BorderBody - Mixing Identities International art festival of photography, video art, installation and performing art which will be held inAlmeria (Spain), at MECA Mediterráneo Centro Artístico, during the 7 and the 21 of February 2014 (video screening only), and inprestigious Palazzo Barone Ferrara in Bari (Italy), from the 13 to the 21 of February 2014.
“BorderBody” exhibitions cycle is conceived as a diffused and nomadic festival in different places of the world. “Mixing Identities”, the second chapter of this 3-event cycle, is focused on the hybridization of social identities. In contemporary societies boundaries are getting more and more fleeting, and also the identity, that makes each person or place a recognizable entity, turns out fluid and multiple. Cultural, religious, ethnic borders become changeable too. This change, this mutation has allowed to cross the inside of the identities, creating new possible crossings, new blends. There is no more limit between an identity and the other one but it is possible to walk, to cross a passage and to find oneself halfway through it, in a non-place, in a non-identity.
The event is open to photography, video art, installation and performing art. Exhibition at MECA (Spain) is open to video art only.
Palazzo Barone Ferrara is a magnificent historic building of XIX century, symbol of importance and progress of the city. Located in the centre of Bari, is the headquarters and exhibition space of Banca Apulia bank.
