In a radical shake up of the Biennale concept, the Second Riwaq Biennale will not have a central exhibition but will consist instead of a series of curated conversations and actions bringing together local and internationally renowned architects, artists, conservationists, planners, curators and theorists.
Stemming from Riwaq’s (Centre for Architectural Conservation, Ramallah) central aim of protecting and promoting cultural heritage in Palestine, this biennale will be centred on a three-day symposium at Birzeit University on 22 - 24 October 2007.
The symposium aims to create contacts and networking opportunities between Palestinian and international artists, leading to a series of related workshops, exhibitions, projects, and gatherings to be organised throughout Palestine during 2007 and 2008.
For further information on the concept, the program of the symposium as well as of the different workshops and projects related to the Biennale, visit the official website:
