Triënnale Brugge 2018 – Liquid City

From 5 May to 16 September 2018, Bruges will form the backdrop to the second edition of the Triennial, an art trail in the heart of the historic city. With the theme Liquid City, the Triennial aims to investigate the role of a city like Bruges in a globalised and changing world. With their artistic and architectural installations, the participants in Triennial Bruges 2018 | Liquid City create welcoming public spaces in the city centre. These temporary interventions at less well-known and iconic places in the historic cityscape offer opportunities for wonder, encounter and dialogue.

The arts course interweaves the various aspects of the liquid city in three thematic lines: Inviting hospitable public spaces in the historical heart of the city, developed by artists and architects, transform the public space into temporary places where diversity leads to encounter. Creative collaborative projects between unexpected allies who transcend their often conflicting interests, radically and permanently change the urban fabric. Artworks in which the symbolic representation of urbanity is paramount, inspire identity, dreams and desires.
