Installation view at Cappadox, 2016

Pozitif is pleased to announce the second year of Cappadox, the definitive Cappadocia experience, a progressive multi-disciplinary cultural festival that brings a host of international and local contemporary art, music, nature and outdoor programmes together. Set in the dramatic landscape of Cappadocia in Central Anatolia, Cappadox 2016 will take place between May 19 and 22, and offer guests unrivalled access to live music, contemporary art, gastronomy and outdoors activities.

Cappadox 2016 sets out with the theme Let us cultivate our garden through which diverse fields of the festival will intersect with each other.

"Let us cultivate our garden" is a quote from the last sentence of Voltaire's classic novel Candide. This sentence summarizes the worldview of an old farmer who Candide meets in Istanbul (Constantinople), after traveling the whole world in pursuit of happiness. It also holds a proposal against contemporary lifestyles, which primarily generate heat and speed.
