VENICE EXPERIMENTAL VIDEO AND PERFORMING ART FESTIVAL 2023
Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello – Venice, Italy | May 19, 2023
ITSLIQUID Group, in collaboration with ACIT Venice – Italian-German Cultural Association, is pleased to announce the opening of VENICE EXPERIMENTAL VIDEO AND PERFORMING ART FESTIVAL 2023, a one-night event of video and performance art, that will be held in Venice at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello (click here to book your ticket), on May 19, 2023, during the same period of the 18th Venice Biennale of Architecture.
We have invited performers, dancers, video makers and filmmakers to be inspired by the magical power of Venice, to analyze the hidden parts of our identities, through an immersive experience inside the fascinating universe of the complex labyrinths of our consciousness.
This year on May 19, 2023, we are glad to host Hybrid Futures – Artificial Intelligence and Architecture, a panel dedicated to artificial intelligence. Tim Fu, Architectural Designer at Zaha Hadid Architects, Lev Libeskind, Creative Director at Libeskind Studio Design and Luca Curci, Founder of Luca Curci Architects, together with other panelists and guests, will provide a unique opportunity to explore the intersection of technology and human identity, offering deep insights into how AI is shaping the awareness of self and society and into the ethical, cultural, and philosophical implications of it. By examining these complex and multifaceted issues, the panel will provide a better understanding of the potential of AI, encouraging reflections and dialogues around the role of technology in shaping our shared future.
VENICE EXPERIMENTAL VIDEO AND PERFORMING ART FESTIVAL 2023 is focused on the relationship between body and space, and the hybridization between identities and cultural/physical/social/urban settings in contemporary times. People, backgrounds, societies, progress, cities and all their inputs create hybrid identities, modifying each other and being mixed in prospect to shape a better world.
The human body is a changing system that connects us with other bodies and spaces to perceive the surrounding reality: a strong communication system with its own language and infinite ways of expression.
After many years of research and exhibitions about the evolution of the idea of identity, we asked artists to share their personal tales through videos and performances, to create a link between their personal experiences and the audience, to tell us which are the stories and reasons beneath their works.

Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello is one of the most known palaces of the Renaissance in Venice. It is a historical building dating back to the 16th century, and it has been owned by several noble Venetian families, as demonstrated by the frescoed ceilings, the artistic stuccos and the fine furniture that enriches its rooms. The Palace welcomes visitors with its beautiful private garden on the ground floor, and then it gathers the guests in its large first-floor salons, in which past and present dialogue together. The restored Old Masters’ frescoes and the contemporary art masterpieces that are periodically shown in the exhibitions hosted here, make Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello the perfect location for the balance between old and new, between ancient environment and contemporary art, architecture and design.
Today the building is managed by ACIT Venice – the Italian-German Cultural Association – which is considered one of the most important intercultural associations in Europe. Thanks to the ACIT unceasing cultural activity, Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello has nowadays frequent collaborations with the Goethe Institute and with other local and international institutions, maintaining its ancient reputation. Because of these relations, it presents a huge program of memorable art exhibitions, conferences, congresses and concerts. Among the last institutional exhibitions, is its participation in the 58th Venice Biennale with the Guatemala pavilion, the Dominican Republic pavilion and the Grenada pavilion. ITSLIQUID Group already had the pleasure to hold some festivals and exhibitions in Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello, such as MORPHOS Festival and FUTURE IDENTITIES Festival, both in 2014.
