So bring yourself for another edition of Teorema.
So bring yourself ****
From amniotic fluids to saliva, blood, oceans, and rain, liquids bring both life and death: they are essential to human life but also hold the power of submerging, swamping, and drowning. Liquids have a definite volume but no fixed shape; they pass around borders and flow with extraordinary lightness and mobility.
In the 1990s, sociologist Zygmunt Bauman coined the expression “liquid modernity” to define postmodern societies’ shift towards liberalization and individualism. In his terms, constant change and unstable socio-political structures created a chaotic, fluid fragmented world in which individuals flow from one position to another.
Today, ‘liquidity’ seems to be more than ever an integral part of human existence. Societies are increasingly ruled by temporariness and fragility, constantly urging us to change and adapt to mundane precarity, while underwater cables power our Internet cloud and global warming melts glaciers and floods our cities.
Taking stock of these conditions, Teorema’s 2020 edition invites participants and visitors to explore ideas of liquidity and fluidity as openly and creatively as possible.
Let’s get together to imagine bridges over our liquified present.
