Artist and activist, founder of Pop Up AKTO Festival


Filip uses his researchers in different fields of modern art a platform for fighting for labor rights, public spaces and freedom of expression. Together with Ivana Vaseva he is the founder of Pop Up Akto festival — a regional festival of contemporary art which includes visual arts, performing arts, music and theory of culture (presentations, lectures and workshops), set up in Bitola, Republic of Macedonia. Filip & Ivana’s successful public art actions made them at one point branded by right wing government’s media as ‘red danger’ and public enemies number one.

At PLAN B Filip will talk on reclaiming back public places, making connections between modern art and working class and fighting ostracization campaigns.
