ARS22Living Encounters

 - ARS22
The catalogue of ARS22, the tenth edition in the series of major international contemporary art exhibitions originally launched in 1961 in Helsinki.
"ARS22 designs a choreography of gestures and positions that in their specificity and as a whole offer alternative paths to present-day detachment, disenchantment, isolation, and hopelessness, making visible the mutually dependent dynamics between individual and collective imaginaries both in their continuities and in their ruptures. ARS22 Living Encounters is a gathering that celebrates the intimate, multiple, shared, and dynamic constitution of life on the planet while projecting dreams, doubts, and hopes into the future." —João Laia

ARS22—Living Encounters explores the big questions and stories of our time, and creates a space dedicated to shared experiences and community. The exhibition features works by 55 artists or groups from 26 different countries.
Featuring compelling essays and a richly illustrated section dedicated to the artists in the exhibition, this catalogue guides the reader through the inspiring plurality of narratives that shape ARS22 Living Encounters.
