migratory interdisciplinary grid 21
MIG 21, an international art exhibition on the topic of migrations, proposes an entirely humanist response to a clearly political question, thus connecting 50 exhibiting artists from Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia Herzegovina, Serbia, Macedonia, France, Germany, Russia, Poland, the Czech Republic, Japan, USA, Mexico, Canada and Australia.
In the abundance of various -isms, we have totally disregarded the only one that truly pushes us forward as a civilization. Humanism as a political program, a surrogate and substitution to capitalism, never really got its chance in history. Indeed, we have successfully cellophaned the humanist note into various, including modern, forms of art, where we are, indeed, still holding on to it firmly for the time being, under the guise of preserving the idea of humaneness. Yet the consideration triggered by MIG 21 is interesting precisely because it proposes an entirely humanist response to a clearly political question.
50 national and foreign artists present their works on the topic of migrations between 7 October and 30 November 2016 at Kibla Portal, an old industrial factory hall, which was transformed into an exhibition venue (other two venues are MMC KIBLA and ARTKIT):
The exhibition MIG 21 is the first in a series of large-scale international events of the four-year project Risk Change (2016–2020), co-financed by the Creative Europe program of the European Union. The project is also supported by the Municipality of Maribor and the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Slovenia.
