At the 9th edition of the Bobri festival, whose central theme is multiculturalism, we will be discovering and exploring the riches of various cultures around the world. We will be talking about the importance of cultural diversity and the richness it brings to the understanding and coexistence with other cultures. We will also touch upon topics such as respect for diversity, (in)tolerance, migration and exile. We will meet artists and migrants, who come from foreign countries.
Organiser of the festival: Municipality of Ljubljana; executive producer: Mladinsko Theatre

The International Centre of Graphic Arts has prepared an exhibition in cooperation with two similar institutions from Serbia and the US. The Print Centre from Philadelphia, founded in 1915, is taking part with works by contemporary artists paired up with artists that have an important historical connection to their organization. The "Akademija" Centre for Graphic Art and Visual Researches, founded in 1995, is part of the Faculty of Fine Arts in Belgrade. The exhibition presents a selection of prints from its own production with an emphasis on artists of various artistic expressions, to whom printmaking represents an additional opportunity for exploration. The focus of the International Centre of Graphic Arts in the show is on works from the collection and current production, which have investigated the status of the graphic arts during the thirty years of the institution's functioning, placing it in dialogue with contemporary artistic trends.
Curators: Božidar Zrinski (MGLC), John Caperton (The Print Center, Philadelphia) and Ljiljana Tašić ("Akademija" Centre for Graphic Art and Visual Researches, Belgrade).

In 2013, Tomas Vu participated in the 30th Biennial of Graphic Arts and received the Audience Award for the series Songs from the Beatles' "The White Album", presented for the first time. The story of the exhibition of GREEN GO HOME is part myth and part folklore. Wherever the installation is put on view, a spirit of resistance is invoked – resistance against the invader, the colonial power, or the repressive government.
