The title of the exhibition 'Our World Is Burning' refers to the human dramas, which the successive conflicts in this region have caused – and still do – but also to the ecological crisis and environmental catastrophes, such as immensely destructive forest fires, from Amazonia to Siberia, without forgetting California and Australia. But fire is not just a statement of danger. It is also a symbol of the powerful democratic impetus experienced in this region since the Arab Springs. The exhibition thus affirms that artworks have the ability to intervene by adopting a position when confronted with the disorders of the world. Fire then refers to the intensity of artistic creation.
