The only truly sacred Temple is the world of men united by love.

(Lev Tolstoj)

Respect… Listening… Contamination… Fusion…

5 artists have come together, to take the international language of Art to its most expressive point.
5 artists open to influences through the relationship and understanding of common experiences; sharing affinities and diversities, without fear of offering or sharing.

This exhibition started with an online discussion of the following topics:
“Why are people afraid of differences, being them either cultural, religious, racial or linguistic? Why it is not immediately understood that diversities are a treasure?”

This group show combines the universality of art with the idea of political trans-nationality. Equality and dissimilarity are two opposing terms that represent conflicting tensions. In this increasingly globalised world we need to acknowledge and accept differences between people and social groups, in order to finally give meaning to the word ‘humanity’.  Tolerance, in its broader sociological meaning, is based on the belief that intolerance, and the attempt to eliminate all differences (leading to one single thought and way of living), leads to violence and social instability. Non-tolerant behaviour is an uncompromising way of being, which is completely blind to consequences; a residue of a mentality that belongs to an era in which encounters and confrontations with the "different" were extremely limited. Today, in this globalised society, we should be aware of the fortune and fruitfulness of a peaceful coexistence of differences.
In this show, 10 hands and 100 fingers work together focusing on CREATIVITY: understood as an expression of FREEDOM, and as a strategic element that lies at the centre of all sectors of human activity, including communication, religion, ecology, education, philosophy, spirituality, economy, labour, nutrition, politics, and science.
