To travel aimlessly from place to place. When we remove the AIM of traveling, be it for tourism or work, we are left with a pure form of movement, movement as a basic function of all life and energy.
Under the pressure of living as fixed subjects of capitalism we must produce value that is consumable. To waste energy aimlessly is to live in disregard of this systemic drive, to not follow the code of the logic of capital. Thus, the desire for wandering is a rarity, it is scarce in the present conditions of the situation.
The creative work of art cannot, by its very gesture, accept this subsumption. For tall that we appreciate as art is always already an act that marks a break, a rupture and a crack within what is provided as a given in our adapted sensory system. We love the art which does not reproduce the meaning of the present. We love the art that hints on that which under the present state of knowing is un-referenceable.
Mediterranea 19 Young Artists Biennale
San Marino 2021
School of Waters
Curated by A Natural Oasis? A Transnational Research Programme
Even at a moment of standstill, Mediterranea 19 continues to research and dialogue with the artists with the aim of expressing the Biennale and its ecological potential in a collective transitory space, a waiting room hosting the preparations for next year’s event in San Marino.
The curatorial team of School of Waters, driven by the symbolic agency of waters, conceived an editorial platform which functions as a digital wetland: a breeding ground wherein ideas foster, processes collect and multiply, generating syncretisms that gradually build the ecosystem of Mediterranea 19.

Us and Them
Kapana – City Gallery, Plovdiv
Duration: 01.10. – 07.11.2021
Part of the Legacy Programme of Plovdiv 2019, supported by Municiapality Foundation Plovdiv 2019 and IFA – Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen
In everyday language, as in everyday life, a distinction is quickly made between ‘us’ here and ‘them’ there. US and THEM are perhaps those artists, who live in one of the art metropolises of the art world, and those, who live and work in Bulgaria on the so-called periphery. Perhaps these are also those, who work in neighbouring countries.
The exhibition questions such subdivisions. It shows works that can be located via the individual biographies, but which address generally important topics in their subject matter. Boundaries that determine who the one and who the other are, lose their clear contours.
The presented artistic positions reflect questions of existence, being part of a community. They are characterized by diversity, variety and accepted contradictions.
