APPREHENSION. UNDERSTANDING THROUGH FEAR OF UNDERSTANDING
The exhibition will explore the double meaning of the word apprehension, the fear or anxiety that something bad might happen and in the sense of comprehension. The relation between the two needs a closer look. How fear is developed and maintained throughout our lives and how it can become a tool for learning and understanding. How it is administered and maintained socially, politically, how it affects the development of our ideology and how we can learn from it. The time is now to reassess and to raise some questions about certain aspects of everyday life that might have gone unnoticed. (Extras from the curatorial text by Gergő Horváth)
Gergő Horváth (b. 1993) is an artist, with a special interest in curatorial activity and cultural management. He studied music and is presently studying art with a special interest in makeshift politics and DIY social structures. Since 2012, he collaborated in various instances with Pavilion. Recently he was exhibited in the “Affluence of the working class from differentiation to collectivism” and curated “100 Hungarian Minutes”. He published several texts in different magazines. Currently he works and lives in Romania and is a Hungarian citizen.

ABOUT BUCHAREST BIENNALE
BUCHAREST BIENNALE promotes awareness and dissemination of the culture, particularly in the fields of the arts, by means of exchanges and cultural cooperation within Europe and beyond and is looking for strategies that would develop mutual understanding and offer insights from different perspectives.
We assume the urge of a dialogue with the public, of a platform for artists as much as the need of reinventing new forms of artistic expression and encourage curators to make a large selection of artists who would represent best the European unity in diversity.
BB aims to resolve the twofold problems of tradition and modernity, past and present, localism and global village, it strives to attain a balanced status between its aesthetic/artistic quality and popularity by overcoming the feeling of estrangement that the general public has towards the contemporary arts.
BB is building a strong partnership between Bucharest – which is more than a city, it is a symbol of how political can be reflected in every aspect of life – and the Western Europe; it links to an universal problem – that does not take into consideration the geographical or historical context – the problem of resistance in daily life, of details and living as a way of living. BB is a structure able to transform the City itself into an ongoing workshop-cum-field of action.
Today, BUCHAREST BIENNALE is the only contemporary art biennial in Central and East Europe.
