In its 19th edition, the Festival aligns its curated sections with the South, rather than its competitive show only, as it did in the past. The entire program is therefore oriented towards the South and its myriad issues. These issues – which provide inspiration and parameters for the selection of artworks and projects for the Festival – concern the diasporas, hybrid identities, travel and migration flows, personal narratives, isolation, the social fabric and insularity.
Southern Panoramas, the competitive show’s title in past editions, now becomes the Festival’s kingpost, comprising artworks and projects selected through two separate calls. This edition also features work by guest artists who are relatively unknown on a global level, despite their landmark careers on the Southern scene. The triangulation between Africa, the Caribbean and South America constitutes the core of their reflections.
