The BUCHAREST BIENNALE continues to build a strong partnership between Bucharest — a geocultural space where the political is reflected in all aspects of life—and the rest of the World. In transcending specific geographical, historical, or political frameworks, it connects to a broader complexity, namely the one of “resistance” within the quotidian realm.

As a biannual cultural event, BB’s temporary structure allows a deconstruction of the systems supporting and underlying what has been called the “experience economy”. The Bucharest Biennale goes beyond merely orchestrating memorable “events” that aim for prescribed notions of customizable transformation, which are characteristic of this economic model and importantly reflected in the global biennial format as well. Instead, the Biennale offers a platform to analyse, and potentially redirect, current social, political and economic imaginaries. It intends to make visible the power structures supporting such spheres of control, addressing the ways in which they are organized and coordinated, as well as implemented across broad segments of society. The Biennale is an attempt to turn these scripted “experiences” upside down, to re-think and re-imagine processes of domination, while positioning the cityof Bucharest as a field of cultural action and exchange.

With its innovative model refined throughout the previous six editions, the Bucharest Biennale is now regarded as one of the most vital biennials in Europe, holding a widely respected position within the international art scene.

"On The Model Of Other Great Biennials We Decided In More Minimalist Aproach. One Private Gallery - Mobius-, One Independent Art Center MORA -, One Artist-Run Space - Atelier030202-, One Public Intervention, A Correct Number Of Artists And Extremely Powerful Concepts. On Our Idea Of Cooperation And Collaboration We Decided To Work With This Type Of Venues. “Edit Your Future”, The Concept Of BB8 Will Be Like Essence In A Small Jar And The Route Of The Biennial Will Become A Visiting Path Of The Eclectic Areas Of Bucharest."
