BIO25, curated by Angela Rui and Maja Vardjan, with its theme FARAWAY, SO CLOSE, responds to the observation that although the city remains the model within which the evolution of contemporary society is discussed and interpreted, we are recently witnessing a growing percentage of people that leave the city for other contexts and environments.

Its design(ed) narratives develop at seven locations crisscross Slovenia, after selecting several international design and architecture protagonists (named Translators), pairing them with Slovenian creative (named Profiles) in order to share knowledge and develop possible scenarios that enquire global / local issues by using several (remote) Slovenian landscapes as a paradigm. Slovenia, Your ideal summer destination…;)
