Venice International Art Fair 2019 analyzes the relationship between body and space, and the hybridization between identities and cultural/physical/social/urban settings in contemporary time, through two main sections: LIQUID ROOMS and FUTURE LANDSCAPES.

LIQUID ROOMS analyzes the hidden parts of our identities, through an immersive experience inside the fascinating universe of the complex labyrinths of our consciousness. The human body is a changing system that connects us with other bodies and spaces to perceive the surrounding reality; a strong communication system with its own language and infinite ways of expression.

FUTURE LANDSCAPES are abstract, infinite and conceptual, associated with a sense of freedom and infinite extension. Primarily experienced with the mind, spaces redefining their limits and borders, transforming surfaces in open flow of pure ideas. This section focuses on the concept of the borders and the structures between body, mind and soul, the human identity and the city, the space and the ground.

We invite artists, architects and designers to be inspired by the magical power of Venice, exploring the connection between desires, needs, fears through rituals that brings human kind to change, to transform and to evolve their inner world.

Extreme Land

Country:

Based at the first floor in the last railway station still active in south-east Italy, Ramdom is an interdisciplinary project that supports experimental educational formats (DEFAULT) and research projects on the topic of the so-called Extreme lands (Investigation of the Extreme Lands).

Experiencing a geographically and anthropologically peculiar place is a fundamental part of the research itself. The Residency is in this sense a fundamental tool to start an autonomous or guided reflection on specific topics.

We are extremely happy to announce that with the new residency plan, the opportunity to reach us and share a path with we will stay open and available the whole year.

Ramdom has always supported the research for artists through projects of various kinds (Default; Investigation of the Extreme Lands) that have have been realized during the years.
From now on the research and residencies plan expands throughout the year and is open to professionals from all disciplines: artists, curators, researchers, writers, anthropologists, philosophers, linguists, architects, urban planners, geographers, professionals of scientific disciplines and hikers.

In addition to Lastation and the use of equipment that already exist, we provide three possible options.
