Borny Fest

Art, Music & Urban Culture

After a long queue at the opening of the Bored & Horny project, good reviews and lively interest, Odessa Museum of Modern Art decided to continue and the format of a one-day festival Borny Fest.

The name was born from the formula:

Bored + Horny = Borny. BORNY FEST!

In the context of the approaching permanent quarantine, this word can have many interpretations. Borny is to do nothing and be in a good mood. It feel lethargic and at the same time agitated.
