press release

We are living in unstable times. Sometimes we feel like there is nothing we can hold on to. But at the same time we all are going through a fascinating period of transition: the transformation and restructuring of whole systems in the world.

Society is a flexible and steadily changing structure. It encompasses human connections, different personal interests, passions, and hopes. It is also constrained by global economical, political and cultural conditions. This is the basis of a primary controversy - between flexibility and stability, between order and disorder, and that precarious balance between them.

Unceasing flows of capital and people across borders, and dialogues through different channels such as the internet and other media have changed our understanding of what it is to belong to a community. People now feel that they belong to various communities even though they do not share a common territory. This also shows us that a national or regional culture does not reflect one homogenous identity.

Indefinite Destinations uses the notion of transformation as a starting point to look at new societies. Knowing that the subject is quite broad and that it is hard to deal with its every possible aspect, we want to bring artists together who may take on different positions, and whose trajectories do not intersect as well as those whose works are consistent and in dialog with each other. Some works will reflect directly on experiences or fiction; some will create a new reality to encourage the audience to think about other possible realities. Since we are all constantly confronted with these problems we would like to encourage the audience (and ourselves) to consider different possibilities.
