In Vila Viçosa - Alentejo - PORTUGAL

15SET/18OCT, 2017

Theme: FRIENDSHIP

Friendship - connection with yourself, one another, and the web of life

 

Seven contemporary artists and photographers from different countries- Lithuania, Latvia, Georgia, Iran and Turkey – Cetin Erokay, Elmira Shokr Pour, Aleko Lomadze, Aina Putnina, Saulius Jankauskas, Sigita Adomaviciene and Zita Vilutyte, members of International Artists group IAF ANIMA MUNDI, are presenting them works at 1st  International edition of  Mithogenia Expo Fair ,In Vila Viçosa - Alentejo PORTUGAL. Exhibition organized by MITHOGENIA Unipesoal. Lda- International Art Academy and  International  Association & Foundation ANIMA MUNDI. The theme of the exposition is FRIENDSHIP.

 

There is something trancendent in this word.  And the artists had the task to disclose the meaning of this word in the context of the contemporary world. 

 Friendship is the highest kind of moral excellence. The friend should be the festival of the earth to you and an anticipation of the overman… Thus Spoke Zarathustra. 

 From Arisotle, through to the philosophers Montaigne and Bacon, and to

 Nietzsche, the notion of friendship continues to invoke philosophical discussion and

 thought; the most basic formative question being, “what is friendship?”  The variety of

 answers implies that friendship is a complicated issue, even though it is one of the most

elemental relationships a person experiences in life 

 ‚Aristotle confronts his audience with an ambiguous declaration: “My friends,

 there are no friends.” Centuries later, Montaigne paints friendship as almost mystical

 and beyond the limitations of expression.  Bacon argues that friendship is purely

 instrumental.  The interpretations of friendship are so varied that it seems friendship can

 either be the most sacred and beautiful relationship shared between two people or that

 friendship is the romanticized label that we give to two people using each other for their

 own personal gains‘ .  

The concept of the FRIENDSHIP artists of this exhibition describe as a unique structure instinctively created for the community of this world, not only humanity but also nature, part of which we are. Each individual’s presence essential to the whole, offering information from their particular perspective artists show that all things such as physical, psychological and spiritual relationships are not functioning in isolation or with judgments of others’ existence. The artists show how much we are keenly aware of and responsive to the minds and feelings, relationships, decisions, words and actions, responsibilities, communication,  as well as the seasons of the earth, the cycles of day and night, the winds, rains, and flow of rivers, the presence of other humans, birds, animals, insects, and plants. We live with a wide-open embrace and intimate connection with the vastly diverse web of life. 
 

The exhibition will be hosted by Alentejo Marmoris Hotel, in the city of Vila Viçosa, Portugal in September,2017. The International Academy of Arts Mithogenia has a project to develop the Alentejo region through art. Aiming at a spread of the culture and knowledge, together with the local community promoting arange of activities involving a sculpture support center, multidisciplinary artistic manifestations, workshops, art exhibitions among other diverse activities.

 “The DNA of European ART”

From 01-08 till 10-09-2016

(Lithuania-Latvia)

New ANIMA MUNDI project is based on the origins of the European countries, which aims to - late Neolithic archeological culture. It styles Corded Ware Culture or Battle Ax Culture which was common in the biggest part of European territory.

Based on historical material, a group of artists will research and will do creative work, which aim is to find the links between the Baltic Sea region countries in multi-culture of nowadays, and only rely on the old culture as a map, to proceed to the search of the best form of human coexistence and to hope for useful discoveries, even then if we go in different directions and the way we become aware of different options.

The Corded Ware Culture name and alternative name very metaphorically reflect today's multicultural society. Multicultural world allows cultures coexist, but multiculturalism policies do not help and hinder these crops to benefit from their coexistence. Thanks to the mutual tolerance the nearby cultural communities live very close to each other, but rarely go to the two-way dialogue.

A group of artists and scientists will try to answer the following questions:

- Does cultural pluralism can be developed in progressive spiral or it can become a field of battle ax?
- Is it valuable in itself?
- Is the value comes from the assumption and hope that it can improve the coexistence of different cultures?

  

With warm regards

Manifesto of ANIMA MUNDI movement

08-09-2015

Lithuania-Georgia

 

Never has civilization been menaced so seriously as today. The artist creates the art at a historical moment, under the blows of reactionary forces - political, economical, religious, ideological armed with arsenal of modern technologies. To be an artist in today’s world is multifaceted effort.

ANIMA MUNDI movement was born to be the platform of a new high culture, longing for transcendence and real meaning.

We would like to bring together exponents of all arts; painters, writers, musicians. Rooted in traditional values, we transport the eternal spirit against the dissolution of the profound, using different means, old and new, from Folk arts to Avantgarde.

Art is one of the basic social needs to which everyone has a right.

Art is a way of thinking.

Art does not have to be understood in its totality.

Artists have the right to disagree with affective, moral, philosophical, cultural, economic and political aspects.

Artists have the right to be respected and protected when they dissent.

Artists also have the right to be understood in the complexity of their disagreement. Artists should not be judged but discussed.

Governments, corporations, and religious institutions have the duty to provide a space for self criticism in which they are accountable for their actions, a space where the people can question them.

Governments should not control art and artists and must stop fearing ideas.

Artists have the right to create the work they want to create, with no limits; they have the duty to be responsible without self-censure, because self-censure paralyzes the possibility to exercise critical thinking.

Artists have the right to decide the value of an artistic statement.

In the critical moments of history the government has duty to protect art and artist.

Artist should not undergo political censorship as direct pressure on artist or not accessing economic support.

Artists should not sustain control of the right to move to the other countries.

A society in which is freedom of artistic expression is a healthier society.

An understanding of the nature of diversity, in particular areas of diversity relating to gender and identity must be grounded in reality and fit in with people’s experiences of the world. Because of this it is so important for artist to share his/her ideas, so that they can influence the changing structure of the world.

Cultural identities should not be discarded or ignored, but rather maintained and valued.

Critical thinking is the right of the artist and becomes evident in artistic practices.

 

 

Poets, philosophers, painters, designers, musicians of all genres are invited to join ANIMA MUNDI.
