School of Waters – Official Opening 14th May

School of Waters – 19th Bjcem-biennale for young artists Opening 14th May 2021 in the Republic of San Marino.

Platform Nord // Fluks – Centre for Young Art is proud to present artists Hanan Benammer and Bianca Hisse as representatives for the Nordic region at this exciting event.

The curatorial concept “School of Waters,” is created by young artists for young artists:

If we think of the whole operation of a school as a performance, how does that change the ways we teach and learn, or what we think of as knowledge? […] Looking to performances themselves as sites of knowledge, […] we might engage with the public in critically reflecting on and imagining what a school can do and be.
— Lauren Bakst, School of Temporary Liveness, University of the Arts School of Dance, 2019

Due the pandemic the opening has been postponed twice but has now finally landed on May 14th. The exhibition will be open until 31st October, and we highly recommend visiting!

About Bjcem:

Founded in 1985 as a nomadic platform, the Biennale is organised by BJCEM – Biennale des Jeunes Créateurs de l’Europe et de la Méditerranée. Throughout its history, it crossed the Mediterranean from Barcelona to Marseille, to Sarajevo, Rome, Athens and Tirana. In this perspective it has supported thousands of artists from more than 30 different countries over the course of eighteen editions and thirty years. Each edition of the Biennale is therefore revealed with an opportunity for deepening, meeting, mobility, exchange and knowledge.

The host for the 19. Biennale in 2021 is State Secretariat 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
