krv/AV/ica is a project to support, instigate, document and mediate activities of situated art practices where in/around Krvavica building as used in venues and locations by artist and creatives to: engage, perform, mediate, educate and express, predominantly in the intervention mode, rather just as a space for presentation. It also aspires to institute sustainable artistic and cultural futurity into the present (su)realities of the building turning into ruin, as well as to weave the social fiber that is missing for its re-activation as (trans)local + trans(temporal) context of collectivized
(not privatized) desire... Activity of mediation and education using open content, FLOSS tools and participatory methods of commoning is started by ~Zblace.
Local artists and creatives work erratically inter-ween in the space. They document interventions on social media using https://www.instagram.com/krvavica_art/ Hopefully with adopting the use of digital commons this will diversify in format and increase the resolution of material.
