ITSLIQUID International Art and Architecture Festival
Deadline:
June 18, 2020

ITSLIQUID Group, in collaboration with Venice Events, is pleased to announce the open call for BORDERS – ITSLIQUID International Art and Architecture Festival.

Borders 2020 002

The festival focuses on the concept of “borders”, between the soul and the body, the man and the city, 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, the borders, shape their attitudes and behaviors, limiting the freedom and creating a sense of alienation. The man reacts breaking the limits and finding a new way of life. We imagine a world of “liquid cities”, where differences create new possibilities and exchange possibilities, instead of being social barriers.

BORDERS Festival consists of 3 main events:

BODIES+CITIES SKIN from July 23 to August 21, 2020 at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space and from July 24 to August 21, 2020 at Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi

Borders 2020 004

The festival also aims to discover the interpretations of borders between built and unbuilt geographical contexts, the complex spatial mechanisms within contemporary cities and territories, to understand these underlying cultural philosophical, political and aesthetic value systems that influence the production of architectural form. The investigation concerns not just territories’ borders: the festival focuses on the design and the construction strategies applied to the contemporary “skin and bones” architecture, on the thin surface that divides and connects the inner places with the outer spaces, from the single buildings to the huge metropolis’ borderline.

Deadline for applications June 18, 2020 (11.59 PM of your local time)

Sumptuous and possessing particular charm, Ca’ Zanardi is located in a most peaceful setting and has its own delightful private garden as well as a magnificent terrace full of sun and colours. Ca’ Zanardi is located close to the Ca’ D’Oro, the splendid 15th century gothic palace along the Grand Canal. It is easily reachable by foot, after a two minute walk from the Ca’ D’Oro water bus stop, or by boat using the palazzo’s private pier positioned along the fetching Santa Caterina canal. The refined elegance of the palazzo’s halls and common areas and the delicacy of its original 16th century furnishings create a fascinating setting.
