Irina Botea Bucan & Orit Ishay / The 4th Mediterranean Biennale. Living Together – Crossing Borders

The Mediterranean Biennale is celebrating its tenth anniversary since its inauguration in 2010 as a model for multicultural cooperation and dialogue spanning diverse outlooks and opinions held by different communities and groups. It offers a venue in which one may discuss social issues relevant to contemporary society and explore art as a bridge between cultures.

Entitled “LIVING TOGETHER—CROSSING BORDERS,” this year the Biennale seeks to reinforce social solidarity, delving into the notion of the city as a shared public space, in response to the Coronavirus crisis and its aftershocks. It sustains interpersonal interaction beyond borders in a time of travel restrictions and social distancing. The Mediterranean Biennale offers an alternative platform, highlighting the local processes being created in the region and enhancing their cultural impact by means of art directed toward the community; art that emerges from the museum walls and integrates with the city. The city becomes a place for artistic thinking and inspiration, and a laboratory for ideas and creativity.
