CALL FOR ARTISTS
ANIMA MUNDI | APRIL – JULY 2022
Venice International Art Fair
Deadline: March 13, April 17, May 29 2022
ITSLIQUID Group, in collaboration with Venice Events, EGO’ Boutique Hotel and ACIT Venice – Italian-German Cultural Association, is pleased to announce the open call for ANIMA MUNDI 2022, international exhibition of photography, painting, video art, installation/sculpture, and performance art, that will be held in Venice at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space (click here to learn more about our location), at ITSLIQUID ART SPACE – Venice Grand Canal (click here to learn more on this venue), at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello (click here to learn more on this venue) and in other prestigious venues between April and July 2022, during the 59th Venice Biennale of Art.
The festival focuses on the concept of ANIMA MUNDI, that according to several historical cultures, religions and philosophical systems, is an intrinsic connection between all living entities on the planet, which relates to the world in a similar way as the human soul is connected to the human body.
Plato expressed his thought about the ANIMA MUNDI in the Timaeus, “this world is indeed a living being endowed with a soul and intelligence… a single visible living entity containing all other living entities, which by their nature are all related”.
COVID-19 Protection Concept – The health and safety of our staff and visitors are of predominant importance to ITSLIQUID Group.

ANIMA MUNDI is the invisible energy behind all the natural and artificial elements that allows the planet to live. Thanks to the hidden connections of ANIMA MUNDI, all the ecosystems of the Earth, before and after the appearance of mankind, found their equilibrium, their ways to live and to develop themselves, to transform and to evolve. All the beings of the planet, plants, minerals, animals are permeated by a secret force that has always stimulated human thought and research.
The festival aims to discover these multiple forms of hidden connections between the soul and the body, mankind and the natural elements, the natural spaces and the cities. We invite artists to show their reflections about the various ways in which the ANIMA MUNDI expresses the relationships among all the existing entities and the natural and cultural systems and to represent by their artistic works the processes of the evolution of the world in which we all live. Artists, designers and architects are invited to talk about ANIMA MUNDI through photo reportage of cities, hidden places, photographic documentaries, personal experiences, presenting their works of photography, painting, sculpture/installation, design and architecture, video-art and live performance.
Artists interested in taking part in our shows are free to be sponsored and supported by institutions, organizations, governments and their representatives; the logos of their sponsors will be included in all the communication (digital and print) of the events. Artists are free to take part in one or more events.
To take part in the selection, send your works submissions with a CV/biography, some still images (for video-art), links of videos/performances and pictures via e-mail to email@example.com
