3. Bangkok Art Biennale


Mit dem Thema der dritten Ausgabe CHAOS : CALM spiegelt die Kunstbiennale Bangkok die Herausforderungen wider, mit denen die Menschheit in diesen schwierigen Zeiten konfrontiert ist. Kunstschaffende, deren Werke Turbulenzen, Traumata und Ängste widerspiegeln, erinnern uns an die Zerbrechlichkeit und Schwäche der menschlichen Spezies. Gleichzeitig bieten sie in unserer zerrütteten und scheinbar dystopischen Welt Einblicke in die Hoffnung, die Ausdauer und die Entschlossenheit, sich zu regenerieren und zu gedeihen. In diesem Chaos kann uns die Kunst überraschen und einen Weg zur Überwindung tiefer Spannungen aufzeigen, indem sie Kontexte schafft, die Ruhe, Reflexion und Gelassenheit fördern. CHAOS : CALM befasst sich mit Unterthemen, die sich auf das menschliche Dasein auswirken, wie geopolitische Rivalität, ideologische Auseinandersetzungen, Neokolonialismus, Migration und Diaspora. Diese Ausgabe widmet sich auch der Klimakrise, da in der Kunst der ökologischen Kollaps und die Zerstörung von Mutter Erde verarbeitet wird, während die dringenden Warnzeichen um uns herum weiterhin abgetan und ignoriert werden.

"The Bangkok Art Biennale encourages new ways of seeing and interacting with art through the lens of CHAOS : CALM, with impactful presentations by our selected artists in multiple venues across the city. As we move from strength to strength with our trilogy of artist announcements, this final list is a confident representation of international names and leading Thai voices that are united by artistic perspectives that shine a ray of light beyond the fray of our present time," comments Prof. Dr. Apinan Poshyananda, Chief Executive and Artistic Director of the Bangkok Art Biennale.

Since its inaugural edition, the Bangkok Art Biennale has continued to push boundaries and make art accessible to the public at sites across the capital city. At BAB 2022, visitors will be able to enjoy the exhibition throughout the urban area at venues including: Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (BACC), Queen Sirikit National Convention Center (QSNCC), as well as experience contemporary art in traditional heritage sites including Wat Phra Chetuphon Wimon Mangkhalaram Rajwaramahawihan (Temple of the Reclining Buddha or Wat Pho), Wat Arun Ratchawararam Ratchawaramahawihan (Temple of Dawn or Wat Arun), Wat Prayurawongsawat Worawihan (Temple of Iron Fences or Wat Prayoon), and Museum Siam: Discovery Museum, a museum dedicated to the history and culture of the Thai people. BAB will also take place at Central World as an additional venue that has been added along the City Route. Situated in the heart of Bangkok, Central World is a large retail multiplex with world-class entertainment and services. The list of venues is completed by: BAB Cafe, The PARQ, JWD Art Space, Samyan Mitrtown, and The Prelude, One Bangkok.

The 2022 edition will also launch the BAB Virtual Venue as a new venue edition, which will showcase a number of innovative artworks specifically created for the digital realm. In the post-pandemic world, technology has been a critically important tool to support accessibility in contemporary art and the creative industries, while also offering artists new mediums to create and share their work. Moreover, BAB 2022 will continue presenting its rich digital programme of talks, symposiums, live performances and virtual walkthroughs to allow the international community to engage with the Biennale online.
