Two open calls Venice Architecture Biennale 2020

09 october 2019

Het Nieuwe Instituut and the Creative Industries Fund NL present a collaboration aimed at supporting designers and promoting knowledge in the field of architecture before, during and after the 17th Venice Architecture Biennale, which takes place from 23 May to 29 November 2020. Deadline open call: 20 november 2019.

The two institutions are joining forces to make the best possible use of the Venice Architecture Biennale as an international platform for topical spatial and social issues and to conceive it as a catalyst for an ongoing discussion about the significance of architecture for the way we live together. This discussion is directly related to the central question posed by curator Hashim Sarkis: How will we live together?

Het Nieuwe Instituut and the Creative Industries Fund NL are jointly launching an open call for a public parallel programme at the Dutch pavilion on the theme of 'Multispecies Urbanism'. In addition to the joint open call, the Creative Industries Fund NL will issue another open call for projects related to the theme How will we live together? at the main locations of the architecture biennale.

Open Call Venice Architecture Biennale #1 was launched on 8 October 2019 by Het Nieuwe Instituut in collaboration with the Creative Industries Fund NL and focuses on the Dutch pavilion's public parallel programme. Het Nieuwe Instituut is responsible for the Dutch contribution to the architecture biennale. Researchers and designers are invited to submit proposals that reflect on and respond to the theme of the Dutch pavilion: Multispecies Urbanism. The selected projects will form part of the Dutch pavilion's parallel programme.

Open Call Venice Architecture Biennale #2 was launched on 8 October 2019 by the Creative Industries Fund NL and focuses on the development of Dutch initiatives and projects at the main locations of the Architecture Biennale, including the Arsenale and the Giardini. Researchers and designers working in the field of architecture are invited to submit proposals that reflect on and respond to the central theme of the Venice Architecture Biennale 2020: How will we live together?
