DB purposely seeks to examine what are often seen as the dominant centers of artistic production and display. This includes curatorial practice, exhibition models and education. Each biennial aims to investigate and reflect on emerging developments in contemporary art, set within a shifting context.
Each DB comprises a range of activities extending over an indeterminate period. This includes publications, discussions and exhibitions staged in various locations culminating in a final “biennial.” In this way, DB aims to create a workable interface between prevailing international artistic and intellectual debates, paying attention to the specific qualities and idiosyncrasies of a given time.
Inherent to DB’s nomadic character is the desire to explore geographical and psychological territory of given spaces, both physical and virtual, referring both to border-lines and concepts. This process aims to establish closer dialogue between particular cultural and artistic situations and the broader, international fields of contemporary art, theory and politics.
