The fourth edition of the The Old School residency took place in Gorna Lipnitsa between 16-25 August 2013. This year the theme of the residency was Ritual art. The work of the artists was based on previously prepared materials which represented different rituals – folklore, religious, occult, etc. In essence the ritual is an action or series of actions aimed to achieve a particular goal. Тhe purpose of the ritual art is to stimulate the artist to create a work using the techniques of the ritual. Every action in this process has its own meaning and should be done in strictly followed rules. The final result is reaching a significant public purpose.
