Particolare.paths of democracy, the second exhibition of the diptych presenting selected works from the Signum Foundation Collection as well as works by invited artists took place during the 54th Biennale.
With the first part of the diptych, entitled Awake and Dream, was dedicated to the concept of desire, the second one, under the title Particolare (from the work by Giovanni Anselmo, 1972) .paths of democracy, refers to the concept of democracy .
The concepts of desire and of democracy lie within the field of the foundation's interests. Throughout a variety of artistic and societally-engaged activities, the foundation seeks to realize the ideal of openness to others. The desire of democracy arises in a society as a result of the pursuit of equality, justice and freedom.
The exhibition — within the obvious limits — is an attempt to illustrate the complex links between art and democracy. The changing course of history defines their mutual dependence in many ways but the defense of democratic values as well as the criticism of any new threats are always very important to the artists.
