Biennale Architettura 2020: Hashim Sarkis and Paolo Baratta Presented “How Will We Live Together?”

2 days ago

Today Curator Hashim Sarkis and President of La Biennale Paolo Baratta met the press at Ca’ Giustinian to announce theme and details of the 17th International Architecture Exhibition which will take place from May 23rd to November 29th, 2020 (opening days May 21 –22) at the Giardini and the Arsenale and around other venues in Venice.

Talking about “How will we live together”, the theme of the upcoming edition, Hashim Sarkis stated: “We need a new spatial contract. In the context of widening political divides and growing economic inequalities, we call on architects to imagine spaces in which we can generously live together: togetheras human beings who, despite our increasing individuality, yearn to connect with one another and with other species across digital and real space; together as new households looking for more diverse and dignified spaces for inhabitation; together as emerging communities that demand equity, inclusion and spatial identity; together across political borders to imagine new geographies of association; and together as a planet facing crises that require global action for us to continue living at all […] The year 2020 has often been referred to as a milestone on the path to a better future. Many nations and cities have devised a ‘Vision 2020.’ The year is upon us. We look to the collective architectural imagination to meet this momentous occasion with creativity and courage.”

By now 34 countries have confirmed their participation as National Participations and as usual the exhibition will include Collateral Events, presented by international institutions.
