Everywhere but Now is the title given to the principal Exhibition by Αdelina von Fürstenberg the Chief Curator of the 4th Thessaloniki Biennale of Contemporary Art, an Independent Curator and Film Producer, President of the NGO ART for The World.
Over 50 artists from 25 countries - from Brazil and Cuba to Iran and India, as well as many Mediterranean countries, including 14 artists from Greece - will present their work, using any type of art, be it painting, sculpting, photography, video installations, film or performance art.
Αdelina von Fürstenberg comments on the exhibition title: “Everywhere but Now closely relates the question of space of different genius loci in the Mediterranean area with the question of time of creation in our contemporary world. It’s in fact, Ernst Jungers’s Hic et nunc that in the "Treaty of Rebel" describes the rebel as an independent and free man of action, very similar to the artist’s condition. Everywhere but Now broadens also the concept of hic and nunc by giving a wider significant: a vision that adheres to the ideals of existentialism and recognises man’s fragility in his condition over: the Being there, Dasein of Heidegger. In addition, we can perceive in the title the fundamental character of Dasein as Being-in-the-world, in taking the world as horizon of the project.”
The 4th Thessaloniki Biennale of Contemporary Art under the general title Old Intersections – Make it New includes exhibitions, art events in museums and monuments; art installations, performances, workshops, conferences, educational programmes, interventions in public spaces and guided tours in Thessaloniki, Greece.
