BB5: Tactics for the Here and Now
25 May - 22 July 2012
Bucharest Biennale promote awareness and dissemination of the culture, particularly in the fields of the arts, by means of exchanges and cultural cooperation within Europe and beyond and is looking for strategies that would develop mutual understanding and offer insights from different perspectives. The biennale aims to resolve the twofold problems of tradition and modernity, past and present, localism and global village, it strives to attain a balanced status between its aesthetic/artistic quality and popularity by overcoming the feeling of estrangement that the general public has towards the contemporary arts.
Earlier this year, Anne Barlow, curator of Bucharest Biennale 5, and Razvan Ion, director of Bucharest Biennale, were invited by BAM for a visitors program to Belgium. As a result, Rinus Van de Velde was invited as participant artist.
