School of Waters

curated by A Natural Oasis? A Transnational Research Programme

BJCEM-Biennale des jeunes créateurs de l’Europe et de la Méditerranée, the Ministry for Education and Culture of the Republic of San Marino, the Cultural Institutes of the Republic of San Marino, and the University of the Republic of San Marino are glad to announce the selected artists of Mediterranea 19 Young Artists’ Biennale – School of Waters.
The current crisis has made it necessary to postpone the official opening of Mediterranea 19 Young Artists’ Biennale until 2021.
Specific dates will be announced in due time.
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

SELECTED ARTISTS

Moreover, a special section, called “Writing in Waters”, will involve the following fellows:

Chiara Giardi (SM)
Andrea Glez (SP)
Chiara Guiducci-Lucrezia Faraci- Alessia Valgimigli (SM)
Julia Nicolau (SP)
Valentina Toccaceli (SM)
N.O.A. (Ana Marina Lozica – Nunzia Ponsillo-Oliver Vicenzi) (SM)
Isabel Rosado Prieto (SP)
Javier Aranda Segado (SP)
Emma Vernhes (SP)

Writing in waters is the educational program that will take place in San Marino during the Biennale, aiming to challenge concepts of knowledge production, processes of unlearning and question fluxes of information. The planned activities will create opportunities for the development of practices and exchange among young creatives. More information to follow.
