The FADING BORDERS project will be presented in both exhibition spaces held by Romania in Venice: the Romanian Pavilion in Giardini di Castello and the New Gallery of the Romanian Institute of Culture and Humanistic Research in Palazzo Correr.

The Biennale Architettura 2021 will take place in Venice from May 22 to November 21, with a preview on May 20th and 21st. There will be 63 national participations in the historic pavilions from Giardini, Arsenale and in the historical city centre of Venice.

“FADING BORDERS emphasizes and opens the conversation about how the mobility of large masses of people will impact the way architects could imagine future forms of housing in the broad sense. Migration has been so far a phenomenon related to poverty, war, natural disasters, but the reality of migration should be brought to the centre of discussions about how we shall live, how cities will live, because, most likely, this phenomenon will expand and it will be linked to the pursuit of improving the quality of life. So, we want to initiate a constructive, positive debate, a look to the future, a hypothetical discussion about how we will live together when the word <<together>> becomes very diverse, and the duration of the housing acquires a different dynamic”.

Ștefan Simion, Fading Borders curator
