BJCEM 2011 Edition

 

BJCEM 2011 Edition The 15th Edition of the Biennale des jeunes créateurs de l’Europe et la Mediterranée will be characterized by a new format. This times, it will not be a single event but a long journey in the Mediterranean region with two focal points in Thessaloniki (October – starting on the 17th ) and in Rome in December 2011, where artistic events, workshops and meetings.

This year’s Biennale will focus on art and territory and will also feature more artists from the Southern shore. Every activity has been conceived with local partners.

In order to define the curatorial framework of the event, experts and curators from Thessaloniki led by Christos Savvidis have written a text based on the issue of “Symbiosis?” Extract: “.... this project seeks to raise a number of questions including: how can we live together with different political modes of existence? How will the recent events in the Mediterranean reorientate the conditions of living together in the Mediterranean basin?

More than 400 artistes aged from 18 to 30 coming from more than 30 different countries will participate to this 15th Edition. They are selected by local experts and curators through an open call for participation in the majority of cases. The main selection criteria are: the coherence of the proposed concept in relation with the topic “Symbiosis?” and the potential talent of the artist in relation to the actual trends in contemporary art and culture.
