Museum Fortress Builders is located in Valletta across the skyline of Sliema. It displays the history of Fortresses. In the Frame of a European Union using its outskirts as Fortresses the Mahalla Festival invites for artistic debates on various topics.
The Museum is hosting artists positions around a globalized world-economy in the Conceptual Mahalla Share-House-Shop. Installations from objects out of recycled materials, Photo-documentations and interactive works are inviting for reflections of various topics central in Malta and Europe right now.
Turkish Artist Murat Germen will build up a grid of Photos around rapid urbanism in Istanbul in a dialogue with urbanisation in Malta. Maltese Artist Raphael Vella works around the sickness societies should be cured of. Austrian Designer Zitta Schnitt will install an object in the shape of a wave made out of PET-Purses. She invented a technique to manufacture wallets out of Plastic bottles. Poetic Photographs display the drama of the rescuing missions that were just stopped in front of Malta and Italy. Performances of the Golddess hunting for Fame and Glitter will reappear in different locations unexpectedly, reflecting the spectacle of daily life in a post factual time.
Drawings, Clothing, Design Objects and high-quality handcraft will be for sale. They are pleading in a witty way for Fair-Trade, Sustainability, Slow Food and Diversity in Design. The visitors have the opportunity to access high quality, unique products representing the spirit of the Mahalla Festival to fair prices.
