The project is part of a series of solo presentations of Slovenian artists. In a documentary form and with an extensive catalogue, Polonca Lovšin will present a series of projects entitled Movement for Public Speech, which she carried out in recent years in several cities: Maribor, Strasbourg, Feldbach, Kočevje and Ljubljana (in the framework of the programme announcing the future Cukrarna Gallery).
With a specially determined thematic focus, she tied every implementation to various pressing topics related to the venues. The central point of the project is a podium behind which invited speakers participate with their recitals, singing, musical performances and motive actions. Thus, the podium becomes a space of a public expression of thoughts, but, without active listeners, the latter die down in silence. The operation of the microphones on the podium depends on electricity produced by the co-participants of the event pedalling the wheels under the podium. The connection between all the present actors is thus necessary, since the first cannot be heard without the second.
