The biennial’s third edition is a continuation of the long-term mission of the Art Encounters Foundation to engage a wide audience in debates about today’s society, and to create a dynamic platform for cultural exchange between the Romania’s art scene and the international scene. The guests of the Art Encounters Biennial 2019 are over 60 artists from around the world, 22 of whom will create new works, specially conceived to relate to the city of Timișoara. The approach of the curators, Maria Lind and Anca Rujoiu, is based on the belief that contemporary art is a form of knowing which, together with science, politics, literature and philosophy, helps us understand the complexity of life today. The name of the biennial – Art Encounters – represents a source of inspiration for dialogue and reflection. Every art work will be the product of an encounter and will aim to stimulate debate between groups and individuals related to art and its contact with society. Throughout this edition of the Art Encounters Biennial, diverse focuses and ideas which will be seen in the artistic works and activities will leave a mark on these parts of the project.
