The 33rd Biennial of Graphic Arts will be curated by the Slavs and Tatars art collective. It should not be overlooked that the central role of the curator as the selector of the works presented at the 32nd Biennial edition entitled Birth as Criterion acquired a chain mechanism in which the choice was left entirely to artists.

Main exhibition: Crack up - crack down

The 33rd edition of the Biennial of Graphic Arts will be on display at MGLC (Tivoli Mansion) and in the newly renovated Švicarija Creative Centre.

The focal point of the exhibition of the 33rd Biennial of Graphic Arts will be the idea of satire as a distinctly visual language, with the ‘graphic’ that marks the history the Biennial being understood and questioned in the broad field of the expressive, uninhibited, even lurid. Is each joke, as George Orwell maintained, a tiny revolution? Or does laughter and satire deflate the pressures and tension which could otherwise lead to political upheaval? Slavs and Tatars look to humour as both strategy and content. The visual glut of our times has spawned new aesthetic languages whose messages and discourse we often find distasteful. Though the graphic arts and satire each have their own distinct specifics, they both claim to speak for and to the people.
