Simultaneously, this is an area of great political tension where NATO meets Russia and whose history is closely linked to Europe’s destiny.

Festival guests are invited to have hot debates in the sunny surroundings of KrasnoBAR – a space created by the art group ZIP from the city of Krasnodar in Russia’s’ south. The emblem for the bar, the REINBULL, is a symbolic hybridization of northern reindeer of Kirkenes and southern bull of Krasnodar.
