CCB, Art Gallery, Knez Mihailova 6

The format New Tradition follows up to the successful exhibition “Hosting the Dolomites – Appropriation of Space 7/7”, shown in Moscow (Susev Museum of architecture), Vienna (Italian Embassy), Zagreb (ORIS House of Architecture) and Thessaloniki (Bensoussan Han) between 2016 and 2018. The re-adaptation of the exhibition concept aligns to the Theme of the BINA 2019 “Positive and Active”, fostering a deeper relation to the cultural and build environment, showing 8 architecture and 8 art positions.

The exhibition concept rests upon the well-known hospitality of South Tyrol by expressing its cultural and multi-lingual character. As being a three-language speaking region, with a many faceted cultural scene, the exhibition aims to extend an invitation at the common table. Visitors take a seat at the big table, where architectonical and artistic dishes are served (exhibited). Tradition, re-interpretation and creative outwork are listed on the menu. Mahlzeit (German), Buon appetito (Italian), Bun Apetit (Ladin).

To display the rich-facetted cultural practices of architects and artists of South Tyrol, an international Jury, consisting of Verena Konrad (VAI – Vorarlberger Architekturinstitut), Boris Podrecca (Atelier Boris Podrecca), Eva Gratl (Cultural Publicist), choose among the applications of four different categories: Young | Established | Tradition/Reinterpretation | Innovation. Important umbrella terms, helping to frame and outline the exhibition title “New Tradition” and corresponding curatorial concept.
