My Art Encounters
The mediation program of the Art Encounters 2023 Biennale is a complex one, developed on several levels that self-generate themselves gradually. The first level, the core of the program, is represented by the mediator, the second level being represented by the actual act of mediation, in fact performing the exhibitions, while the last level develops in close relation with each visitor, their experience and moves further gradually.
Although the biennale has an important conceptual component aimed at new technologies, the mediation program will focus more on the technological process—that is, the thought algorithms that lead to change, which materialize in a process of scientific inquiry.
We try to propose some clues, suggestions, fragments of possible scenarios by which to influence someone’s route in a space inciting new ways of operating and relating to the exhibition. The exhibition is no longer understood as a simple venue where an event akes place, but as a tool for knowledge, a model for questioning possible futures.
