ITSLIQUID Group, in collaboration with Venice Events and Ca’ Zanardi, is proud to announce VISIONS, third appointment of ANIMA MUNDI 2019 – International Art Festival, curated by Arch. Luca Curci (founder and director of THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space, ITSLIQUID Group and Luca Curci Architects) that will be held at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space from October 03 to November 24, 2019 and at Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi from October 04 to November 24, 2019 in Venice.
The Festival will run from May to November 2019, in the same period of the 58th Venice Art Biennale, “May you live in interesting times”, curated by Ralph Rugoff and organized by La Biennale di Venezia, chaired by Paolo Baratta, hosted at the Giardini and at the Arsenale venues.
The festival focuses on the concept of ANIMA MUNDI, that according to several historical cultures, religions and philosophical systems, is an intrinsic connection between all living entities on the planet, which relates to the world in a similar way as the human soul is connected to the human body. Plato expressed his thought about the ANIMA MUNDI in the Timaeus, “this world is indeed a living being endowed with a soul and intelligence… a single visible living entity containing all other living entities, which by their nature are all related”.
ANIMA MUNDI is the invisible energy behind all the natural and the artificial elements that allows the planet to live. Thanks to the hidden connections of ANIMA MUNDI, all the ecosystems of the Earth, before and after the appearance of the mankind, found their equilibrium, their ways to live and to develop themselves, to transform and to evolve. All the beings of the planet, plants, minerals, animals are permeated by a secret force that has always stimulated the human thought and research.
ITSLIQUID Group is running a charity initiative aimed to support some of the most important no-profit organizations that are internationally involved in the environmental protection, such as United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, One Tree Planted, The Ocean Cleanup and Plastic Oceans. This choice comes from the essence of ANIMA MUNDI in which everything is related to the living entities of the planet. Click here for more information.
