The videos and the photos must to be based on the main concept of “Liquid Identities” based on fluidity, motion, changing networks and cities transformations. In contemporary society boundaries are getting more and more fleeting, and also the identity; what makes every person or place a recognizable entity, turns out fluid, multiple, making the cultural, religious, ethnic borders changeable too. This change, this mutation has allowed to cross the inside of the identities creating new possible crossings, new blends. And it’s just this “contemporaneity” that makes our civilization conceived as subjected to a process of continuous evolution and cultural hybridization. There is no more limit between an identity and the other one but it is possible to walk, to cross a passage and to find oneself halfway through it, in a non-place, in a non-identity. This project is about temporary roles in changing rules, thinking about liquid borders in new evolving worlds.

The number of works with which you can participate is maximum three. All video works must be on DVD (PAL or NTSC), no matter what the original source medium. The maximum length of videos should be 20 minutes. All photo works on every kind of support are accepted. The maximum dimensions allowed per each image are 100 cm per side.

President Paolo Baratta, Architect Winy Maas, launched the EU CITY Manifesto with a large audience at the preview days of Architecture Biennale, « Through architecture we show what kind of democracy we can build. What kind of Europe do we want? » asked President Baratta in his opening remarks at the EU City Manifesto Conference in Venice on the 27th of August 2012. « The possibility of a splintered Europe comes again into perspective. How to react to that? How to visualise this and to give optimistic visions? » answered architect Winy Maas (MVRDV, T?F).

“If one did not know that the media constantly exaggerates, one could almost conclude – as the Süddeutsche Zeitung has – that the Venice Biennale of Architecture really is the world’s most important architecture exhibition.
However, I believe that the word “exhibition” is not intended to describe an exhibition in this case, rather that the notion only designates the event per se. In other words an industry meeting, like a product fair. Other critics fail to even question the purpose of the exhibition, rather they immediately conclude that the coming together, the meeting, the networking is the key aspect. That’s that!”

This year’s Biennale theme ‘Common Ground’ shows how the work of the major protagonists of contemporary architecture – often regarded as independent individual creations – is in fact based on historical lineages of collective research. This is also true of the work of Zaha Hadid Architects. It is well known that the early work was initially inspired by Russian Suprematism.
