As in the last few years, this year CRIC festival, will take place in several clusters throughout the year, because the attempt to live and encourage the critical culture cannot be a one-time event – it is an ongoing and continuous effort.
The realm of freedom – our socially available leisure – depends on our institutional forms of life and how we maintain or change those institutions. Our social institutions are not necessarily explicit, but are always implicit in what we do and in all forms of practical identities. All activities that we consider essential parts of a practical identity – as essential parts of the profession with which we identify – belong to the realm of freedom, and the time we devote to them is considered free time. Even activities that may seem more like means than ends—for example, acquiring a painstaking education—fall into the realm of freedom, as long as education is an essential part of what it means to be committed to a profession.
Through various theoretical, artistic and social practices, we will examine and explore the forms of fringe, subversive strategies of alternative spaces of freedom that will stand against the repressive social and institutional forms that control our free time, understood as the time in which we realize our imperativе goals, related to the creation of social communities that care for the common good, for green policies applied in all segments of the community and that want to redefine the current, capitalist, “market” political concepts that mercilessly trample on everything that should create ан empathic, just and solidary order.
