Art Encounters 2021: time for Our Other Us

The art is our salvation in uncertain times. And our oasis of relaxation, beauty and poetry when we want to escape from the (not so nice, sometimes) reality. And those dozens of art works presented this year at Art Encounters 2021 are just the perfect motivation to plan an escape at Timișoara.

Under the title of Our Other Us, the 2021 edition of the Art Encounters Biennial will focus on the various types of cohabitation that we can project. This year’s Biennial is heavily influenced by the reflections and the projections that we all build in relation to ourselves and the Other, to boundaries and distances, to proximities and contacts, to the inward and the outward, and contemporary art is the most faithful reflection of all these dynamics.
