Future Identities – Bodies . Places . Spaces festival is focused on the relationship between body and space, and the hybridization between identities and cultural/physical/social/urban settings in contemporary time. People, backgrounds, societies, progress, cities and all their inputs create hybrid identities, modifying each other and being mixed in prospect to shape a better world. The festival aims to conduct a research and to offer to artists and audience a 360° experience about the body, conceived not only as a material organic system connected to space, but also as an evolving organism with peculiar sensations, feelings and characteristics. Future Identities will present an exhibition of photography, installation, video-art and architecture works, with a special opening on August 23, 2014 at Palazzo Albrizzi; and the Venice Experimental Cinema and Performance Art Festival, with meeting with artists, at Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi, from August 31 to September 02, 2014.
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, 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.
Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi is a residential palace dating back to the 16th century which, over the centuries, has been added on to by various noble Venetian families and is one of the most evocative and beautiful palaces in the city of Venice; the Serenissima. 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 colour. Ca’ Zanardi is located close to the Ca’ D’Oro, the splendid 15th century gothic palace along the Grand Canal. It is located off the main tourist drag but is still 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.
