The Mediterranean Sea and its coasts create a »liquid« continent that has been shaped since time immemorial by the exchange of people, goods and knowledge. Disparaged by the West as backwards and corrupt, it has moved into the focus of world events through the Arab Spring, as well as civil wars and banking and governmental crises.
This exhibition looks at this turbulent phase through over 20 critical and
poetic artistic perspectives on »Terra Mediterranea«, investigating instead the dividing, the connecting.
In cooperation with the NiMAC - Nicosia Municipal Arts Centre in Cyprus.
With an extensive program of events, HALLE 14 presents the exhibition from September 17 to November 20, 2016.
