As cultural boundaries are becoming increasingly blurred in contemporary society, national identities are becoming progressively more difficult to address and define. The Internet contributes to our awareness of being part of a much bigger community than the one delineated by our country’s borders, however Biennales across the world still tend to operate within these boundaries.

This series of talks will address the burdens and privileges of a multicultural generation. It will question if national affiliation is still important in defining one’s understanding of self, and will also look at how national narratives are impacted by the work of cultural producers that affiliate with more than one geography.
