A conference in its tenth edition promoted by A Temple for Peace and ISKCON Hare Krishna on the broader themes of peace, culture, respect for human rights and the planet.
This year, with the collaboration of the curator Veronica Caciolli, we intend to deal with the dense and sometimes unexpected relationship between contemporary art and spirituality, through a broad perspective
multidisciplinary: from visual arts to music, from performance to cinema, from criticism to collecting, from religion to philosophy.
The illustrious guests of the Italian and international scene will enter into the folds of a fluid, stratified and elusive theme, which oscillates between the threat of its own disappearance and its urgency.
The artistic production has always turned to reality and to the invisible, up to present itself in more recent times, as an interpreter and instrument of criticism and social transformation.
If we are living in a constant condition of panic and self-exploitation, the “we” as a new subject and the search in the depths of the spirit become the tired and at hand reach
revolutionary and poetic acts, described by forms, missions and symbolic relationships.
In fact, what is at stake in this conference is not just aesthetic or solipsistic, but ethics and politics.
Greetings from Roberto Ciappi, Mayor of San Casciano Val di Pesa, Marco Romoli, A temple for peace, Parabhakti, ISKCON Hare Krishna.
