The Gabrovo Biennial is strictly dedicated to humour and satire in art. The theme for 2019 is DIMENSIONS OF PUBLICNESS. Artists are invited to contribute their edgy takes on the concept of the public sphere.
The exhibition will present contemporary art and cartoons addressing the following topics:
• public space
• public art
• public debate
• public broadcasting
• public interest
• public threat/security
• and other whatchamacallits with public dimension.
Forty-seven years of poking fun at issues of utmost social significance give us the confidence that it is time to call on humour in order to deconstruct and redefine whatever is left of the concept of publicness. An international jury selects the works and awards prizes.
The show runs from 18 May until 30 September 2019. Read more about the Gabrovo Biennial.
