Commenting on the curatorial approach for eva International 2014 El Baroni said: “I would like the 36th eva International 2014 to be reflective of the many complex questions that the current heightened global political moment raises. Are we witnessing the continuing dominance of old political narratives? While these old narratives may be slowly showing signs of cracking, what are the obstacles facing the emergence of new narratives? Rather than being any kind of curatorial concept, this statement is intended solely as a hint at a direction that will evolve and nuance as the project develops.”
