The project which introduces half-forgotten medium of slides is not only an exhibition but also an interactive play. It researches the history and presence of slide production, its methods, procedures and tools and its usage in art, education, entertainment and amateurish spheres in general. Let there be an intermingle of technique and art, education and phantasy, dead and living, private and public, professional and amateurish at our slide soiree.
The exhibition introduces historical slide-projectors, unusual old and new slides, slide-stories from found and newly created slide cycles, family documentaries, fairy tales, adventure stories, comics, accompanied by sound, music or at least squeaking of the slide-projectors.
A series of thematic evenings includes lectures, performances and slide parties.
