BUCHAREST BIENNALE 8
Bucharest International Biennial for Contemporary Art
Edit Your Future
May 17 – July 8, 2018
Grand Opening: May 17, 2018
The Bucharest Biennale is interested in exploring links between creative practice and social progress, as well as correspondences between local and global contexts. Now in its 16th year, the Biennale continues to build a strong partnership between Bucharest—a geocultural space where the political is reflected in all aspects of life—and the rest of the World. In transcending specific geographical, historical, or political frameworks, it connects to a broader complexity, namely the one of “resistance” within the quotidian realm.
What makes Bucharest Biennale in the region favorable is first of all the determination of the team of Pavilion, journal for politics & culture, to make it sustainable and extensive through calm or chaotic times. The second aspect of Bucharest Biennale is its position as an exhaustively independent civil society initiative, consciously distanced to calculating powers of global art scene. And, the third quality is its geo-political-cultural position and links to three historical and current, both related and competitive cultures of Black Sea, the Mediterranean and Middle-East.
