B3 Moving Image Forum: the art program of B3 2021
Identity is the focus of the B3 Biennial 2021. In its art program, “B3 Moving Image Forum”, 25 artists will shed light on this subject, showing 40 works and asking the question: What does identity mean for the individual, what for the collective? What connects us, and what becomes binding? What is the role of narration and its artistic implementation in this context?
The works from the “Moving Image Forum” can be experienced online and at 2 venues:
At MyZeil shopping center, a new partner of B3, 25 artworks from the art program “B3 Moving Image Forum” will transform 5 vacant stores into temporary galleries. The goal is to give people the opportunity to rediscover public and inner-city space through art. Among the works are some from a new B3 project: The “B3 Talent Forum“ is dedicated in a special way to promoting emerging creative talent.
In addition, 10 works by artists from the “B3 Moving Image Forum” will be shown in THE ARTS+ area at the Frankfurt Book Fair. Since 2018, the B3 Biennial, the Frankfurt Book Fair, and the creative festival THE ARTS+ have been strategic partners.
