Artworks that clandestinely reach Grozny in Chechnya in suitcases, and doubles of the artworks that travel around the world through art institutions: this is the EMERGENCY BIENNALE IN CHECHNYA conceived and organized by the independent curator Evelyne Jouanno with the support of the International Federation of Human Rights Leagues (FIDH, Paris), and the collaboration of the ex-diplomat artist Jota Castro for the itinerant part until "Bolzano stop". For the Milan stop at Isola Art Center Katia Anguelova and Alessandra Poggianti have invited 4 new artists : Gionata Gesi Ozmo, Bert Theis, Enzo Umbaca and Adrian Paci.
