5 – 13 November 1992

 After the two editions in Barcelona of 1985 and 1987 the Biennial of Young Artists from Mediterranean Europe went back in Spain.

The events that were affecting Europe, like the Yugoslav Wars, with the consequent changes in the borders, the dismantling of some Countries and the birth of new ones, were reflected in the circuit of the Biennial, which welcomed new Countries for its VI edition, such as Croatia.

The Biennial could be considered as an answer to the challenges carried out by those changes, since it gave us the trust in the future of the young artists.

The Biennial was structured in the following disciplines: Performance, Architecture, Scenic Arts, Visual Arts, Graphic Design, Photography, Gastronomy, Comics, Moving Images: Cinema and Video, Inventions, Literature, Fashion, Music and Cultural Projects.


The participants were about 700 artists from 12 Countries (Spain, Italy, France, Croatia, Cyprus, Greece, Portugal, Republic of San Marino, Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia).

The most highlighted artist of this edition were: Fratelli di Soledad, music group from Turin, Ghazel, visual artist from Paris, Dimitris Indares, film-maker from Athens, Alexandros Psychoulis, visual artist from Athens, Karim Sergoua, video-maker from Alger, Slaven Tolj, performer and visual artist from Croatia and Danijel Žeželj, visual artist from Croatia.


The Biennial took place in several buildings of the urban tissue, such as: Palau de Musica, where the opening ceremony took place, Palacio Marqués de Campo, Museo de la Ciudad, Casa-Museo Benlliure, Centro de Artesania, Tinglado del Puerto, Sala Escalante, Filmoteca Valenciana, Centro Cultural Bancaja, Universidad de Valencia, Instituto Francés, Teatro Olimpia, Disco Woody and Teatro.
