ITSLIQUID Group, in collaboration with ACIT Venice – Italian-German Cultural Association, is pleased to announce the open call for SECRET SPACES, second appointment of BORDERS ART FAIR 2023, that will take place in Venice at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello (click here to learn more about this venue) from June 16 to July 07, 2023, and in other prestigious venues and historical buildings, during the same period of the 18th Venice Biennale of Architecture.
The last edition of BORDERS ART FAIR took place in Venice in 2021, presenting a great selection of more than 500 art and architecture works realized by 300 artists and architects, coming from more than 40 countries. The 2023 edition will provide artists and exhibitors with the unique opportunity to present their works to an international audience of professionals as curators, gallerists, collectors, editors and publishers who seek to acquire, publish and encourage the best contemporary art talents.
The festival focuses on the concept of “borders”, between the soul and the body, the human being and the urban space, 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 and the borders shape their attitudes and behaviours, limiting freedom and creating a sense of alienation. The human being reacts by 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.
Humankind coexists at a distance to stay closer: the new invisible borders are creating new ways of living everyday life, new human connections, and re-thinking common spaces and entire cities.
