Organization: Santorini Biennale

“Neighbourhoods” are simultaneously geographic and ideological biotopes, political, social and economic spaces. They are common places without impermeability as different societies and cultures need to interact between them, especially when they are called to solve common problems such as: climate change, environmental pollution, urbanization, social inequalities, intolerance, criminality, terrorism, sub-birth or population explosion, economic exploitation, «production of poverty», immigration and much more.

Modern diplomacy seems to “run” a marathon of sovereignty and enforcement rather than a process of normalization of relations between different “neighbourhoods”, thus interrupting cultural exchange and contributing to the creation of closed and fearful ideological societies around the world.

Exhibitions will be organized by Art Curators that are based in the exhibition cities above and supported by local authorities. Every exhibition will run for almost 4 weeks including all parallel events program.

Each artist or group of artists can participate in up to 2 exhibitions during the exhibition period (from 01 June 2019 to 31 July 2021) and in the cities chosen during submission process or those suggested by the curators.

Venues are spaces of about 500m2 to 1000m2 and have all required exhibition facilities. The complete list of Venues and the exhibitions program will be announced by the end of April 2019.
