harbour for cultures

H/C is an ongoing two-year project launched by Trieste Contemporanea at the eighth CEI Venice Forum for Contemporary Art Curators (Venice, May 12, 2017). Drawing inspiration from the real case history of how to convert and reuse the area of the Porto Vecchio (old port) of Trieste and ideally looking for an accessible model of a shared society, the H/C research and discussion is based on both the historical functions of port activities carried out for economic interest (exchanges of goods, insurance issues and commercial profit) and the idea of “suspension” inherent in the imaginary of a port (of arriving, temporarily belonging and then leaving).
Thanks to the creative minds of art curators, artists and other professionals, H/C project will develop into curatorial workshops and meetings, in-depth studies, art exhibitions, multidisciplinary events and focused questionnaires, addressed both to experts and non-experts, in view of shaping an image of a “new” port of cultures.
