THE GREATEST SMALLEST FESTIVAL IN THE WORLD
Shinafest was initiated by Gregor and me (Matski). The idea came after a request for Dallas Kingston Kollektor to perform in Idrija. Idrija, Slovenia became the festival location, after the first year sponsored by the Slovenian Ministry of Culture. The idea was to present a variation of artists/events/performances/documentations pushing usual limits.The word ‘experimental’ is given by language limited choice attempting defining (labelling?) the festival, leaving the interpretation to everybody individual.
I programmed and curated the first 7 years, 2010 – 2016.
