CALL FOR ARTISTS
ANIMA MUNDI 2024

Venice | April – June, 2024
Deadline: May 25, 2024

ITSLIQUID Group, in collaboration with ACIT Venice – Italian-German Cultural Association, is pleased to announce the open call for ANIMA MUNDI 2024, an international exhibition of photography, painting, video art, installation/sculpture, and performance art, that will be held in Venice, at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello (click here to learn more about our location), at San Marco Art Space (click here to learn more on this venue) and in other prestigious venues and historical buildings, from April to June 2024, during the 60th Venice Biennale of Art.

The last edition of ANIMA MUNDI took place in Venice in 2022, presenting a great selection of more than 500 art works realized by 250 artists, coming from 40 countries. The festival focuses on the concept of ANIMA MUNDI, which according to several historical cultures, religions and philosophical systems, is an intrinsic connection between all living entities on the planet, which relates to the world in a similar way as the human soul is connected to the human body.

Plato expressed his thought about the ANIMA MUNDI in the Timaeus, “this world is indeed a living being endowed with a soul and intelligence… a single visible living entity containing all other living entities, which by their nature are all related”.

ANIMA MUNDI is the invisible energy behind all the natural and artificial elements that allow the planet to live. Thanks to the hidden connections of ANIMA MUNDI, all the ecosystems of the Earth, before and after the appearance of mankind, found their equilibrium, their ways to live and to develop themselves, to transform and to evolve. All the beings of the planet, plants, minerals, and animals are permeated by a secret force that has always stimulated human thought and research.

Artists, photographers, video makers, and performers are invited to submit their works. To take part in the selection, send your works’ submissions with a CV/biography, some still images (for video art), links to videos/films/performances and pictures via e-mail to director@itsliquid.com

    The festival aims to discover these multiple forms of hidden connections between the soul and the body, mankind and the natural elements, the natural spaces and the cities. We invite artists to show their reflections about the various ways in which the ANIMA MUNDI expresses the relationships among all the existing entities and the natural and cultural systems and to represent by their artistic works the processes of the evolution of the world in which we all live. Artists, designers and architects are invited to talk about ANIMA MUNDI through photo reportage of cities, hidden places, photographic documentaries, personal experiences, presenting their works of photography, painting, sculpture/installation, design and architecture, video art and live performance.

          Sarah Banis, Germany
          I was really very excited about how well everything was organized. There were no problems with anything and communication was also very easy. I felt in good hands from start to finish. I think it’s a great opportunity to participate in great exhibitions without a gallery and to gain experience. The art world is really tough, so I think it’s great that there is a platform that doesn’t discriminate but gives everyone a chance to show themselves.
