As in previous editions of the international photography, video and performance festival, the chosen exhibition venue for the sixth edition is an abandoned urban building. This time it is a beginning of '900 house, former Municipal Police headquarters for about thirty years starting from the '70s. The worn out and emptied interiors highlight the substantial overlap between most recent interventions (fitted carpeting, false ceilings, laminates, neon lamps) and those dating back to the original artefact made of stucco, wood flooring and cast iron radiators. This contrast becomes the aesthetic spark for the scenic choices. The exhibition design interventions are minimal in order to allow the dialogue between the exposed prints and the spaces. For the Bi6, CCRZ has also designed the graphic image together with Bruno Monguzzi.
