MIG 21 theme

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.

MIG 21 interconnects artistic visions and humanist values with various visual, sonic, and interdisciplinary media, which is a novelty in Europe. The exhibition will showcase works from the fields of painting, sculpting, photography, video, fine arts, intermedia installations, bio art, and science & art research works. The artworks represent a selection of paradigms that have marked the realm of contemporary art for the last 30 years, with a special emphasis on thematic and interdisciplinary connections between the visual and the contemplative-technological-innovative.
