International architecture, video-art, photography, installation and performing art festival
Palazzo Albrizzi – Venice
Deadline: July 22, 2014
International ArtExpo, in collaboration with It’s LIQUID Group, is selecting all interesting architecture projects, photo works, video/short films, installations and performing art works to include in the next 2014 exhibition:
SOCIAL CITIES – Self Identities, Common Places, international festival of architecture, photography, video art, installation and performing art which will be held in the prestigious Palazzo Albrizzi in Venice (Italy), from July 31 to August 10, 2014. It will be the third event of the festival MORPHOS – Sustainable Empires, organized in Venice in the months between June and November 2014, in the same period of Architecture Biennale.
SOCIAL CITIES – Self Identities, Common Places analyzes the change of social relationship’s dynamics and the new need of real and face-to-face public rapports among people in our contemporary, high-tech and alienating lives. Today new technologies are integrated in our life and permit us to create endless networks of contacts with people from all-over the world, that we will probably never meet in real life. This infinite connections has enriched our lives and our personal identities, but from the other hands has completely modified the way in which we create human connections with people, creating more distance between them and us. Nowadays contemporary metropolis follow the new need of increasing our opportunities to connect with other people; meanwhile people try to create solid identities and individual personalities out of the sea of social networks.
Palazzo Albrizzi is one of the Venetian aristocracy’s palaces, situated in Cannaregio 4118, near Ca’ D’Oro. Constructed by the famous Capello family, in the 18th century the Palazzo passed into the hands of the Albrizzi family. The palace is the headquarter of ACIT Venezia, one of the most important Italian-German cultural association in collaboration with Goethe Institut, and since 2003 it has collaborated with Biennale in Venice, offering its spaces for National Pavilions or Collateral Events.
