Każin Barokk – Performative Machines: Call for Participation

Każin Barokk is a Valletta 2018 project that plays with saints and sinners, the Baroque and the contemporary, fast-food franchises and the colours of the feasts in a collage of memories and worlds, with the past and the future mirroring one another. Out of this cocktail of images and arias, a ‘Baroque pastiche’ of local and contemporary identities is born.
