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.
