About the Event

So, after two successful international projects already organized by DLUD, we have a new international project for which the design was made by dr. Ines Vodopivec, project leader is the academic painter Hamo Čavrk, president of DLUD.

On the opening day of the 1st International Biennale, August 19, 2019, a jury consisting of Simon Kajtna, the president of the jury, and members Olga Butinar Čeh, Jasna Kocuvan Štrukelj, Iztok Hotko and Robert Lozar will make a selection of two biennial winners. The Biennale and Grand Prix Biennale will be awarded.

The feelings associated with the common denominator of "fear" completely divert public attention from other, more important topics and problems. Art, together with other stakeholders and actors in social processes, must raise awareness and draw attention to this phenomenon, while offering positive existential models of being and solving a challenging world problem. Fear is an important factor in the life of every individual and is present in our daily lives. There are very few emotions that have such an impact on our functioning, behavior and feeling as fear. Fear is a basic survival mechanism that is triggered in response to a stimulus - pain or danger. Fear is the emotional basis of anxiety, anxiety, which is the common denominator of all emotional and mood disorders and is also an integral part of the fundamental personality dimension. The study-based biennial exhibition will shake our moral principles, political and religious aspirations and, last but not least, remind us of the ecological and environmental conundrums associated with man's relationship to nature and people.
