EUPavilion is an online exhibition that presents eight proposals for the construction of the first European Pavilion at the Venice Biennale. Artistic and architectural practices Armature Globale, Ballabio/Bava/De Luca, Jasmina Cibic, Diogo Passarinho, Plan Comùn, Something Fantastic, TEN, Evita Vasiljeva have been invited to imagine a spatial proposition that breaks away from the national pavilion paradigm, creating the conditions to ask questions about new representative languages. To mark the launch of the exhibition, the EUPavilion collective organizes an evening at MEGA Gallery in Milan on 18 November.
As part of their ‘Democracy Pavilion’, the L’Internationale association is organizing a four-day conference in Ljubljana that brings together artists, activists, historians, curators,
and philosophers. They will explore the case of Slovenia in order to understand wider European trends and exchange practices and knowledge from different contexts, looking
into the potential of the arts as initiators of imaginative epistemologies and ethics of living together within the boundaries of the planet. Slovenia is the initial focus because of its current political conditions with a coalition government trying to silence both critical and mainstream media, cultural institutions, and artists and because it holds the presidency of the EU during the second half of 2021.
