CALL FOR ARTISTS
BORDERS 2020 | FRAGMENTED IDENTITIES
ITSLIQUID International Art and Architecture Festival
Deadline: August 02, 2020

ITSLIQUID Group, in collaboration with Venice Events and ACIT Venice – Italian-German Cultural Association, is pleased to announce the open call for FRAGMENTED IDENTITIES, second appointment of BORDERS – ITSLIQUID International Art and Architecture Festival.

BORDERS Festival, curated by Arch. Luca Curci, will be presented in Venice at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space, at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello and in other prestigious venues from September 03 to October 02, 2020.

The first edition of BORDERS Festival took place in Venice in 2016, in the same period of the 15th Venice Architecture Biennale, presenting a great selection of more than 500 art and architecture works realized by 180 artists and architects, coming from 36 countries. Never as this time the concept of the exhibition seems to be epochal: since 3 months, the humankind coexists at a distance to stay closer. The new invisible borders generated by the covid-19 are creating new ways of living everyday life, new human connections, re-thinking common spaces and entire cities. Could the new “borders” be the solution?

We invite artists, architects and designers to be inspired by this new era, exploring the connection between desires, needs, fears that brings humankind to change, to transform and to evolve our inner world.

The festival focuses on the concept of “borders”, between the soul and the body, the human being and the city, the city and the ground. The festival analyzes the idea of human and urban borders, how people live them and how they are modified in contemporary society. Every human being lives in a world in which the limits, the borders, shape their attitudes and behaviors, limiting the freedom and creating a sense of alienation. The human being reacts breaking the limits and finding a new way of life. We imagine a world of “liquid cities”, where differences create new possibilities instead of being social barriers.

Human identities are both separated and related one to another into a big mosaic that complete the existence and the world culture. All the identities can be considered as fragmented pieces of human being, ready to be unique and shareable in a universe with physical limits. In art people are mixed together in a melting pot of sensation and fluctuating emotions. The challenge is to see all those fragmented identities, recognize and use them to see things through many different points of view and imagination in order to broke all barriers and boundaries of every day’s life and to create the relationship between man and space, including man-built and natural spaces. There is not a unique perspective on our unconscious beings and identities, showing how things are rarely whole or perfect.

BORDERS Festival consists of 3 main events: BODIES+CITIES SKIN (July 23 / August 21, 2020), FRAGMENTED IDENTITIES and FUTURE LANDSCAPES. We are now selecting artists for the following two upcoming events:

– FRAGMENTED IDENTITIES from September 03 to October 02, 2020 at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space and from September 04 to October 02, 2020 at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello
Deadline for applications is August 02, 2020 (11.59 PM of your local time)
