NICOLAUS SCHAFHAUSEN has held the first press conference as curator of BUCHAREST BIENNALE 6 - Bucharest International Biennial for Contemporary Art on 13 February, 2013 at the new location of PAVILION - Center for Contemporary Art and Culture (Str. C.A. Rosetti nr. 36 A, crossing with Str. Jean Louis Calderon).
BUCHAREST BIENNALE 6 - Bucharest International Biennial for Contemporary Art - is set for May 23 - July 20, 2014, under the curatorship of Nicolaus Schafhausen, director of Kunsthalle Wien. The appointment also will mark the first cooperation of BUCHAREST
BIENNALE and Kunsthalle Wien which will develop a new type of dialogue between Wien and Bucharest.
By appointing such a successful and innovative curator as Nicolaus Schafhausen, BUCHAREST BIENNALE will continue its tradition
of exploring different ways of engaging the city, within a global context. Governing motif of the 6th Bucharest Biennale will be displayed
in various figures of the concept-couple Belonging & Longing. It will focus on topics related to the imperfect/open nature of (national)
identities, the inverse forces of desire for identity and individualism and their structural effects towards our perception of the Other
and the Self.
The press conference has been joined by Răzvan Ion and Eugen Rădescu, the co-directors of BUCHAREST BIENNALE.
