The first exhibition in History where everyone gets In!
“Anti-art is life, is nature, is true reality—it is one and all.”--George Maciunas, 1962
“L’écriture s’est usée, il faut la renouveler.” --Ch. Dotremont, COBRA, 1968
Venize Biennale 2017 is a parallel art world trying to hear from the limbo what the underground is screaming.
It is an attempt to bring back poetry or at least, blow up certainties again, to blur the boundaries between “in” and “out”, “professional artist” and “artist”.
We want everyone’s scream to be worldwide.
We need to renew the thinking and the trend by questioning the hierarchical “art circle”, and the obscure “art evaluation”.
It is an exhibition about contestation of supremacy. Supremacy is surrounding us at different levels, that’s why we bring about this counter-power, jury-free exhibition.
The Trans-Bordering-Art expresses our desire to travel across frontiers of any kind in any field (geography, art, economy, identity, official or non official, etc). The Art-Trans-Borderers smuggled some “outside” artworks in Venice Biennale and exhibit them “inside”.
