MOBILE BIENNAL 2017 – THE TOUR OF THE MOLDAVIA IN 7 DAYS
The second edition of Mobile Biennale, The Tour of Moldavia in 7 Days, 2017, took place between 30 June – 5 August and consisted of an itinerant coach trip in Moldovia (Romania and the Republic of Moldavia). This edition aims at analyzing those aspects that render art a space of experience, communication and knowledge. There were 35 participants in the 2017 edition – not only artists, curators, journalists in the field of visual arts but also personalities coming from other related fields like philosophy and poetry. The participants display different types of temperaments, energies and interests that make up and negotiate, through their various artistic stands, different aspects of contemporary art. This type of artistic microclimate is activated when rendered coherent and symbolically invested by the conventional framework of an Art Biennial.
The process of selecting the participants will result, on a small scale, in creating a climate specific to contemporary art, to be later on challenged through direct confrontation with social, cultural, political, spiritual and environmental realities of a region that lies at the extremity of Eastern Europe.
