Every event of the biennial is created from scratch, i.e. by changing the structure, the conditions of participation, the character of exhibitions, the conception, also by involving [new] partners, curators, artists and people working in different areas of culture for a common purpose: communication through the expression of art and creative processes.

Watch video of one of invited artist:

The 9th Kaunas Biennial UNITEXT will create conditions for immediate collisions of an artwork and a spectator, allowing the experience of art as a universal text. Curators of the exhibition together with artists will pursue a concept that is new and unfamiliar in a cultural context and will consolidate it by presenting practical examples. We will go into the question of a unitext, which is the latest link in work -> text -> intertext -> hypertext -> unitext semiotic chain of a philosophic / art criticism / artistic field.

In 2013, Kaunas Biennial UNITEXT will present works that do not require explanatory texts. Perception of these artworks is based on intuition, materiality and spontaneity, feelings and deja-vu, and they should be perceived employing here-and-now experience. An artwork that implies unifying experience can be seen as The Unitext in the field of contemporary art. In other words it is an artistic confrontation based on horizontal (dependable) relationship, or silent discourse, it is a catcher of consciousness of homo universum.
