Around 1000 artists will take part in the Sarajevo Biennial - a number similar to the one in
Rome in 1999. Some of the artists will exhibit and perform their works in places significant for
that kind of artistic expressions while others will present their installations on the banks of the
Biennial disciplines - art subjects
The basic division of disciplines in the Biennals was set fifteen years ago. Today, however,
significant changes have taken place deriving from the changes in the artistic expression itself.
Interdisciplinarity, contamination, and interpenetration have come to represent key words in
artistic expression. They have made the barriers between disciplines less and less noticeable. All
this emphasizes importance of events such as the Biennial because their main task is to offer
new stimuli to the young artists.
For Sarajevo 2001 we propose a division of disciplines in which traditional disciplines find their
place although conceived as a separate sector of artwork.
Fine arts (painting, sculpture, engracving)
Installations and performances
Electronic music (Digital, DJs)
Design (visual, industrial, Web)
Culinary art (Gastronomy)
