot: Festival of Radical Soundwalks

Festival of radical soundwalks
28 Sep – 1 Oct 2023
Cukrarna and public spaces

TO)pot is a festival of sound walks, events and workshops exploring listening and walking as relational practices.

With its three-day programme and several pre-festival events in different locations, TO)pot 2023 presents soundwalk by artists, researchers and thinkers. Their projects engage with sites – their materialities, acoustics, history, ecologies, their social and political life – by bringing the body on the move, displacing our attention, inviting us to join collective actions, making unheard phenomena audible, challenging the politics of the body in public space, listening to or voicing with more-than-human subjects… An invitation to explore our relationships with the environment through different approaches, frameworks and perspectives, as well as a variety of forms, tools, spaces and times.

Participating artists: a l l j a , Elena Biserna, Catherine Clover, Amanda Gutiérrez, Ida Hiršenfelder, Jata C, katrinem, Aldo Milohnić, Boštjan Perovšek, Irena Pivka, Anna Raimondo, OR poiesis, Tim Shaw, Jacek Smolicki, Marko Pogačnik, Neja Tomšič and Brane Zorman.
