Artopolis Association / PLACCC Festival

(UN)COMMON SPACES 2020-2024 Partner, member of IN SITU since 2009

Artopolis Association was created in 2008 with the mission of focusing on the field of site-specific performance and in a wider context, art in public space. 

The association’s main activity is organising the annual festival PLACCC which presents an international and local selection of site-specific art forms. 

Artopolis Association organised the first edition of PLACCC Festival in October 2008 with the support of Budapest Autumn Festival. The first festival presented 3 international projects over 5 days and attracted more than 800 spectators. In 2010 a smaller PLACCC event has been organised in Pécs in May beside the regular festival in Budapest organised in September. In 2013, Artopolis organised two festivals in Budapest : one in May in the Csepel neighbourhood and another in September in the city-centre. 

The festival always programmes Hungarian and foreign artists creating site-specifically.
