Since its first edition in 2008, has been organized by CABININ, the conceptual structures of the biennial were aimed at integrating contemporary art into the everyday lives of citizens and into the city’s everyday landscape. Artists and art initiatives from Turkey and around the world are invited to explore the connections/nodal points of the complex relationships between all living and non-living structures, through questions on "How can we produce together?", "How do we live together?", "How do we work together?". The 8th Çanakkale Biennial will suggest looking at different forms and methods, as well as paradoxes, impossibilities, singular chances, and probabilities of dreaming together, living alone in crowds, meeting around a table, and acting as a part of nature, while crossing different concepts such as hospitality, friendship, cooperation, labour, responsibility, justice, forgiveness, memory, mourning, joy…
